Many Christians today experience Bible teaching in isolated, unconnected pieces, receiving little or no guidance into how these pieces form a coherent picture in Christ.
How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens
presents Christ as the central focus of each biblical book and the primary way the Bible relates to contemporary circumstances. Each book of the Bible has an identifiable theme ultimately fulfilled in the person and work of Christ.
Williams provides the following for his readers:
- A succinct statement of the theme of every biblical book
- An explanation of how that theme finds its focus in Christ
- A brief discussion of how the New Testament treats that theme as fulfilled in Christ
- Suggestions for contemporary implications
- Scripture memory electronic flashcards
- A convenient summary chart - an excellent tool for Bible teachers, ministry leaders, and students
By explaining each book’s theme and raising pertinent questions about the contemporary importance of that message, author Michael Williams sets readers on a path toward purposeful, independent reading and application of the entire Bible.
Michael Williams is Professor of Old Testament at Calvin Theological Seminary and a member of the NIV Committee on Bible Translation. He is the author of
Deception in Genesis
The Prophet and His Message
. His passion is to equip students with knowledge of the Old Testament and its languages so that they may grow in their comprehension and appreciation of redemptive history and be adequately prepared to promote and defend the faith through word and action. Michael resides in Grand Rapids, MI, with his wife, Dawn.
