Book Review: Jesus On Every Page

Jesus On Every Page helps us see that the whole Bible, from start to finish, reveals Jesus. The New Testament itself insists that the Old Testament was all about Jesus. David Murray provides helpful guidance for those who seek to read the Scriptures faithfully and typologically. Each chapter includes study questions.

This book is written for a popular audience. You won’t be befuddled by obscure vocabulary or material that depends on extensive prior knowledge in order to be understood. Even though I can’t affirm all that Murray says, what he does say tends to be basic enough that most Christians will take no issue with it.  Most of my criticisms are on the nitpicky side. Overall, this book is a good introduction to an important subject. 

Thanks to Thomas Nelson publishers for the review copy.
