Philip Yancey is consistently informative and challenging concerning questions of faith. Studies in the Old Testament books with personal commentary to further illuminate.

Shows how the Old Testament is relevant!
reviewed The Bible Jesus Read on
very interesting perspective. Some people like me read the New Testament almost exclusively. Reading the Old Testament in light of some of the New Testament readings gave a different, fuller, richer historical perspective. I think I like the idea of the book better than the book itself because I found some of the author's opinions very extreme.

Yancey gives an overview of the Old Testament with historical context and observations. This is a great resource for Sunday School teachers or anyone who wants to understand better the Scriptures read by those who wrote the New Testament.

This is an excellent look at the Old Testament, a part of the Bible that is not easily understood even by the author. He studied it extensively and came to conclusions that make it easier to relate to from our modern perspective. He reduces certain books to their simple solid form and explains how they can be meaningful to us and how they relate to our belief in God.
