Jesus Christ According to the Old Testament

Marin De Boylesve

"For the nation and the kingdom that will not serve Thee, shall perish." (Isaiah 60:12)

Published at a dark time when France was teetering on the brink of losing its predominance in Europe to Germany, and when the red shirt Risorgimento was underway with Rome under attack, ushering in the loss of the papal states and the bleak period of 'Prisoner Popes' under Bl. Pius IX, "Jesus Christ According to the Old Testament" by Fr. Marin de Boylesve (1813-1892) is a rallying cry of encouragement for the faithful of his time besieged by the ongoing ravages of the anti-religious revolutions, a publication which remains just as relevant and encouraging for us today in our own tumultuous era.

Examining sacred and ancient history as recorded in the Old Testament, Fr de Boylesve demonstrates where all revolutions truly spring from, that revolutions may promise but never bring true freedom and civilized progress, and that it is only through obedience to God, to His Christ and to His rule that true peace, freedom, and civilization be found.

The author demonstrates the Universal Kingship of Jesus of Nazareth: that He is truly the promised Messiah of the ancient prophecies, the Christ, that is, the Anointed One, and as God's anointed One, He is King of kings and Lord of Lords, the Lion of the tribe of Judah - the Son of God Whose Kingdom shall have no end. Those who remain true to Christ and His Church, the victory is already assured, and, also imparts a word of warning to persecutors: "Woe to that nation, woe to that king who refuses to submit to Him," cries Fr de Boylesve, for it has been declared through the prophet Isaiah, "The nation that shall not serve Thee shall perish."

No matter how dark the times may seem, the loyal followers of the Christ are on the victorious side of history and eternity.

Jesus Christ, the King of kings, will bring an end to all disorders.

Published for the first time in English, this new edition features a biography of the author, thirty-nine illustrations, as well as prayers to Christ the King and prayers for the Triumph of the Catholic Faith, this book is a must-have for your spiritual reading.

About the Author: Fr. Marin de Boylesve is best remembered in France for spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart with his writings thereby promoting the cause for the construction of the Sacre Coeur Basilica in Paris.
