Andy LePeau has been in academic publishing for many years with InterVarsity Press. He is also a talented writer and the author of a new book with Kregel Academic entitled Mark through Old Testament Eyes. He serves as series editor for this new background and application commentary called “Through Old Testament Eyes” and stops by to talk with David Capes on “The Stone Chapel” about the series and about some of the things he discovered about Mark’s Gospel after teaching it for over fifteen years. The book begins: “The New Testament writers were Old Testament people.” He goes on to demonstrate the many ways the Old Testament shaped the minds and hearts of the first Christ followers. He estimates that 90-95% of the Gospel is clarified when we understand the Old Testament view of the God and his people. It is a terrific book and an impressive series. In case you were wondering, you can find it at the Lanier Theological Library. To learn more about Andy, go to his blog “Andy Unedited”: www.andyunedited.com
