How do you read the Old Testament (and the New)? Are you looking earnestly for the culmination of all things in Christ, or are you using the Bible randomly as a book and guide for living "the good life now"? At the end of the Gospel of Luke, Christ Himself said to some puzzling followers: "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?" (Luke 24:25-26). What follows then is the greatest Bible study ever to have happened to those who were listening to Jesus: "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself." (v.27). This is a wonderful book on how to look for Christ especially in the Old Testament. Read it and then pass it along. This book has been originally published in 1909 (third edition), and is available in the public domain. In this edition, we updated the language, the punctuation, and biblical references.

Voicing one theme for the entire Bible and structuring all sermons around that idea may seem to be an impossible challenge. For veteran pastor and preaching professor Edmund Clowney it will not do to preach a text from either the Old or New Testaments without fully preaching its ultimate and primary focus-the person and work of Jesus Christ. He writes, "To see the text in relation to Christ is to see it in its larger context, the context of God's purpose in revelation." Clowney's rationale for emphasizing Christ's presence in the Old Testament rests on the purpose of the Hebrew Scripture. The Old Testament follows God's one great plan for human history and redemption, and the plan is not only from him but centers on him: his presence in his incarnate Son. The witness of the Scriptures to Christ is the reason they were written, so it is appropriate to emphasize this element in the Old Testament as well as in the New Testament. By offering numerous full-length examples of his own sermons that emphasize Christ as the principle theme of Scripture, Clowney illustrates for those who will never have the privilege of being his students how they can craft sermons which present Christ as the primary consideration of the text. He also offers specific instructions on preparing such a sermon. He discusses the personal habits of prayer and Bible study that prepare pastors to seek out Christ's presence. Clowney emphasizes the importance of including a specific application in every sermon so that Christ is presented both in what he says and does to reveal himself in the biblical text and in what he says and does to direct Christians' lives today. Students preparing for the pastorate, pastors desiring to increase their emphasis on Christ in their sermons, and those seeking Christ's presence in all of Scripture will find a help in Clowney's writings.

Charles Spurgeon once said that just as every road in England leads to London, so every text in Scripture contains a path to Christ. But there's still a chance of going the wrong way, blazing misleading trails where none previously existed. How can we be sure that we're reading our road map correctly? Dennis Johnson shows us that there are established routes we can trust. Guiding us along the network of trails in the Old and New Testaments, he points to the signs and markers that help us to identify roads to Christ. He surveys the Bible's sweeping story that makes up the lay of the land and explores different landmarks-the central motifs in Scripture that give us our bearings as we seek out Jesus. Our sermons, Bible studies, and personal devotions will be transformed as we navigate Scripture in light of its central purpose: to draw us in faith and love to our Prophet, Priest, and King.
