3GT Episode 36: The Shadow Shows

Can you see Christ portrayed in the Book of Job? If so, how? The shadow shows!

The Three Guys welcome C.J. Williams, Professor of Old Testament Studies at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary, as they discuss his new book The Shadow of Christ in the Book of Job. As they sit at the good doctor’s feet and discuss the story of Job, they are reminded of what proper typology is and how to avoid merely allegorizing. They learn of the “Messianic Trajectory” set by this story. They hear of amazing similarities between Job and another shadowy Old Testament figure. And they hear what Aaron has in common with Job’s friends!

    I was going to restrain myself from entering this giveaway, since I entered a previous one, but it looks like you still have one left after over a week, so if Wipf and Stock are willing to send a copy to England I would like one please!
