The Latest from Planters Press

Have you ever had trouble understanding how the books of the Old Testament fit together?  You may be familiar with the traditional divisions of Law, History, Wisdom Literature, and Prophecy, but these are arranged largely by genre rather than by chronology.  Most Old Testament surveys, Bible handbooks, and commentaries treat the text in canonical order, making it difficult to see what fits where in terms of time sequence.  In order to remedy that difficulty, I have put together a book called The Road to Redemption – A Chronological Overview of the Old Testament.  It deals with the books in chronological order, weaving the non-historical books into the books of history in a way that helps the reader see where they fit.  It also emphasizes the ways in which the literature of the Old Testament presents God’s plan of redemption and points to the work of Christ.
