Author John Jeske speaks to young and old Christians alike easing the intimidation that can come from studying a complex part of Scripture--the Old Testament. A bridge between the giving of the law on Mount Sinai and the victory won on Mount Calvary, this book demonstrates how God was intimately involved in the daily lives of his Old Testament people and how he revealed his plan of salvation to them. Without using complex terms to explain different concepts, the author goes into detail about the religion, culture, language, geography, and everyday life of the Israelites in order to help you better appreciate an often confusing portion of Scripture. He leads readers to the inevitable conclusion that Jesus is the central figure in the Old Testament. Includes illustrations.
