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.

About the Author:

Robert Letham (Ph.D., University of Aberdeen), formerly senior minister of Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, Wilmington, Delaware, teaches at Wales Evangelical School of Theology and continues as visiting professor of theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Washington, D.C., and adjunct professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. He is the author of a number of books, including The Work of Christ (InterVarsity Press, 1993), The Lord's Supper (2001) and The Holy Trinity (2004) (both Presbyterian & Reformed), and Through Western Eyes (Mentor, 2007).

Review:

"Letham has served the church well by assembling the various texts of Scripture, and by approaching them in faith he has gone a long way toward showing forth the inestimable greatness of our Savior. This book would serve those who are new to the faith as well as the mature in furthering their knowledge of the Redeemer." (New Horizons, May 2014)
