Helps LDS readers understand the OT20 Dec. 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
I had just reached a personal goal and finished the New Testament. Being pretty proud of my accomplishment I thought, "I should try the Old Testament". I admit that the Old Testament scares me. It is big, it is intimidating, and it is filled with stuff that I don't understand. So, when I got the chance to review The Old Testament Explained Through Modern Revelation I jumped at the chance. Here is my confession. It has been slow going...really slow. So, obviously I haven't finished The Old Testament Explained because I'm using it along with my OT reading. I've liked what I've read though. Barker says, "The goal of the book is to provide a renewed appreciation for the Old Testament, modern scripture, and in-tuned Church leaders who can state, "Thus saith the Lord..." I can't honestly say I've got that appreciation yet, but I just started, and I'm hopeful that by the end I will have gained it :)
Barker also says in the book, "Our attitude, therefore toward the Scriptures should be in harmony with the purposes for which they were written." I love this statement.
I've found through my studies that this book isn't a study guide like I need. I need more in depth explanations about certain things. It's more of a supplement to another study guide, but I love how he uses quotes from Prophets and Apostles. That more than anything is super helpful to me as I try to figure out how to use the Old Testament in my everyday life.
