Christian Faith in the Old Testament by Gareth Cockerill

I was sold a bill of goods. Well not really sold as I didn't purchase this book. But the title was a bit misleading.

This book should have been titled, A Brief Survey of the Old Testament. Cockerill fills the pages with PowerPoint-like charts and mind-numbing points.

I suppose this would be a nice book for a 101 course in a college; the information is what you would expect and basic, but for what I read in the title, it didn't meet expectations.

Thinking I would read how our Christian faith echoes the truth found in the Old Testament, all I found was paragraph summaries of the books.

I would recommend this book only for students jumping into Bible classes for the first time.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Thomas Nelson Publishing.

I review for BookLook Bloggers
