Some Christians find the Old Testament intimidating and irrelevant today because we are under a new and better covenant. In this book, Michael P. V. Barrett demonstrates how vitally important the Old Testament is. Instead of giving a systematic apology for the Old Testament, Barrett simply serves up fifty-two meditations on various passages, allowing us to taste and see how good the Old Testament is in light of Christ’s coming. You will learn how the Old Testament shows us God’s concern for true and spiritual worship, teaches us lessons in the life of faith, and reveals to us the glory of our Redeemer. A real feast for the soul!

Michael P. V. Barrett is vice president for academic affairs, academic dean, and professor of Old Testament at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan.



“Michael Barrett has once again provided the church with an outstanding resource to help believers read the Old Testament for what it is—Christian Scripture. In fifty-two brief chapters, he surveys the revelation of the gospel from the first promise of a Redeemer in Genesis 3 to the proclamation of Messiah’s glory by the prophets. These pages provide the reader with theology that is both biblical and accessible. Discover in these pages the witness of the Old Testament to Jesus Christ, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption. Discover here wisdom for life!” — Rhett P. Dodson, senior pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church, Hudson, Ohio
