mirage790Rockford, MIAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Better when read along with the BibleNovember 27, 2012mirage790Rockford, MIAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I was surprised that this book had a rather low overall rating in the reviews, since I have been enjoying it and learning a great deal from it. Having been raised a Christian and hearing the OT and NT stories my whole life, for me this has been one of those 'epiphany moment' books more than once. I have been reading my Bible right along with it, whereas none of the other reviewers mention that, so maybe that is the difference.
One reviewer said it left her wanting more. Well, isn't that the whole idea! I don't think this book was meant to give all the answers but to be used as a short devotional and whet your appetite for more of God's Word. You'll never find all the answers in one book other than the Bible.
Some of the days entries were not as interesting as others, but I consider that as personal individuality of what one finds interesting, so that aspect of the book didn't turn me off.
All in all, I liked the book, found it educational and well written. I would definitely recommend it to others. In fact I already have on Facebook.
mnmh2 Stars Out Of 5This is not as direct as I expected.January 25, 2012mnmhQuality: 5Meets Expectations: 2I was expecting direct references to Jesus from Old Testament scriptures. Instead, so far, the references have been indirect not specific.
Juan Perez4 Stars Out Of 5Interesting readNovember 26, 2010Juan PerezQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3We, me and my wife, are using this book as a converstation starter before our prayer time. The conversation can be short sometimes as some of the entries are not that satisfying or just feel flat. Maybe it's our mood sometimes or maybe we are not getting what we expected from the book. However, there are other nights that we get an almost custom made spiritual fit. So we have decided to read and pray on, instead of setting the book aside.
Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Good Guide to reading Old TestamentNovember 15, 2010Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Sending Jesus to Earth was God's glorious plan A. From Genesis to Malachi, God set the stage for the coming of our Savior. In every story of every Old Testament book, in every regulation, task and duty, God was preparing His people to meet the only One who could save them.
In her introduction to "The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament," Nancy Guthrie explains that for most of her life, as for most of us, the Old Testament was taught as a series of faith stories and life lessons and the prophecies concerning Christ were the only places Jesus appeared. In reality, the Old Testament is preparing us to understand who He is and what He came to do.
This one year journey will take you through the Pentateuch, the Historical Books, Poetry and Wisdom and the Major and Minor Prophets. This is a perfect devotional for 2011 and a perfect opportunity to read through the Old Testament slow enough to discover hidden secrets and revealed truths you may have missed in a hurried reading or a skimming over. After all, God intended for us to read the Bible as a whole. Old familiar stories will come to life as you read about the true Manna from Heaven and the true Living Water and the Rock.
Christ lives in the Old Testament. He's not just an afterthought as a result of man's sin. He was with God during the creation of the world and He will be with God at the end of the world.
"Discovering Jesus" will make a perfect Christmas gift and will be the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. If you are trying to find the perfect material for your quiet time or your Bible study, Guthrie's book should be on your list.
AprilAge: 25-34Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5I did not enjoy this book as a devotionalOctober 13, 2010AprilAge: 25-34Gender: femaleValue: 2Meets Expectations: 1This is the first book that I have read by Nancy Guthrie and I was not impressed. I found this book to be more of a good read than a devotional. Each page took only a minute to read and there was no need to even open up your Bible. It gave incite on how we can find characteristics of Christ in Old Testament figures but that is about all.
I was left wanting more. It didn't really give any thing to think about after you were done reading.
