This package contains all four books of An Introduction to the Old Testament ^set: An Introduction to the Old Testament Historical Books, An Introduction ^to the Old Testament Poetic Books, An Introduction to the Old Testament ^Prophetic Books,and An Introduction to the Old Testament Pentateuch.

In ^An Introduction to the Old Testament Historical Books, rich ^rewards await readers who dig deep into the historical books of the Old Testament. ^Incredible events, amazing love stories, larger-than-life personalities and deep ^theological implications and themes are just part of the treasure that awaits readers ^of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, ^Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther. These books tell the story of the nation of Israel and the ^God who loves her, punishes her, and always brings this recalcitrant people back ^to Himself. It is really the story of all of us. David M. Howard Jr. provides an ^in-depth introduction to the Old Testament historical books, focusing first on the ^overarching themes of historical narrative in general. He then turns his attention ^to each book. From the conquest of Canaan to the fall of Jerusalem, from war to ^peace and back to war, from kings and queens to farmers and housewives--David Howard ^covers it all in this invaluable introduction to the Old Testament historical books.


In An ^Introduction to the Old Testament Poetic Books, C. Hassell Bullock, a noted ^Old Testament scholar, delves deep into the hearts of the five poetic books, offering ^readers helpful details such as harmeneutical considerations for each book, theological ^content and themes, detailed analysis of each book, and cultural perspectives. The ^poetic books of the Old Testament--Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of ^Solomon--are often called humankind's reach toward God. The other books of the Old ^Testament picture God's reach toward man throughthe redemptive story. Yet these ^five books reveal the very hear of men and women struggling with monumental issues ^such as suffering, sin, forgiveness, joy, worship, and the passionate love between ^a man and woman. Hebrew is a language of "intrinsic musical quality that naturally ^supports poetic expression," says Bullock in his introduction. That poetic expression ^comes from the heart of the Old Testament writers and reaches all of us exactly ^where we are in our own struggles and joys.

In An Introduction to the ^Old Testament Prophetic Books, each major and minor prophet and his writing ^are clustered with the major historical events of their time. Our generational distance ^from the age of the prophets might seem to be a measureless chasm. Yet we dare not ^make the mistake of assuming that passing years have rendered irrelevant not only ^the Old Testament prophets, but also the God who comprehends, spans, and transcends ^all time. In these pages, C. Hassell Bullock presents a clear picture of some of ^history's most profound spokesmen--the Old Testament prophets--and the God who shaped ^them.


In An Introduction to the Old Testament Pentateuch, Old Testament ^expert Herbert Wolf provides layreaders and scholars alike with a strong undergirding ^of understanding and knowledge in this introduction that reveals both the seriousness ^and excitement of the Pentateuch. Readers will find Adam, Abraham, Joseph, Moses ^and Joshua in these pages, as well as terrible sin and glorious forgiveness, bloody ^sacrifices and battles, deadly betrayal and life-giving hope.Wolf first addresses ^the overarching themes that flow through the Pentateuch, with special attention ^given to Moses as author of the five books. He then addresses each book specifically, ^covering topics such as purpose and scope, and literary structure. He tailors additional ^study to each specific book. This book contributes significantly to a clear, deep ^understanding of the Bible's first five books.
