Publisher's Description

“Join beloved Bible teacher and best-selling author Dee Brestin in discovering the surprising places Jesus shows up in the Old Testament and the unexpected ways He speaks into our lives today.

Offering a fascinating perspective on the historic, poetic, and prophetic books of the Old Testament, Brestin draws on her deep understanding of the full scope of the Bible to explore the timeless story of God's quest to rescue each of us. She combines rich teaching, memorable storytelling, and an in-depth Bible study component to create a resource that shows readers how the story began (the books of Moses), how to live in the story (the poetic books), and how the story will end (the prophets).”

My Review

The Jesus Who Surprises, by Dee Brestin, is a well-written and thought-provoking Bible study that is perfectly designed to be used by groups or individuals. With short, engaging chapters, corresponding videos that can be watched online for free, and daily homework questions that help the reader explore Scripture more deeply, this Bible study is user friendly, Biblically sound, and faith-filled.

With genuine humility, honesty, and authenticity, Ms. Brestin shares relevant stories from her own experiences in which Jesus surprised her with his great love, mercy, and care. In addition to the encouraging real-life stories, Ms. Brestin also leads the reader through a study of well-chosen scripture passages that highlight the presence, compassion, forgiveness, salvation, and hope that is revealed in Jesus throughout the entirety of the Bible.

I found this Bible study to be refreshingly compelling and soul-stirring. Truly informative and inspiring, The Jesus Who Surprises is a Bible study I sincerely recommend to everyone.
