Philip Yancey has a way of confronting our most cherished--but misguided--notions about the Christian life. In The Bible Jesus Read, Yancey challenges the perception that the New Testament is more important than the Old, that the Hebrew Scriptures aren't worth the time they take to read and understand them. Writing as always with keen insight into the human condition and God’s provision for it, Yancey debunks this theory once and for all. Yes, he agrees, the Old Testament can be baffling, boring, and even offensive to the modern reader. But as he personally discovered, the Old Testament is full of rewards for the one who embraces its riches. With his candid, signature style, Yancey unfolds his interactions with the Old Testament from the perspective of his own deeply personal journey. From Moses, the amazing prince of Egypt, to the psalmists' turbulent emotions and the prophets' oddball rantings, Yancey paints a picture of Israel's God--and ours--that fills in the blanks of a solely New Testament vision of the Almighty. As he reconnects for us the strong, sinuous chords that bind the Old and New Testaments, Yancey reclaims the Reformers' deep sense of unity between the two. Most important, he says, reading the Scriptures that Jesus so revered gives believers a profound new understanding of Christ, the Cornerstone of the new covenant. "The more we comprehend the Old Testament," Yancey writes, "the more we comprehend Jesus."

After the destruction of the first temple in Jerusalem, the Jews were exiled to Babylon. Not only was there no longer a physical place to pray, even the sacred Scriptures were becoming scarce. Many of the biblical scrolls were lost or destroyed during the exile. In an attempt to preserve the Scriptures, the Rabbis divided up the biblical texts into weekly reading portions and distributed them among the families of Israel. Each was responsible for memorizing their assigned passage and then reading it in the synagogue every Sabbath. This system of reading is the basis for the story found in Luke 4:16-17: "He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read. The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him." This system is still in use today by Jews all over the world. In WHAT WOULD JESUS READ?, Joe Amaral gives modern day Christians the opportunity to follow and practice the same devotional system that Jesus used!

This is an historical account of the first Christian Bible, the Septuagint or LXX, meaning "Seventy." This is the Bible Jesus read. It was the only Bible in the Christian era, and it is the Holy Book that prophesied of the coming of Jesus. Jesus was named in The Law and the Prophets, as the LXX is called, as the successor of Moses and as the High Priest and Savior. The name Joshua did not not appear in the ancient Hebrew Scriptures or the Greek translation of these Scriptures. The translation of the LXX was made about 300 years before the birth of Jesus and was, in fact, totally accepted by the Israelites, Judeans, and Hebrews. Indeed, the LXX replaced the Hebrew scrolls so successfully and completely that the ancient scrolls fell into disuse. This is also the story of the men who defined Christian doctrine and ethics during the first 300 years following the crucifixion of Jesus. Their writings are quoted extensively in order that the reader may fully appreciate the depth of their dedication, devotion and intelligence. The writings of Origen, Clement of Alexandria, and Lactantius are quoted at length, and a full description of the beliefs of various Essene Sects is provided by Bishop Hippolytus (c. 170 AD), including those of the Pharisee and Sadducee. In this chapter on the Essene sects, there are quotations from those who have interpreted the Qumran Dead Sea scrolls. The relevance of these Dead Sea writings on early Christianity is made clear, especially as the writings pertain to the life of Jesus. This will give the reader a new perspective on this modern mystery. The reader will also learn of the political intrigues that plagued the Roman Empire during the 300 years before the Nicene Council. The scenes of persecution that took place in the arenas and stadiums are described by those early Christians who were eye witnesses to these events. And amid all the turmoil of the times, the Scriptures of the Septuagint and, later, of the New Testament were guarded and remained intact. The LXX was the basis of all doctrine because these early Fathers of the one Church knew that the Scriptures were Divine, and that the Word was God. The reader will also learn about today's scientists, astronomers, and archeologists who have provided indisputable evidence that the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is a correct and detailed history of the Hebrews as well as a history of the Christian era. The Star of Bethlehem was over the manger in 5 BC. This is an undisputed fact. Some of the travels of the Apostle Paul have been verified as to the time of year and season. Even a Biblical scholar will be amazed to learn that the writings of Luke are shown to be true right down to the least detail. And the accuracy of the Septuagint writings are also explored by science with astounding results. There is a reason why Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt. Most importantly, however, the reader will discover why the men and women of early Christianity willingly confessed the name of Jesus under all circumstances, and it wasn't because they were uneducated peasants. Just the opposite is true. The school of Christian teaching established by the Apostle Mark and Apollos in Alexandria, Egypt, was an intellectual center that has never been excelled or repeated. Even the monks of Mount Athos in Greece can't compete with the inspired teachers of Alexandria who formed the doctrine from the sacred Scriptures of the LXX.This book is an acknowledgement of the work of these distinguished men who were intelligent, loyal, kind, and good with the reason and logic that surpassed that of a Plato or Aristotle. The reader will also learn about the earliest Bibles, including current translations of the Septuagint that delete references to the name of Jesus and change or delete prophecies that pertain to Jesus. This bookis a journey of discovery that is fundamental to a real understanding of Christianity, not just then, but now.

