This book is not just another Devotional Book. Although the title might be misleading, the contents of this book are trully magnificent. The author did an incredible research and exposed her findings in a very organized and easy way to read. Divided in 365 "chapters", the idea is to ready one per day during one whole year. The way she develops each topic is elegant and she always finds and relates the chosen topic from the Old Testament with an equivalent from the New Testament. Very inspirational. Some passages touched me deeply, like the "Death of the First Born", where she compares the passage of the Angel of Death over the houses marked with the blood of the lamb with God's offering the blood of his own firstborn as a sacrifice for sin. Following the example given by the author, for me, the most important lesson learned from this book is that we should try to find Jesus not only in the New or Old Testament, but everywhere we look. We should try to find Jesus in the smile of a child, in the dawning of a day, in the raindrops falling on our heads, etc... This book was written by Nancy Guthrie in 2010. It was published by Tyndale Publisher House also in 2010 and they were kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through their blogger book review program.

The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament by Nancy Guthrie is a daily devotional that highlights and reveals Jesus through many of the Old Testament books. First of all to preface, I am not a huge fan of most daily devotionals nor am I in favor of daily devotionals being the primary source of the daily reading of scriptures. However, I am in favor of adding it to a daily diet of your personal reading of scripture. When I came upon this book I have thoroughly enjoyed making it apart of that daily diet. Unlike most daily devotionals, this is not filled with simple heart warming stories that feel like something out of a "Chicken Soup book". If you are looking for a feel good story to start your day with a dose of a Bible verse and cliché-ridden jargon; then this is not the daily devotional for you. What you will find is a lot of scripture with little opinion from the author. To go along with the scripture in each devotional you will find an explanation of where Jesus is in this scripture, often explained with history and/or New Testament scriptures to to back it up. I was truly impressed with the many attributes of Christ revealed in the book through the use of Old Testament scripture. I found this book very refreshing and and accurate depiction of the the prophesies involving the end times and the coming millennium kingdom by Jesus not only being a Prince of Peace but a righteous judge that will judge the earth. Most of all you will fall more in love with Jesus by learning about his many attributes revealed through the Old Testament, a time where Christ was not yet manifest of the earth. Nancy Guthrie has done the body of Christ a favor by writing this book and giving us something we would not find in any other daily devotional. I highly recommend this book as an addition to your daily dose of scripture.

One of my favorite parts of this book was actually the author's introduction. She writes such an honest, open account of how she came to write this book and her teachings and beliefs that led her to the knowledge of writing this book. One of my favorite lines in her introduction says "What I did not see, is that the Old Testament tells a story that only finds its completion in Jesus Christ." What a profound thought! In each day, Guthrie tells one story from the Old Testament or gives a brief summary of a particular event in the Old Testament. She then parallels it with a New Testament reference to tie it all together. These devotions are extremely easy to read, follow and understand. They are written in such a way that you would only be reading one page per day yet you are getting a lot of wisdom and knowledge in that short passage. I also like how Guthrie writes in a way that a new Christian to a seasoned Christian could benefit from this book. There is something in it for all stages and walks of life to glean from and learn from. This would be a great book for anyone no matter where they are in their Christian walk and has information and paralleled references that we all can learn and be encouraged from.
