CHRISTIAN VISION of the OLD TESTAMENT

Published by AuthorHouseBooks
Is there not a terrible lack of Bible literacy in our day; and is it not accompanied by a disturbing lack of faith exhibited even by scholars who interpret the Word of God? A remedy for such “ignorance of Scripture [which] is ignorance of Christ” (St. Jerome) may be found in this inspired work of synopsis and exhortation.
Short chapters with succinct titles cover thematic sections of all the books of the Old Testament, providing the reader with a comprehensive overview of the Hebrew Scriptures.
Employing a Christian perspective, the author helps us to recognize Jesus as the fulfillment of the Old Testament that we might discern “in God’s works of the Old Covenant prefigurations of what He accomplished in the fullness of time in the Person of His incarnate Son” (CCC 128).
Here we have a faith-filled presentation of the sacred text with special emphasis given to the significance of the NAME of the LORD (YHWH), which is at its heart.
Mr. Kurt’s book serves well as an aid for those who do not read the Bible or lack familiarity with its contents… and for everyone it is a call to greater reverence for the prophetic nature of God’s Word.
