Severe Compassion (GAOT Series): The Gospel According to Nahum / January 01, 2016
Requires Accordance 11.2 or higher.
Gregory Cook helps us to navigate the book of Nahum, a poetic masterpiece that teaches us about God’s love for his adulterous people. As the prophet Nahum shows us, God’s passionate love threatens all our other loves. When we find God boring and the world fascinating, we commit the sin of rebellion—but God, with severe compassion, refuses to abandon us when we stray into destructive paths. Ultimately, Nahum’s prophecy is fulfilled in Christ, who relentlessly pursued his people and entered history in order to redeem them for himself. Cook further aids our understanding with historical background, cultural references, literary allusions, poetic devices, and challenging application.
About the Series:
The Gospel According to the Old Testament series illuminates the good news of our Savior in the Old Testament books. Here you will find thoughtful, Christ-focused theology at an accessible level. This series aims to show, as Christ himself declared, that “all the Scriptures” speak of our Lord’s suffering and glorification.
From the Foreword:
“The Gospel According to the Old Testament Series is committed to the proposition that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is a unified revelation of God, and that its thematic unity is found in Christ. The individual books of the Old Testament exhibit diverse genres, styles, and individual theologies, but tying them all together is the constant foreshadowing of, and pointing forward to, Christ. Believing in the fundamentally Christocentric nature of the Old Testament, as well as the New Testament, we offer this series of studies in the Old Testament with the following aims:
- to lay out the pervasiveness of the revelation of Christ in the Old Testament
- to promote a Christ-centered reading of the Old Testament
- to encourage Christ-centered preaching and teaching from the Old Testament
To this end, the volumes in this series are written for pastors and laypeople, not scholars.”
