"Superb overview of the Old Testament"
Something about this book keeps me returning to it time and again when I want to fill a spare half hour or so. That's certainly rare for an audio book, but it has a permanent place on my MP3 player. I particularly like Yancey as the narrator; though he's not super-polished, he provides a very comfortable and engaging narration. He is just a superb author and this book gave me a much deeper understanding of the Old Testament. I would love to see Audible carry the unabridged version.
"Loved this book -- made me thirsty for some OT"
Yeah, the old testament is hard sometimes. But, getting a little background sure helps. Finding out that what I was taught in Sunday School at 10 about the old testament is not enough for a 40+ modern mind should not have been a surprise. God really wants to have personal relationship with people -- that's what the author of this book wants to say, and I'm convinced that the authors of the old testament would agree.
"Wonderful interpretation of Old Testament books"
It is challenging reading the Old Testament but I know it is important to read in order to understand the New Testament. The overview in this book was definitely enlightening. Philip Yancey's voice was clear and very comforting. I thoroughly enjoyed The Bible Jesus Read.
"Excellent book with exceptional narration."
Loved it. Excellent narration by the author. Kept me glued from the beginning to the end.
"The title is misleading?"
This is like cliff notes for the old testament. If you want a quick summary of parts of the old testament then this is OK. He talks alot about the complaining of the Jews and sounds sarcastic when read alot of the scriptures. It does not give you any thoughts on what Jesus got out of the old testament and why he preached the way he did.
I really liked this book, I wish to find more like it, it was amazing
