The Old Testament is not a mysterious, outdated book. It is God's biography, the story of his passionate encounters with his people, and the prequel to the story of Jesus. It is also the Bible that Jesus read, used, and loved. In his characteristically candid style, Philip Yancey probes seven carefully selected books--Job, Deuteronomy, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and the Prophets--and reveals how the Old Testament deals in astonishing depth and detail with the same questions we face today.
