Excerpt:

Many Bible readers find the Old Testament daunting. Its themes seem distant from their present-day lives, the language is hard to understand, and the events all predate Jesus's earthly ministry. But if they look at it correctly, they will find that the Old Testament still speaks today. Pastor and theologian Alec Motyer introduces six key themes—history, religion, worship, prophecy, wisdom, and theology—to help readers explore the Old Testament for themselves. After each theme's overview, six guided readings trace the themes throughout the Old Testament. An appendix that includes an additional four weeks of readings for every chapter helps readers digs even deeper into each theme. This fresh approach to reading the Old Testament uncovers the riches and relevance it has for today.

6 Ways the Old Testament Speaks Today: An Interactive Guide
By Alec Motyer

What does the Old Testament have to do with us today?

To many of us, the Old Testament can seem distant, foreign, and confusing, with difficult language and events disconnected from our present-day lives. But with a little guidance, it is quickly evident that the Old Testament still speaks today.

In this engaging book, late pastor-theologian Alec Motyer leads us to discover the everyday significance of six key themes that resonate throughout the Old Testament: history, religion, worship, prophecy, wisdom, and theology. Each chapter focuses on one theme, featuring a week’s worth of Scripture readings paired with accessible commentary on the biblical text. Clear, accessible, and warmly pastoral, this book will help you see what this collection of ancient texts from the past has to do with our day-to-day lives in the present.
