Though essential to the Christian faith, the Old Testament remains an enigma to many. Some view it as disjointed and difficult to understand, or as nothing more than a collection of archaic documents that are irrelevant for Christians today. In clear and concise language, Tremper Longman addresses three questions to help resolve this problem: What are the keys to understanding the Old Testament? Is the God of the Old Testament also the God of the New Testament? and How is the Christian to apply the Old Testament to life? 160 pages, from Baker.
A noted biblical scholar explores three questions Christians often ask about the Old Testament and provides answers that are both satisfying and understandable.
Christians often face a number of obstacles to their understanding of the Old Testament, including differences in culture, worldviews, traditions, language, and geography. Longman provides practical principles for achieving a fuller understanding of what the Old Testament says.
He looks at each section of the Old Testament--law, history, poetry, wisdom, and prophecy--and explains the issues involved in applying that section to Christian life today. Scripture and subject indexes are included.
