MAITLAND, Fla., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A general misconception is that the Old Testament, where the Mosaic Law is found, exists mainly for its moralizing lessons. Within the pages of J. Arturo Perez-Peña's new book, Síntesis del Antiguo Testamento: Una Mirada al Antiguo Pacto con los ojos puestos en Jesús ($33.99, paperback, 9781628712650; $9.99, e-book, 9781628712667), which translates to "An Introduction to the Old Testament: An overview of the Old Covenant fixing our eyes on Jesus," the author emphasizes God's plan to redeem mankind through Jesus Christ. Furthermore, this book allows readers to see that every word in the Old Testament actually points to the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ.
"We don't have any survey on the Old Testament book written in Spanish explaining the true meaning of the story of God's redemption in the person of Jesus," states the author. "Instead, what we have is a lot of books on the Old Testament stories bringing a 'moralizing teaching' instead of fixing our eyes to Jesus, 'the founder and perfecter of our faith.'"
J. Arturo Perez-Peña has a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and has been working in the I.T. industry for more than twenty years in companies such as IBM and Microsoft. The author has been a Christian since his youth for more than thirty years, and has received formal training in systematic theology, apologetics, counseling, philosophy and more. He has held the position of Bible teacher on two separate occasions. Currently, he is an elder at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Laduerdale, Florida, and he continues exercising his gifts by serving Hispanic ministries in South Florida through his preaching and teaching. The author has published two books with Xulon Press: Síntesis del Antiguo Testamento and Síntesis del Nuevo Testamento.
