The key to understanding the Scriptures.

After much waiting, Chad Bird’s newest book, The Christ Key: Unlocking the Centrality of Christ in the Old Testament is finally here! I’ve been eagerly anticipating this release and, needless to say, if the first two chapters are any indication, Chad doesn’t disappoint. In The Christ Key, Chad is articulating the requisite necessity of the Old Testament for any understanding of the Christ of the New Testament. The modern notion of “unhitching the Old Testament” from the church is worse than misguided. Doing so causes one to miss Christ entirely. I’m gratefully indebted to Chad’s insistent Christo-centricity, which is evident in nearly all of his writing, and this book is the culmination of many of those convictions. I cannot wait to dive deeper and unlock more doors with “the Christ key.” And I do hope, too, that you’ll pick up a copy for yourself.
