About "An Introduction to the Old Testament: Exploring Text Approaches and Issues"
At last, an introduction to the Old Testament that not only covers all the key components of most OT courses but also helps students to think for themselves about key issues of interpretation.Built on decades of studying and teaching the Old Testament, this introduction is unusual in setting out background information, noting interpretative possibilities, raising questions and suggesting approaches. It operates more like a workbook, with the aim of encouraging students to investigate the Old Testament, both critically and prayerfully, for themselves.
