Book Review: Christian Faith in the Old Testament

Book The bible of the Apostles
Christian Faith in the Old Testament
The Bible of the Apostles
By Gareth Lee Cockerill

Sometimes it's easy to view the Old Testament as difficult to apply to our day-to-day lives. As contemporary Christians, we may even wonder how the apostolic truths came out of the Old Testament. Christian Faith in the Old Testament helps us complete this daunting task with ease. In this in intriguing and informative study, Gareth Lee Cockerill helps us view the New Testament as a fulfillment of the Old Testament, giving us a broad perspective on Scripture as a whole. In language that is easily accessible to the layperson Gareth explores the role of each major part of the Old Testament Canon and what part each plays in the total scope of biblical revelation. Additionally, Christian Faith in the Old Testament offers important guidance to Contemporary believers about how each part of the Old Testament Canon applies today. This book is the perfect choice for intelligent modern Christians looking to discover the source of apostolic truth in the Old Testament. 

I have to say that there are a few things that I'm not a fan of with this book. The first and really the main problem I have is that it does come across as a little bit pompous, that aside though its a very good theological type of book. Although I like to make comparisons between books that I've read, I can't say that I have read one as deep as the Christian Faith in the Old Testament book. It goes into such detail and such analysis of the Bible on a high level. Its a great book, if you're really curious about furthering your faith. Also if you liked When We Were on Fire or Just Jesus, I think you'd be interested in reading through this book.
