"Authors . . . work through the times and text of the Hebrew Scriptures to illuminate three major points:  1) The Old Testament is a rich source of theology and doctrine that is presupposed by the New Testament.  Without it, Christian theology would be seriously deficient.  2) Mastery of the Old Testament is crucial to an understanding of the New Testament.  3) The Old Testament offers, by teaching and example, practical principles of belief and behaviour for contemporary times.  Who God was and what He did then can be replicated in the lives of men and women today.. . . The book further shows how the Old Testament forms the basis from which sprang the life, ministry, and teachings of Jesus and the church."
