Ignorance of the Old Testament= Spiritual Malnourishment

From Bruce Waltke’s An Old Testament Theology:

The consequence of a general ignorance about the Old Testament among the people of God is a pervasive reduction of the full message of the New Testament to a basic gospel of atonement and individual ethics. I suspect many Christians feel spiritually undernourished because they live out their lives on the basis of about ten biblical texts.

Ouch.
