Review: Jesus on Every Page

I would love for David Murray to write a followup book to "Jesus on Every Page." Murray has done a fantastic job of giving the reader ways to find Jesus in the Old Testament, but I'd love to see him go beyond the general points and examples of "Jesus on Every Page" to provide more specific examples - a more exhaustive source - or perhaps an interactive study that gives the reader specific places to look. As for "Jesus on Every Page," Murray's point seems to be that the world was made through and for Jesus, meaning the Old Testament is more about Jesus than we'll ever know. Murray's more liberal stance of looking at the entirety of the Old Testament as a revelation of Jesus may bother some, and there were a few moments in his writing that required I read several times in order to full understand his points. But I made a lot of underlines in this book. It's definitely one I'll keep on my shelf for another visit in the future.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review of it.
