Many Christians today experience Bible teaching in isolated, unconnected pieces, receiving little or no guidance into how these pieces form a coherent picture in Christ. How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens presents Christ as the central focus of each biblical book and the primary way the Bible relates to contemporary circumstances. Each book of the Bible has an identifiable theme ultimately fulfilled in the person and work of Christ. Williams provides the following for his readers:
- Succinct statement of the theme of every biblical book
- An explanation of how that theme finds its focus in Christ
- A brief discussion of how the New Testament treats that theme as fulfilled in Christ
- Suggestions for contemporary implications
- Scripture memory electronic flashcards
- A convenient summary chart.

An excellent tool for Bible teachers, ministry leaders, and students, How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens facilitates other Christian disciplines such as Bible reading, Scripture memory and evangelism. By demonstrating how each theme relates to living the Christian life, this book promises to be an invaluable guide for reading and understanding the Bible.



- Publisher How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens connects each of the sixty-six books of the Bible to the person and work of Jesus Christ. By explaining each book's theme and raising pertinent questions about the contemporary importance of that message, author Michael Williams sets readers on a path toward purposeful, independent reading and application of the entire Bible.

Excellent
5 stars By Dan, Jan 18 2014
How to read the Bible through the Jesus lens explains how to do exactly that.  Williams systematically works through all 66 books of the Bible, first providing a helpful summary of the contents of the book and its context.  He then demonstrates how every book in the Bible points to Jesus, and how the scriptures revolve around him in both the Old Testament and New.  If you're not familiar with Biblical Theology, then this book is also helpful to show the Bible is one continuous message of God's salvation plan through Jesus from Genesis to Revelation
