5.0 out of 5 stars A rich read from a very deep well 12 Oct 2010
By StephSeefeldt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Let's get this out of the way - I am a Nancy Guthrie fan. I read what she writes, and the Lord uses it in my life to draw me closer to Himself. That's just the way it is. So I was thrilled when I heard that Nancy's next topic would be the Old Testament, or, more specifically, the way that the OT narrative as a whole points to and finds completion in the incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ Jesus.

This book does not disappoint in the quest to plumb the depths of the Christ story from eternity past. Written in daily devotional form, there is just enough in every passage to chew on for a day - or maybe two - before moving on to the next. This would be a wonderful devotional companion to read alongside Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament by Christopher Wright - which is a headier, more academic take on the same subject.

Don't be fooled into thinking, though, that since this book is divided into daily readings, that it isn't 'deep' enough for your personal reflection or study. It is rich.

Part of what I'm learning as I grow closer to Christ by His grace is the whole idea of the redemptive movement of God ever since the fall - redeeming the whole of creation, not just me and my own little personal relationship with Jesus [which I value more than anything, by the way.] This wonderful book helps me understand the ways in which the God of Creation, who made the stars and calls them each by name, grafted *me* into His story, as He has wrapped His Son, the Redeemer, into the whole of it from eternity past. Major thumbs-up. Get this book!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 28 Nov 2010
By E. Hankins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have long been fascinated by the cross-references between Old Testament prophecy and the Gospels, as well as, other connections between the Old and New Testaments. Yet, I have hesitated to purchase books on this subject for fear that they might merely collect dust on my shelf. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Tyndale had published The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament. Unlike many of the more scholarly titles, this one is designed for lay persons and is divided into bite size portions which can be read in five to ten minutes.

I found this book Gospel-centered and encouraging. It would be an asset to those who are looking for ways to "preach the Gospel to themselves" daily. The devotions stand alone allowing the reader to begin in any location. Furthermore, there is a helpful index which would allow one to find devotions relevant to a passage he/she is already reading.

However, while there is much in this book to commend, there are a number of occasions in which Ms. Guthrie moves into spiritual interpretations not intended by the original authors of Scripture. These interpretations are mere speculation and have no Biblical support. For example, the people in Luke 7:13-16 "remembered what Elisha had done for the Shunemite" (July 14) and the stew pot in 2 Kings 4:38 "became an illustration of the world, a 'stew' of humankind's ideas, religions, and attempts to satisfy their spiritual appetites (July 15). In the reading for February 26, Ms. Guthrie says:

"In her beauty, her purity, and her chosenness, Rebekah was a picture of the bride of Christ."

Furthermore, on October 15, Ms. Guthrie writes about the Ethiopian eunuch (of Acts 8) saying: "In a culture in which many descendants meant everything, this eunuch, who had no hope of a son who would carry on his name, understood that Jesus died without descendants so that he might give those who come to him by faith an everlasting heritage."

The problem is that none of these things are expressly stated or implied by other verses in Scripture. We simply have no way of confirming that any of these things are true. These are just a few examples of speculation in this book. I'm not sure if Ms. Guthrie gleaned these ideas from her sources or if she developed them independently as there are no footnotes or endnotes in the text. I truly wish I could recommend this resource as there are many good, Gospel-centered entries, however, it does not seem wise.

"Words in the Bible have a meaning fixed by the intention of God, expressed through the mind of the human authors. It cannot be made to mean what we choose without tampering with God's Word. But the atmosphere of our time puts so little premium on truth that the language of the Bible and of historical Christian documents has become a wax nose to shape according to the desires of the speaker" (pg 196, Think by John Piper).

Unfortunately, this is exactly what Ms. Guthrie does in many portions of this book. Therefore, I would not recommend this book.

* Many thanks to Tyndale House Publishers for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion!

5.0 out of 5 stars The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament 13 July 2011
By Ashhurst - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Nancy Guthrie has done a fine job in putting this together. I use this book as a track and every person I have given it to has come back and said how good it is. The church in American has become very weak in the Old Testament and this is a good book to start with.
It is a devotional book, one page per day and takes about 3 or 4 minutes to read but my wife and I do it together and spend a lot of time talking about.
It will drive to the bible to check out the context of the verses she uses.
This is one of the best books I have read and would encourage you to read it.
I have people who I gave this book to calling me and asking where can I buy some of these from.
I believe you will enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good companion to a daily Bible reading 29 Oct 2010
By Discovering Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The "One Year" devotionals are written for the busy person who wants to develop a daily habit of growing in their relationship with the Lord. This particular 365-day devotional is meant to take you through the Old Testament day by day, showing you the pictures that were meant to point us to Jesus Christ in the New Testament.

When I was given the opportunity to review this book, I jumped on it because I enjoy seeing the symbolism that represents Christ in the Old Testament. Some of the entries were of things I had already known, but there were plenty that were new to me.

The devotional is created in a way that you can simply start on any day of the year. The reading covers one page, and there is a brief written prayer at the bottom concerning the aspect of Christ that was focused on in the devotion. It would take someone about 5 minutes to sit and read the devotional for the day, thus meeting the criteria of fitting into a person's busy schedule.

The readings are sweet and something to carry in your thoughts through the day as you contemplate the character and work of the Lord Jesus. However, there is an aspect of the devotional that I was a little disappointed with. Although there are scripture references sprinkled throughout each devotion, including at least one scripture quoted within the text, I would expect there to be a main scripture reading provided at the heading of each day. There is not.

I would suggest using this devotional in addition to a daily Bible reading. I believe it would enhance a quiet time.

Overall I would give this book 4 stars for good content that's easy to understand and for its use as a wonderful companion to any daily quiet time.

I wish to thank Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with a free review copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book 5 July 2011
By Rosemary Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nancy Guthrie does it again. This time she has managed to write a one-year devotional, taking the Old Testament (starting with Genesis) and bringing in New Testament scripture each day that reinforces the stories of the Old. They go hand in hand - the Old & the New. Her work is a real blessing and inspiring.
