Customer Reviews For "A Survey of the Old Testament Introduction"Write Your Own Review
An excellent introduction to the critical issues surrounding each book of the OT. Archer almost invariably defends a conservative interpretation at each point, arguing for the authenticity of the text and resolving interpretive difficulties. The book is divided into three parts. The first half of the general introduction discusses critical issues at a general level, introducing the reader to various forms of criticism. The second half of the general introduction is a critique against the Documentary Hypothesis. The special introduction focuses on the interpretative issues that arise in connection with each book of the OT. The appendices are independently interesting and useful material-especially the appendices laying out the timeline of the OT and an enumeration of some of the manuscript evidence supporting the OT texts.
