Editorial Reviews

Review

“In an age where too many ‘Bible’ studies fail to open the Bible—or, if opened, fail to touch on the actual themes in the text itself—Nancy Guthrie immerses us in the wisdom of the Word. How refreshing! With her keen observations, penetrating applications, and thoughtful, engaging questions, Nancy Guthrie’s latest study on the Old Testament Wisdom Books and the Psalms gets us to see and smell, taste and touch, and understand and apply the everyday wisdom of Christ—our creator and crucified Lord.”
Douglas Sean O'DonnellSenior Lecturer in Biblical Studies and Practical Theology, Queensland Theological College; author, The Beginning and End of Wisdom

“I love Nancy’s infectious passion for teaching the Old Testament in a relevant, practical, spiritual, and Christ-centered way. I’m confident that this book will ignite that same passion in many others—transforming lives, families, churches, and communities.”
David P. Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

“In this study guide, Nancy Guthrie shows how the Old Testament Wisdom Books and the Psalms provide practical life lessons for Christians and stand as pointers to the supreme wisdom of God in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. With great skill she leads the reader to the heart of each book being studied, and demonstrates its place in Scripture as a testimony to Christ. Christian readers are encouraged to read the Old Testament Wisdom Literature in light of the relationship we have with Christ, who is the power and wisdom of God.”
Graeme Goldsworthy, Former Lecturer in Old Testament, Biblical Theology, and Hermeneutics, Moore Theological College

About the Author

Nancy Guthrie teaches the Bible at conferences around the country. She and her husband, David, are the co-hosts of the GriefShare video series used in more than 8,500 churches nationwide and they also host Respite Retreats for couples who have experienced the death of a child. Guthrie is the author of numerous books including Holding on to HopeHearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow, and the five-book Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series.


More About the Author

"God has been preparing me my whole life for teaching his Word," says Nancy Guthrie. "He has blessed me with so many sound Bible teachers to sit under--from my days as a college student in Bible classes, to terrific Bible Study Fellowship leaders, gifted pastors -- as well as several teachers like Tim Keller and John Piper that I listen to almost daily on my ipod."

Nancy's life experience--dealing with the loss of two of her children--has signi???cantly affected her teaching substance and style. "I've had to dig into God's Word in search of answers to hard questions about how he works, and I ???nd that my listeners usually have the same struggles and questions. And while I openly share the deep hurts in my life, I also like to laugh. People who hear me teach say that I'm very real, and that is certainly what I want to be." "To me, God's Word is a treasure to be mined," Nancy says. "The deeper I go in it, the more I see its wisdom, the more it authenticates itself, the more it reveals to me the amazing mystery of God."

Nancy is the author of six books including Holding on to Hope, The One Year Book of Hope, Hoping for Something Better, Dinner Table Devotions, Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow, and When Your Family's Lost a Loved One (co-written with her husband, David). She is also the editor of several anthologies published by Crossway, collections of great writing by noted classic and contemporary Bible teachers and theologians including Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross, Be Still My Soul, and O Love That Will Not Let Me Go.

She is currently working on another book for Tyndale's One Year line that will be One Year of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament.

Nancy and her husband David live in Nashville, Tennessee while their son, Matt is off to Western Kentucky University.In addition to teaching opportunities at her church, Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Nancy speaks regularly at conferences and events around the country such as the Ravi Zacharias International Ministries Conference, The Brooklyn Tabernacle, Second Baptist Church of Houston, Taylor University, Covenant College, and in countries including Scotland and Colombia.

Format: Paperback
One of the most exciting things about living in the times in which we are living is the anticipation of the return of Christ and the ushering in of His kingdom. Along with this prophetic reality is the intensification of our study of God's Word to look for Christ from Genesis to Revelation. According to the author this study is "uniquely designed to help you look into the wonder of the wisdom literature of the Old Testament (covering 10 weeks of studies in Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon) and see how it prepares us for and points us toward Christ.

This book will help you:

(1) Learn how to study the Bible inductively (each chapter contains questions for personal Bible study);

(2) Understand the Bible and how the different books of the Bible fit together as a whole (each lesson contains a teaching chapter on the core truths of the Biblical Book being studied);

(3) Interact with the central truths of each Wisdom Literature Book and how they relate to the whole Bible (each chapter has a discussion starter and a dozen or so questions of exposition based on the passage of study;

(4) Apply the relevant applications from each passage in your life (each chapter has one or more questions to put the passage into action in one's life);

(5) Love and worship Jesus Christ (each lesson is loaded with cross references, charts, discussion, and a "Looking Forward" section highlighting Jesus as the central figure, hero, and theme of each passage of study and of the entire Scriptures).

I don't know of a small group study guide out there today that has more depth, more of Jesus, is more fun to study and discuss than this new study by Nancy Guthrie.

Format: Paperback
I often wonder what it would have been like to be on Emmaus Road with Jesus after his resurrection. While two men were walking and talking together, Jesus just showed up. He began to talk to them, and Luke eventually ended up saying, "And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself." Jesus is exegeting the Old Testament, and the interpretive key is Himself. What did He say to them? Where can we find Jesus in the Old Testament? These are questions that I ask myself. Thankfully, these are questions that Nancy Guthrie has not only asked but also spent time studying. The fruit of this study is her Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible Studies. The Wisdom of God: Seeing Jesus in the Psalms and Wisdom Books is her second book in the series. In this edition, Guthrie takes the readers through the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon.

How the book is formatted

The book itself is intended to be a 10 week Bible study that can be used in personal or group settings. Each week, Guthrie invites the reader into a time of personal Bible study, a teaching chapter, a looking forward segment and finally a discussion guide. I enjoyed this format. In the personal Bible study section, Guthrie usually introduced the reader to the genre of the book along with some key themes and passages. This section is very interactive and really sets up the remaining sections to come. In the teaching section, Guthrie provides insight in a practical and Christ-centered way. I can remember numerous times reading the teaching on Job, Psalms, or Proverbs and asking myself how I never saw that before. At the end of the teaching section is the looking forward section.

The Wisdom of God has been such a blessing to me. I'm only on week 3 right now, but I've been able to use the first two chapters to be encouraged and to encourage others. It digs so deep into Job and Psalms. I'm very excited to finish the book and learn more about the power of God's Word in the Wisdom Books!!!

Nancy Guthrie's Bible studies are wonderful. I read this title and also worked through, " The Lamb of God." The author write with clarity and provides in-depth questions that help the reader to think about how God's plan of salvation through Jesus Christ is woven through out scripture, starting in the Old Testament.
