Review of SONGS OF A SUFFERING KING by J.V. Fesko

SONGS OF A SUFFERING KING by J.V. Fesko is one of those books that seeks to reveal Jesus from the Old Testament. When we want to learn about Jesus, we usually turn to the New Testament, and often the gospels in particular, because Jesus is literally there in that story. The Old Testament is before Jesus was born. Yet the Old Testament is a prequel to the New Testament that foreshadows Jesus through every story in some way.

In SONGS OF A SUFFERING KING, Fesko looks specifically at the first 8 Psalms in the Old Testament and how they relate to Jesus. He makes the connection from David to Jesus and shows how these Psalms point forward to the life and work of Jesus. Through the Psalms we see the conflict that rages in the world between God's will and human rebellion, and we see God as one who promises to bring redemption through his Son.

Fesko's book will help you to see the Psalms in a fresh light.
