The Old Testament is full of shadows... And when we look at these shadows, we can see something that looks a lot like Jesus.
This beautifully illustrated book will help children to spot the shadows of Jesus on every page of the Bible. Through Bible stories familiar and unfamiliar, children will discover Jesus as God’s Lamb, the Lion of Judah, Saviour of the World and so much more…
What a gift this book is to children and parents! This book joins the ranks of a whole range of children’s books recently emerging that are leading us to Christ through the Old Testament. Nancy Guthrie has followed the instinct of Spurgeon: ‘There is a road from here to Jesus Christ, and I mean to keep on His track till I get to Him.’ She masterfully shows us through various characters, objects and systems of the Old Testament how they foreshadow Christ. In doing so, she helps parents veer from the easy temptation of turning the Old Testament stories into moralism and examples for us to ‘be better’. We see Jesus as the Second Adam (the Garden of Eden), the Ark of Safety (Noah), the Bright Morning Star (Abraham), the Beloved Son (Isaac), the Wisdom of God (Solomon), the True Temple and many, many more. I’ve enjoyed reading this book with its marvellous illustrations by Jenny Brake to my children – my children are now seeing shadows of Jesus throughout the Old Testament.
As soon as I read it, I knew it was the perfect picture book for Lent or Advent. The premise is that within the Old Testament stories are glimpses of the Messiah. The illustrations furthers that message by portraying certain objects’ or people’s shadows in the shape of Jesus. It’s filled with the most lovely prose, pointing our kids to the hope of who Jesus is.
