On the Road to Emmaus, Jesus opened up the Old Testament to two of his followers. We don’t know exactly what he said, but we do know that the resurrected Jesus explained to them that he was the fulfilment of many things written hundreds or thousands of years before.
While we can’t go back in time, we can look at the moments, promises and passages that find their fulfilment in Jesus, giving us a bigger picture of who he is and what he has done.
In short chapters, Road Map to Jesus helps us see the greatness and majesty of Jesus and how he really is the one that God’s people have been waiting for.
Alistair has managed to walk us through key Old Testament passages, showing how they point to Christ in chapters that are a simple 5-minute read, making this book ideal for a daily reflection, family Bible time or gift for a new believer.

One of the reasons our world is tearing itself apart is that it has rejected and lost sight of the story of God. Road map to Jesus simply makes you love the beautiful story more and marvel at its Author. Like a masterful detective, Alistair Chalmers has done a brilliant job of pulling together the threads that reveal Christ in the Old and New Testaments. As a church we desperately need to be captivated afresh with the whole Biblical narrative and communicate it to a world that has never needed it more. I am excited by the potential this book has to do this.
Phil Knox, Evangelical Alliance and author of Story Bearer and The Best of Friends
Enlightening, exciting and easy to read, Roadmap to Jesus places us with the disciples on the Emmaus Road journeying through the bigger story of the Bible and how it all points to our glorious saviour. In these short chapters, Alistair Chalmers makes the riches of the Old Testament easy to digest and accessible to anyone, leaving us asking our own response to Jesus and his word. This book helped me make connections I had never before seen, giving a richer and deeper view of who Jesus is, that he is the same yesterday, today and forever. I would recommend to anyone wanting to see Jesus in all the pages of scripture!

Roadmap to Jesus is a clear and helpful resource for those desiring to see the connection between Jesus and the Old Testament. This book connects many Old Testament passages to the person and work of Jesus and how Jesus fulfils those hopes and promises. Anyone wanting to grow in their understanding of Jesus and the Old Testament will find this a helpful guide and useful resource. This book is an excellent introduction to some key Old Testament passages and prophecies.

Road Map to Jesus is a brilliant read - whether you're a seeker, sceptic, new believer or just someone wanting to see how all the Scriptures point to Jesus. Each chapter is refreshingly short yet surprisingly rich. You'll join Alistair on a journey that starts right back at the beginning and casts your eyes forward to days yet to come. Along the way you'll discover who Jesus is, what he is like, and why he came. I pray that as you read, you'll get to know him and see his invitation held out to you.
