In our home group we’ve been studying the first nine books of the Old Testament. I must say I have felt bogged down and discourage by endless battles and bloodshed and felt I needed a break! When I picked up this book, I did so tentatively. What I love about the Bible readings is that they are Christ-focused. Most take up only two pages of the book and so are manageable for today’s busy Christian. The writer seems to be talking directly to the reader, in a chatty style, with contemporary anecdotes and verbal illustrations where this will help the understanding. The author does not cover all the chapters of the Old Testament and sometimes the focus is on a whole passage or just a verse. However, it is Jesus who shines out of these Old Testament passages. Everything is very accessible to the new Christian, as well as coming fresh to the seasoned believer. I can’t wait for Volume 2 to be published.
