Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Theology) From the earliest pages of the Old Testament, the person of Jesus Christ is the key to the biblical story of God's unfolding plan to glorify himself in the salvation of the human race from sin, misery and death. As the plot gathers pace, the picture comes into greater focus, until eventually all points to one person. He is identified by angels, by John the Baptist, by the apostles and above all by his incarnation, life and works, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension. He is Jesus Christ, the Deliverer and Savior foretold and promised throughout. Robert Letham's purpose is to show how the Bible, progressively and in ever-greater detail, speaks to us of its central figure, Jesus Christ. With clarity and conviction, he expounds a range of key Old and New Testament texts from Genesis to Revelation and investigates the main scriptural themes, focusing on the narrative that traces the emergence of God's plan. In doing so, he stands with the Christian church down the ages in affirming that this is the key to understanding what the Bible, in its essential unity, is all about."
