From the Back Cover

“Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:27
Wouldn’t you have loved to be part of that conversation with Jesus? As he walked with two of his followers on the road to Emmaus, what Scriptures did he point to and say, “This is about me”? Which events, symbols, and people did he identify as foreshadowing his life, death, and resurrection?
The entire Old Testament tells a story that only finds its completion in Jesus Christ. In The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament, Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie takes readers from Genesis through Malachi, shining the light on how the Old Testament points to Christ: he’s the offspring of Eve who put an end to the curse of sin; he’s the Son offered up as a sacrifice by his father; he is the true Temple where people can meet with God; he is the Suffering Servant Isaiah wrote about and the King whose throne will last forever―and so much more. Day by day throughout the year, readers will see the beauty of Christ in fresh, new ways, creating a deeper understanding and appreciation for who Jesus is, what he accomplished, and what is ahead for all who love him.

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!

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.

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.