Walking in the Way is the second book in a series of Old Testament devotions written to help readers gain exposure to the Old Testament, including some of the more difficult and obscure sections. The first book is entitled Ancient Paths: Light and Life from the Scriptures Jesus Read. This second volume is similar in theme but covers all 39 books from the Old Testament with the goal of whetting the appetite for more.Naturally, you might still be wondering, "Why the Old Testament?" The main reason is that the Old Testament points to Jesus and is only understood in the light of Jesus. Not only is Jesus predicted and promised, but the story of God's people reveals their desperate need for a Savior - and ours! Related to that, the Old Testament is as much the Word of God as the New Testament. The Bible that Jesus and all of the New Testament writers read was the Old Testament. Our understanding of the New Testament is deeper and richer through the study of the Old. Those who set their minds and hearts to read and study the Old Testament have come to love it. We read and study the Old Testament because these books are powerful, relevant and life changing. The title for this devotional book is Walking in the Way, which comes from Isaiah 30:20-21, "And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, 'This is the way, walk in it,' when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left." When we spend time in God's Word, we learn to hear His voice as He leads us in the way we should go. The Holy Spirit can speak to us without a chapter and verse from Scripture, but we will find that He often reveals His will and His heart to us as we spend time reading and savoring His Word.

Time, time, time. In this fast moving world of modern, ever changing technology we all struggle with time to do the things we know we need to do. One of those "need to" disciplines is the daily reading of God's Word in a way that is life-changing and mind renewing. When Bernd Weimer told me that he was going to write a book on how to systematically read and study the entire Bible in a year, it was all I could do to keep from saying "Oh no, not another read-the-Bible-in-a-year book." Although I was inwardly skeptical, I encouraged him as he started the project. There were so many books already written from a Bible devotional nature that Bernd's book would have to be very unique to be accepted and widely used. But Bernd has pulled it off. He has developed a method whereby the reader can work his or her way through the Word of God without guilt of failure. This book is more than just a Bible reading plan. When used, this book can become a lifelong journal filled with your impressions from the Lord, special quotes from people that have touched your heart and spirit, and your own personal Bible study notes. To the casual reader, this book will be impressive because of its sheer simplicity, and yet many will be astonished by the book's depth of allowing the reader to make it his or her own life history with the Lord. It is a single, bright sword, cut across three different books in one: a Bible reading guide, a person journal, and a Biblical insight on key passages.

Reading the Bible Badly exposes how American Christians misunderstand and misuse the Bible, reading Scripture through "lenses" that distort its true character. As Americans, we often read the Bible's stories and instruction unmindful of their historical and cultural settings, disregarding the testimony of our spiritual ancestors, and finding mostly a mirror image of our own values and selves in Scripture. Some of us insist that the Bible must be the "inerrant word of God," historically factual in every way and doctrinally infallible, and overlook so much of what makes Scripture beautiful and relevant. Others follow a lectionary that dices and splices Scripture into bite-size morsels for Sunday worship, divorces passages from their biblical settings, strikes verses deemed offensive, and undermines the literary artistry that is the lifeblood of Scripture's profound revelation. Many of us read the Bible in fear, warping our witness to Jesus and tragically neglecting Scripture's ever-persistent call to compassion, hospitality, and love. We come to the Bible looking for simple rules that affirm our sense of right and wrong, while missing the point of what Jesus taught about wisdom and true righteousness. Reading the Bible Badly challenges Christians to set aside their misaligned lenses, that they may encounter the Bible more fully and faithfully.

The Old Testament is the collection of books that forms the first of the two-part Christian Biblical canon. All the books of western canons of the Old Testament are found in the Septuagint, although the order does not always coincide with the modern ordering of the books. The Old Testament is God's biography, the story of his passionate encounters with people. It is also a prequel to the story of Jesus, who came to answer the questions that troubled the ancient writers and still trouble us today. For expressing our deepest longings and voicing our whole range of our lives and emotions, the Old Testament has no equal. - Philip Yancey in The Bible Jesus Read.

When Dan Kimball first sat down to meet with a student who was disillusioned by Christianity, he wasn't ready for what he was about to hear. The student had a positive church experience. He was grateful for his youth leader. But he had serious objections to Christianity. Why? He had begun studying the Bible and found he could no longer accept what it taught. Reading the Bible had led him to become an atheist. In How (Not) to Read the Bible, pastor and bestselling author Dan Kimball tackles one of the most pressing apologetic challenges of the twenty-first-century church--how do we read and interpret the Bible? Kimball introduces several critical principles to utilize when you open a Bible or read a verse. Then, he looks at five of the most common challenges that arise when people read the Bible today, including: the relationship between science and the Bible, the violence we find in the Bible, the treatment of women in the Bible, the odd and strange commands we find in the Bible, and the Bible's controversial claim that there is only one way to know God. Kimball highlights several of the most common passages people find objectionable and shows readers how to correctly interpret them. This is an ideal book for those exploring Christianity or new to the faith, as well as Christians who are wrestling with questions about these difficult issues and the challenges of interpreting the Bible. Filled with stories and examples, as well as visual illustrations and memes reflecting popular cultural objections, How (Not) to Read the Bible will motivate readers who are confused or discouraged by questions they have about the Bible and guides them--step-by-step--to a clear understanding of what the Bible is saying in context. The book can also be taught as a six-week sermon series or used in small groups for study and discussion.
