As part of a new initiative at LifeWay, I’m working on a comprehensive list of pastoral resources—commentaries, books, preaching manuals, ministry tips, etc. I’ve got a list already started but thought it would be best to open it up to the Interwebs to get more.
How do the Hebrew law, writings, and prophets tell of the coming Messiah? Christopher Wright shows through his work, Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament, that the Hebrew Old Testament tells the story which Jesus completes.
One of my favorite new authors, Jonathan Dodson, recently released a new book entitled Unbelievable Gospel. Besides having a great first name, he is a fantastic writer. His first book, Gospel-Centered Discipleship, was one of my favorites from 2012. When I read the introduction to Unbelievable Gospel, I was hooked. It’s a short book (only 80 pages) and cheap as well (you can get it on Amazon for just $8) and I highly recommend it. Anyway, here is the intro. When you finish reading this, go buy the book and put some food on his table.
