How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens

How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens:

Understanding how each book of the Bible points to Jesus is vital for preaching, teaching, and personal Bible Study. In How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens, Michael Williams explains how to read Scripture with a comprehension of its Christ-centered focus.
Dave Jenkins reviewed Williams’s book.  He writes:
Recent years have seen an increase in quality books addressing the Christ-centered nature of Scripture. Following in this tradition, Dr. Michael Williams wrote How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens. Written in the tradition of the best-selling How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth series, this book aims to help readers read the Bible through “Jesus lens,” which will aid Christians to “keep our reading, understanding, teaching, and preaching properly focused on God’s grand redemptive program that centers on his own Son” (9). The Jesus lens “ensures that our exegetical bowling balls stay within the lane and don’t go crashing over into areas where they can cause a lot of damage to the faith of believers and to our ability to use the Bible fruitfully in our service to God” (9).
