In a series of in-depth interviews and explanations, award-winning author, Philip Yancey, covers five crucial segments of the Old Testament. The Bible Jesus Read, an eight-session, video-based study, approaches each of these major segments from a different point of view. Many Christians tend to ignore the Old Testament or dismiss it as impenetrable and obscure. Philip Yancey's combination of scholarship and insight brings new light to old material and stimulates new discussion, thought, and further study.
