A Christian's Pocket Guide to Loving the Old Testament by Alec Motyer (Review)

A Christian's Pocket Guide to Loving The Old Testament: One Book, One God, One Story by Alec Motyer  (1924-2016) is a great book to see the unity between the Old and New Testament in the Bible. Obviously, the author knows what he is writing about. His commentary on Isaiah is one of the best. In these 130 pages, you will fly through some great material on how Jesus is predicted in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New.

Here is the review from Amazon:

Motyer is that rare scholar who can write plainly, say something quotable in a few words, and write sympathetically to ordinary folk. Who might benefit from this little book? My ninth-grade Bible students last year would have been much helped. This year's kids will thank me. It would make a nice study for a Sunday school class. Even the minister who has preached and taught through the Old Testament will enjoy the read and learn something, too. (New Horizons)

A Christian's Pocket Guide to Loving the Old Testament, and Alec Motyer's recent volume Preaching? prove that faithful believers 'will still bear fruit in old age-they will stay fresh and green.' (Ps. 92:14) Why? Because they will continue proclaiming, 'The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.' (Ps. 92:15) (Tim Keller ~ Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City, New York)

...it is a huge privilege to commend the author of the Pocket Guide you now hold in your hand- although, quite frankly, his work speaks for itself so well that it does not need me to approve it. (D. A. Carson ~ Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois)

Now 90, Alec Motyer retains all his old clarity, warmth and charm as he shares his infectious affection for, and insight into, Jesus's Bible. This is a first-rate get-you-started book. (J. I. Packer ~ Well known author & Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada)
