“From a solidly traditional orothodox perspective, Professor Barrois seeks to combine the insights of patristic exegesis (the ‘mind of the Fathers’) with modern historical-critical biblical interpretation. His motive is crisply stated at the outset and carefully adhered to throughout: ‘The end is Christ, and our objective is to show how the reading of the OT in the light of Tradition leads us to him in whom the Law and the Prophets were fulfilled’ (p. 9). The tone of the book can be caught by these words from the concluding postscript: ‘With each step of our journey through the Bible, we have tried to discern the face of Christ amidst the shadows of the past, in figure, in type, in prophecy, folowing the steps trodden by the Fathers of the Church.'” –from Journal of Biblical Literature
