Reviews - What do customers think about We Have Heard That God Is with You: Preaching the Old Testament?

a great help for preachers  Mar 16, 2010
Too often, Christian preachers are limited in their preaching of the Old Testament. They either preach it in an exclusively Christological way, or they preach it purely in a historical way. Most often, preachers opt for the New Testament. Bos offers a way out of the dillema, developing a way for Christians to read the Old Testament on multiple levels. His approach is a balanced, affirming the abiding siginificance of the people Israel to Christian theology, but retaining a place for Christological approaches to the Old Testament.

Enriching more traditional models, Bos claims that the Old Testament can be preached on four levels: the sensus Israeliticus (the Israel-centered sense), the Christological, the ecclesiological, and the eschatological. He develops these categories based on the New Testament's use of the Old. Best of all, Bos gives examples of how to apply these senses to reading and preaching.

This is an excellent book. It is well-grounded in the Christian tradition, but also in important recent conversations (especially about supercessionism and related topics). Bos helps preachers read Scripture in a deeper way, which will hopefully help to enrich sermon content and help the church recapture the Old Testament as an abiding gift and not simply a preface to the New.
