Philip Yancey has a way of confronting our most cherished—but misguided—notions about the Christian life. In his newest book, Yancey challenges the perception that the New Testament is more important than the Old, that the Hebrew Scriptures aren’t worth the time they take to read and understand them. Writing as always with keen insight into the human condition and God’s provision for it, Yancey debunks this theory once and for all. Yes, he agrees, the Old Testament can be baffling, boring, and even offensive to the modern reader. But as he personally discovered, the Old Testament is full of rewards for the one who embraces its riches. 

With his candid, signature style, Yancey unfolds his interactions with the Old Testament from the perspective of his own deeply personal journey. From Moses, the amazing prince of Egypt, to the psalmists’ turbulent emotions and the prophets’ oddball rantings, Yancey paints a picture of Israel’s God—and ours—that fills in the blanks of a solely New Testament vision of the Almighty. As he reconnects for us the strong, sinuous chords that bind the Old and New Testaments, Yancey reclaims the Reformers’ deep sense of unity between the two. Most important, he says, reading the scriptures that Jesus so revered gives believers a profound new understanding of Christ, the cornerstone of the new covenant. “The more we comprehend the Old Testament,” Yancey writes, “the more we comprehend Jesus.”

    " The forward and the 1st chapter are worth the read in this book that is no longer being published. Yancey offers a highly readable apologetic for why all those who believe in God should read Hebrew scripture - and not just the 'highlights'. He includes great 'stories' in the remainder of the chapters that remind us who we are and whose we are. I particularly liked the chapter on the book of Psalms. "

    " My favorite Philip Yancey book. He really brings the Old Testament to life for me. I enjoy having his insight, it'sn not a Bible study on the Old Testament. My favorite chapter is the one on Job's life, helping me to grasp what to do with suffering in the world. "

    " It's ok... nothing here you won't get from reading the OT. I guess it's a book to talk you into doing just that. On that basis - it probably deserves 3-4 stars, but I was looking for something else. "
