book review: Jesus on Every Page

Title: Jesus on Every Page: 10 Simple Ways to Seek and Find Christ in the Old Testament
Authors David Murray
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Year: 2013

David Murray's book "Jesus On Every Page" is an exploration of how we see Jesus in the Old Testament, without getting all weird. This is a book that looks at a subject that tends to be restricted to academia.

"Jesus On Every Page" is divided into two sections. The first part is told in a biographically fashion, taking us on his journey of seeing Jesus in the Old Testament. 

The second part of the book is an outline of 10 principles for seeing Jesus in the Old Testament. his approach is not simply "here are the references to Jesus in the OT" book, but here is "what you need to look for as you read, study, listen, and meditate on Scripture." I have never been a big alliteration person, so this section I found a little annoying. The other minor issue, is that it would have been nice to have the numerous scripture references as footnotes rather than endnotes.

If you buy Jesus on Every Page by 30 August, he offers some additional free resources on his web page.

Disclosure of Material Connection: 
I received an advanced reading copy from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
