Item Description...
The heart of the Christian faith rests upon the confession "Jesus is Lord," yet faithful Christians sometimes overlook the fact that the Lordship of Jesus is firmly rooted in the promises and prophecies of the Old Testament. Moreover, knowing Jesus more fully entails knowing the story of God's salvation that was planned before the foundation of the world. Modern readers tend to forget that the declaration, before Abraham was I am, underscores the continuity between the promise to Abraham and its fulfillment in Christ. Acquiring a basic understanding of the relationship between the Old and New Testaments with respect to salvation's drama will enrich every reader's faith and appreciation for the Scriptures.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Concise yet accurate  Feb 1, 2000
The Old Testament -- or rather, the Hebrew Bible -- is an ancient text written by ancient people. Over the years, much has been discovered about it through various means, such as archaeology, form criticism, source criticism, etc. There is now a vast array of information, going from one extreme to another. This book, written by the Achtemeier's, does a great job condensing this information into a readable, understandable, yet controversial book. It makes people think about things such as the Hebrews had NO concept of history per se. They didn't write the Scriptures for history sake. They did it for faith's sake, with God working through the events that occured. As a result, these very faith Scriptures were the very ones our own Jesus of Nazareth used. Great presentation and great source for teaching an introductory course on the Old Testament!
Why Write A Book about the Bible When You Don't Believe It?  Aug 15, 1999
I was very excited to read this book, then wondered why I bothered. It is shallow; a mere summary of the Old Testament with the supposed reason of showing how the New Testament builds on the Old. They call much of the Old Testament "ancient legends" and "incomplete myths." They seem to be suprised that Abraham is a historical character. Then they proceed to say that the Church has replaced Israel. This book will probably end up in my trash can; paper shouldn't have been wasted on it.
