The newest and best Old Testament intro for college and university students
In this up-to-date, student-friendly text, Robert Hubbard and J. Andrew Dearman bring decades of scholarly study and class-room experience to bear as they introduce readers to the context, composition, and message of the Old Testament.
Each chapter orients readers to the Old Testament book or books under consideration, outlining historical and cultural background, literary features, main characters, and structure. Through-out these discussions-of the Torah, the historical books, the prophets, and the poetry-Hubbard and Dearman also identify and trace key theological themes.
Replete with maps, illustrations, sidebars, discussion questions, and suggestions for further reading, Introducing the Old Testament will equip students to read, wrestle with, and personally engage these ancient sacred texts.
