    D. A. Carson in his new book, "The Scriptures Testify About

    D. A. Carson in his new book, "The Scriptures Testify About Me" published by Crossway explores Jesus and the Gospel in the Old Testament.

    From the Back Cover: The Bible's storyline is grand in its sweep, beautiful in its form, and unified in its message. However, many of us still struggle both to understand and to best communicate how the Old and New Testaments fit together, especially in relation to the person and work of Jesus Christ.

    Eight prominent evangelical pastors and scholars demonstrate what it looks like to preach Christ from the Old Testament in this collection of expositions of various Old Testament texts: Albert Mohler -- Studying the Scriptures and Finding Jesus (John 5:31-47) Tim Keller -- Getting Out (Exodus 14) Alistair Begg -- From a Foreigner to King Jesus (Ruth) James MacDonald -- When You Don't Know What to Do (Psalm 25) Conrad Mbewe -- The Righteous Branch (Jeremiah 23:1-8) Matt Chandler -- Youth (Ecclesiastes 11:9-12:8) Mike Bullmore -- God's Great Heart of Love toward His Own (Zephaniah) D. A. Carson -- Getting Excited about Melchizedek (Psalm 110)

    From the experience of the Israelites during the exodus, to the cryptic words about Melchizedek in the Psalms, here are 8 helpful examples of successful approaches to preaching the gospel from the Old Testament by some of the most skilled expositors of our day.

    There are individuals that believe that Jesus appears for the first time as He is presented in the Gospels and Acts then straight on through Revelation. D. A. Carson has provided us a Bible study that shows us that Jesus is there from the very beginning and in this book works through eight different books. For me this is an exciting study as I was always thrilled when my pastor taught on Jesus represented in "Types and Shadows" in the Old Testament. Now Mr. Carson and seven other authors display Him in eight books of The Bible. "The Scriptures Testify About Me" is not a book that should be rushed through, if you do you will miss all the flavor of these teachings. "The Scriptures Testify About Me" also is not a book that will be read once and then put on the shelf. On the contrary it is a book that will be referred back to over and over again. I liked this book a lot and recommend it highly! I think you will enjoy it as well and give it as gifts to your friends and loved ones. They will enjoy it and always remember you every time they read it.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Crossway. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
