Editorial Reviews

WILLEM A. VANGEMEREN
Prof. Duguid's The Gospel According to Abraham significantly helps Christians to see that Abraham is an important figure on the road that leads to the Lord Jesus Christ. The author pulls the reader into the dramatic unfolding of the story of Abraham as a significant stage in the larger story of salvation.
Bryan Chapell
Jesus explained that all the Scriptures that had preceeded him were about him. This means that if we preach of teach on any passage of the Old Testament and do not speak of him, we fail to mention the very thing that Jesus said the passage is about. . . . I am grateful for this eminently accessible book. . . . which closes the gap between Christ’s redemptive work and the life of Abraham.
D. A. Carson
One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one ‘story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.
Sinclair B Ferguson
At last a series on the Old Testament designed to provide reliable exposition, biblical theology, and a focus on Christ. These books should be like manna in the desert to pastors, preachers, teachers, and many individual Christians who struggle to come to terms with how to read the Old Testament.
