Передня обкладинка
Crossway, 2006 - 959 стор.

The Old Testament is the story of GodÕs promises to his people. Below its somewhat obscure surface is hidden magnificent truth about the love and power of God. Throughout its pages the reader can find promise after promise from God, all of which are fulfilled in the New TestamentÑin the incarnation of Jesus Christ.

Author Mark Dever introduces readers to the Old Testament as a glorious whole so that they are able to see the big picture of the majesty of God and the wonder of his promises.

ÒFor many Christians the Old Testament is daunting and confusing. The books are long and speak about a culture dramatically different from ours. Mark DeverÕs sermons do not substitute for reading the Old Testament, but they do provide a wonderful help in understanding it. Dever unpacks the major themes of each book with remarkable clarity, and the book also shines in conveying the message of the Old Testament for today. Here is a survey to the Old Testament that is accessible and spiritually edifying.Ó

ÒTo hear the Bible tell its own story in its own wayÑthis is the obvious but all-too-rare strategy for reading the Book of books. I thank Dr. Mark Dever for showing us how. We are immeasurably enriched.Ó
ÑRay Ortlund, Jr.
Senior Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church, Nashville

ÒThis is a bold project, some might say foolhardy, but Mark Dever has brilliantly succeeded. This is no mere textbook; it is powerful preaching. We are not only introduced to the sweep and message of each book of the Bible but, above all, confronted by our great God and called to obey his living word.Ó
ÑVaughn Roberts
Rector, St. EbbeÕs Church, Oxford, England, Author of GodÕs Big Picture

ÒIn these distinctive overview sermons, Mark Dever manages to bring together around the core issues of each biblical book three concerns that ought to occupy every faithful preacher of GodÕs Word: theological content, exegetical wisdom, and pastoral application. Here is a walk through the Bible that is well worth taking!Ó
ÑTimothy George
Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Executive Editor, Christianity Today

ÒMark Dever has done the Christian community a great service in publishing these sermons. The material is academically informed but presented in a very accessible way with relevant application. With its Christological focus and careful Christian application of the Old Testament, this book enables readers to get into the theological heart of the message of each biblical book.Ó
ÑDavid Peterson
Principal, Oak Hill College

ÒMark Dever has written a needed book and written it well. With a pastorÕs heart, a scholarÕs mind, and the intimacy of a friend, Dever introduces the reader clearly and creatively to a book that has changed the world but to which contemporary culture remains largely unexposed. This book is warm, engaging, straightforward, and profound. It will be a valuable resource for individuals, study groups, churches, unbelievers and believers alike. Dever takes the reader on an unforgettable journey into the most remarkable and moving book ever written.Ó
ÑJohn Shouse
Professor of Christian Theology, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary

ÒThis is a good book, written by a pastor/scholar for people in the pew. Clear, concise, thoroughly readable. Buy two and give one to a friend.Ó
ÑAlistair Begg
Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

ÒI have long desired a book that would unlock the richness of the Old TestamentÑassisting both the pastor in the pulpit and Christians in their devotions. This is that book.Ó
