The title, Old Testament, creates difficulties of its own. If it is Old and we are people of the New, surely we may properly let it fade away into history? Besides, it seems very unlike the New Testament, even contradictory: all those wars when Jesus is the Prince of peace; all those commandments to obey when we are not under law but under grace. And can the God of the Old Testament be a God of love like the Father, Son and Holy Spirit These are the questions that Alec Motyer, a life long lover of the Old Testament, seeks to answer starting with the conviction that Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament Scripture. The Story of the Old Testament is for the Christian who wants to know what the Old Testament has to do with the New Testament and why the Christian should read it. A comprehensive survey of the Old Testament organised around its authors and major characters, the theme of The Story of the Old Testament is that the Holy Spirit chose, fashioned and equipped the biblical authors to convey distinctive truths through each of them.
