001 - Mission in the Old Testament

Mission in the Old Testament (by Walter Kaiser) was a fairly good read. The book is short (a whole 82 pages) and a fairly quick read. The main premise of the book was the idea that God chose Israel in the Old Testament to be His people so that they could take His love to the other nations. Kaiser builds a strong argument, but at several points the reader may find him proof texting. The other major drawback to the book is that it is not necessarily an incredibly interesting book. It seems to be about a fairly obscure topic that not everyone would find interesting.

Unless Israel's role in the Old Testament is an intriguing thing to you, you may not want to pick up this little volume. Yet, if the Old Testament is interesting to you and you have a spare afternoon you could quickly make your way through this book.
