Endorsements for The Promised One

The perfect blend of biblical scholarship and heartfelt passion, Guthrie guides us through Genesis, helping us discover for ourselves God’s magnificent plan of redemption. Her steps are sure, and her grasp of the Scriptures is breathtaking. Above all, God’s unfailing love, grace, and sovereignty shine forth from every page. A brilliant start to a very promising series.”
Liz Curtis Higgs, New York Times best-selling author, Mine is the Night and Bad Girls of the Bible

The Bible is a book about Jesus. The disciples walking to Emmaus after the resurrection discovered this as Christ himself walked along with them and explained how the Old Testament pointed to the Savior. This book is the first in an important series by Nancy Guthrie and it spotlights how Jesus can be seen in the book of Genesis. I recommend this—and the entire series—to you.”
Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

It’s not hyperbole to say, ‘It’s about time.’ While there are good books out there telling pastors how to preach Christ from all the Scriptures, there have been very few Bible studies for laypeople—especially for women—along these lines. Nancy Guthrie does an amazing job of helping us to fit the pieces of the biblical puzzle together, with Christ at the center.”
Michael S. Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

Every leader of small group ministries knows the difficult task of finding good material—material that causes participants to think carefully while striking a chord in the heart; material that challenges the mature Christian, while gently leading those younger in the faith into deeper truths; material that digs into the Bible and applies its treasures to our everyday lives. The Promised One manages to do it all! A meaningful, 10-week Bible study with thought-provoking questions and solid teaching, and a peek at what is still to come. I am delighted to offer this to the women in my church and look forward to the remaining books in this series.”
Jean Bronson, Director of Women’s Ministries, Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church, St. Louis, Missouri

Do you ever wish you could have listened to the conversation Jesus had with his friends on the road to Emmaus? Luke tells us that Jesus started with Moses and walked his way through the Bible and explained to them the things concerning himself in all the Scriptures. Nancy has done us all a great service by carefully and precisely unpacking the teachings regarding our Savior in the Old Testament. My experience with this book has been rich and has deepened my love for the Word and for Jesus. I am in debt to my sister for this treasure of a study!”

Endorsements for The Lamb of God

Nancy Guthrie has made the Old Testament come alive again. She connects the gospel dots from the Old Testament to the New, showing us the shadow and then the reality of Jesus Christ, who was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. More than once I saw Jesus in a new and remarkably beautiful way. This study has grown my love for our Savior.”
Jessica Thompson, coauthor, Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus

User-friendly, biblically reliable, theologically astute, enthusiastically sensible, encouragingly realistic, and deeply Christ-centered—all without losing sight of the fact that the Bible student is to be a disciplined ‘workman (or woman) who does not need to be ashamed.’ Once again we are deeply indebted to Nancy Guthrie for giving the church an outstanding Bible study resource to help us all grow in the grace, knowledge, and wisdom of God.”
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

As the title says, this book—and the entire series—is about Jesus. Instead of simply telling the stories of the Old Testament and teaching us how to be a better, more successful person, The Lamb of God points us over and over to the one who did it all for us. How refreshing and inspiring to bask in my Savior’s love for me—to be loved and accepted because of what Christ has done and not because of what I have done. Nancy’s exhaustive research, her facility in writing, and her thought-provoking questions make these studies both challenging and enjoyable. I cannot wait to lead the women in my group through each of her studies!”
Maureen Kyle, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

As a children’s ministry director who teaches a young women’s Bible study, I love the fact that Nancy teaches in adult language and application what we seek to teach our children—that even in the Old Testament stories we see how Jesus has been in the process of redeeming us. Nancy is a master storyteller and teacher who consistently helps us see the redemptive truth of Scripture and apply that truth where we live in the real moments of everyday life.”
Sherry Kendrick, Children’s Ministry Director, Covenant Church of Naples, Naples, Florida

Endorsements for The Son of David

The Son of David is a book about Jesus. Nancy takes the reader through the plotline of redemption revealed in the historical narratives. All of the heroic figures in the Old Testament were mere pointers to the greater Savior, Redeemer, Shepherd, and King who was to come, namely, Jesus. This book argues very convincingly that all of the wonderful promises presented in shadow form have found their ultimate completion in the one who reigns perfectly over his kingdom. Thank you, Nancy, for your humble heart and prayer that desires to see more and more people give their affections to this amazing paradoxical kingliness that leads us to serve others with humility and courage.”
Kathleen Um, Director of Family and Women’s Ministries, Citylife Presbyterian Church, Boston, Massachusetts

Nancy Guthrie’s Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series brings a depth to women’s ministries that we desperately need. When you complete The Son of David, you will have a wonderful grasp of the historical books, but also your heart will melt as you see Jesus unveiled in every book. John Piper has said, ‘Beholding is becoming,’ and this is the kind of study that helps us behold our God and, in so doing, becoming the godly women we long to be.”
Dee Brestin, author, Idol Lies and The God of all Comfort

As Christian growth leaders, we are constantly searching for Bible study material that is scripturally sound and grounded on biblical truths. Nancy Guthrie has a wonderful gift of keeping her studies interesting and challenging. The Son of David, perhaps her most inspiring work in the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series thus far, is no exception. No matter where students are in their spiritual walk or in their realm of biblical knowledge, they will be inspired as they discover Jesus in the books of the Old Testament.”
Kitty Kosman, Christ the King Lutheran Church, Memphis, Tennessee

Endorsements for The Wisdom of God

In an age where too many ‘Bible’ studies fail to open the Bible—or, if opened, fail to touch on the actual themes in the text itself—Nancy Guthrie immerses us in the wisdom of the Word. How refreshing! With her keen observations, penetrating applications, and thoughtful, engaging questions, Nancy Guthrie’s latest study on the Old Testament Wisdom Books and the Psalms gets us to see and smell, taste and touch, and understand and apply the everyday wisdom of Christ—our creator and crucified Lord.”
Douglas Sean O’Donnell, Senior Pastor, New Covenant Church, Naperville, Illinois; author, God’s Lyrics and The Beginning and End of Wisdom

I love Nancy’s infectious passion for teaching the Old Testament in a relevant, practical, spiritual, and Christ-centered way. I’m confident that this book will ignite that same passion in many others—transforming lives, families, churches, and communities.”
David P. Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

In this study guide, Nancy Guthrie shows how the Old Testament Wisdom Books and the Psalms provide practical life lessons for Christians and stand as pointers to the supreme wisdom of God in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. With great skill she leads the reader to the heart of each book being studied, and demonstrates its place in Scripture as a testimony to Christ. Christian readers are encouraged to read the Old Testament Wisdom Literature in light of the relationship we have with Christ, who is the power and wisdom of God.”
