This widely acclaimed textbook, newly expanded and redesigned, helps readers better understand the Old Testament (and the God it reveals) by exploring the literary, historical, and theological issues behind it and behind each of its books. Helpful maps, photos, timelines, and charts now in full color.

^The purpose of studying the Old Testament is to understand God and his redemptive work more fully. However, this goal is complicated by the fact that it was transmitted through a very different language and culture from our own. A Survey of the Old Testament provides an indispensable guide for undergraduate students and other readers by exploring the literary, historical, and theological issues behind the Old Testament and its various books.

^ ^For each Old Testament book, the Survey addresses background information, purpose, message, structure, and major themes. Chapters introducing each major section of the Old Testament are included, as are chapters dealing with issues of interpretation, geography, archaeology, history, formation of the Old Testament canon, and the Old Testament's relationship to the New Testament. The text is enhanced throughout by maps, photos, timelines, and charts. This full-color third edition of a widely acclaimed textbook has been expanded and redesigned in both text and graphical elements, making it even more beneficial.

Helpful introduction
4 stars By Hoa, Dec 17 2017
This is a helpful survey aimed at the beginner. Chapters on various topics regarding the Old Testament such as history, archaeology, canon, etc. are interspersed throughout the book. The bulk of this volume dedicates a chapter to each book of the Old Testament. Each book has its structure, composition and content outlined, followed by an annotated bibliography of suggested further reading.

A great introductory survey
5 stars By Jerey, Jul 14 2016
This textbook is a great read for anyone wanting to dive into the Old Testament. Written in simple language, the text covers information about the history and context of the Old Testament. I'm using it for college, but would recommend it for any laymen to use for personal study of the Old Testament.
