To help readers of the Old Testament understand its message, Paul House carefully explores each book, thematically summarising its content and showing its theological significance within the whole of the canon. He provides a student-friendly approach and fair treatment of differing views, with an unabashedly evangelical perspective. 608 pages, from IVP.

Using history, poetry, prophecy, and apocalyptic literature, the Old Testament vividly portrays God's character. But sometimes cultural and historical barriers block our view of the Old Testament picture. Providing a thematic study of each Bible book, House sketches the history of Old Testament theology from Gabler to the present, offering his own methodology for canonical analysis.
-Publisher

The discipline of Old Testament theology continues to be in flux as diverse approaches vie for dominance. Into the stream Paul R. House sends this student-friendly offering that should prove useful to a wide audience. Following introductory chapters on the history of the discipline and his own method, House discusses the theological emphases of each book in the order of the Hebrew canon. Readers with little prior background will find House's thematic surveys particularly helpful for coming to grips with basic biblical content as well as for probing the theological nuances of individual parts of the canon.The book concludes by forging a set of summary statements concerning God and his character, the people of God, and links between the Old and New Testaments that suggest avenues for the exploration of a full biblical theology.
