Book Review/Giveaway: Love Divine and Unfailing: The Gospel According to Hosea by Michael P. V. Barrett

This morning my review of the following book was posted at I would also like to offer a free copy of this book to one our TheoSource readers. The aim of this series (The Gospel According to the Old Testament) is threefold:
  • to illuminate the prevalence of the revelation of Christ in the OT
  • to promote a Christ-centered reading of the OT
  • to encourage Christ-centered preaching and teaching from the OT
I would like to hear your thoughts on this aim. If you would like to enter your name for a chance to win a free copy of this book, please leave a comment on the importance of the aim of this series as set forth above. Do you make a point to discover the gospel in the OT as you read? Do you take care to preach Christ when handling OT passages? What difference has this made in your reading, teaching, and/or preaching?

I'll announce one winner on Tuesday, January 13.
