I can’t think of another OT seminary professor I’d rather team up with than Jason DeRouchie (pronounced deh-ROW-shee). He embodies Ezra 7:10. We spend about three hours together each week while commuting, and the better I get to know him the more I thank God for him.
Jason has been working on a 500-page book for about seven years, and it releases today:
Jason S. DeRouchie, ed. What the Old Testament Authors Really Cared About: A Survey of Jesus’ Bible. Grand Rapids: Kregel, 2013. 496 pp.
I love the subtitle.
 DeRouchie unapologetically explains that this is not a theology of the Hebrew Bible on its own but a Christian Old Testament survey. Now that we have the whole story, how can we not read the first part in light of the whole?  This clear and attractive book combines academic rigor with devotional warmth.  Each chapter is message-driven; it briefly addresses introductory matters such as authorship and date, but it is not preoccupied with them.  The authors have taught Old Testament courses many times, and they know how to connect with students.
