Michael Bird on The Jesus Lens
“This is a charming little book that gives an overview of every book of the Bible and how it relates to Jesus…
I wish all students would read a book like this before they came to Seminary since ignorance of the biblical story line, esp. the OT, is a huge problem we have to deal with in NT Intro classes. I particularly liked the chapters on Exodus (Deliverance into Presence), Daniel (Cosmic Authority), Ephesians (Shalom), and Revelation (Ultimate Victory).
It is written at the perfect level for an overview of the Bible for lay people and above all it is a good reminder that both the Old and New Testaments are Christian Scripture.”
