For many Christians the Old Testament is daunting and confusing. The books are long and speak about a culture dramatically different from ours. Mark Devers sermons do not substitute for reading the Old Testament, but they do provide a wonderful help in understanding it. Dever unpacks the major themes of each book with remarkable clarity, and the book also shines in conveying the message of the Old Testament for today. Here is a survey to the Old Testament that is accessible and spiritually edifying.Thomas R.

To hear the Bible tell its own story in its own waythis is the obvious but all-too-rare strategy for reading the Book of books. I thank Dr. Mark Dever for showing us how. We are immeasurably enriched. Ray Ortlund, Jr. /Senior Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church, Nashville
This is a bold project, some might say foolhardy, but Mark Dever has brilliantly succeeded. This is no mere textbook; it is powerful preaching. We are not only introduced to the sweep and message of each book of the Bible but, above all, confronted by our great God and called to obey his living word.

In these distinctive overview sermons, Mark Dever manages to bring together around the core issues of each biblical book three concerns that ought to occupy every faithful preacher of Gods Word: theological content, exegetical wisdom, and pastoral application. Here is a walk through the Bible that is well worth taking! Timothy George /Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Executive Editor, Christianity Today
This is a good book, written by a pastor/scholar for people in the pew. Clear, concise, thoroughly readable. Buy two and give one to a friend.

I have long desired a book that would unlock the richness of the Old Testamentassisting both the pastor in the pulpit and Christians in their devotions. This is that book.C. J. Mahaney /Sovereign Grace Ministries
