Item description for To Understand the Bible Look for Jesus: The Bible Student's Guide to the Bible's Central Theme by Norman L. Geisler...
Synopsis: Believing the fundamental Christian claim that the purpose of the Bible is to present the Savior, Geisler focuses on Christ as the unity and unfolding message of the whole of Scripture. Christ is the tie between the Testaments, the content of the canon, and the unifying theme within each book of the Bible. This book is basic to both Bible study and preaching and serves as an excellent guide to the Bible's central theme. It encompasses far more than a study of types and the Old Testament prophecies. Each chapter takes seriously the affirmation of Jesus: "Everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms must be fulfilled" (Luke 24:44). Related to Geisler's central thrust - that Christ is the clue to the whole Bible - is the clear assertion concerning the inspiration of Scripture and the deity of Christ. Chapter topics include: (1) Christ Is the Key to the Bible; (2) Christ in the Old Testament; (3) Christ in Both Testaments; (4) Christ in Every Section of the Bible; (5) Christ in Each Book of the Bible; (6) The Word of God; Personal and Propositional. Also included are a bibliography, subject index, and Scripture index. Author Biography: Dr. Norman Geisler is author or coauthor of some fifty books and hundreds of articles.

Reviews - What do customers think about To Understand the Bible Look for Jesus: The Bible Student's Guide to the Bible's Central Theme?
Basic Apr 11, 2008
This book is a basic, look at Jesus as the central theme of the bible. It give Scriptures that shows Jesus, quoting from the book of Isaiah. showing that there was only one Isaiah, not two as Bible critics say. Jesus call Danial a prophet, Bible critics, say his prophecies were just historical writings, because he wrote them after the fact. it shows the themes of different book. This is a good book for new students of the Bible.
The reason I only gave it 4 stars, is it seem to be repetitious at times. But over all, it's a good book for Bible students looking for an introduction to the over all theme and unity of the Bible.
