A Survey Of The Old Testament


This innovative textbook at long last provides an Old Testament survey for undergraduate students that goes beyond basic content. The book attempts to balance the literary, historical, and theological issues pertaining to each individual book and to the Old Testament as a whole. The main portion of the survey treats each book of the Old Testament in the order of the English canon. This information does not simply rehash the biblical material, but assumes that the Scriptures are being read alongside the survey. The book focuses its primary attention on the purpose and message of each book and attempts to show how the literary structure of each one has been used to accomplish the author's purpose. The survey also introduces readers to the issues of hermeneutics (general and special), history (Israelite and Near Eastern), archaeology, canon, geography, Old Testament theology (biblical and systematic), and critical methodologies. All these issues are dealt with in separate chapters at a basic introductory level that never allows the reader to lose sight, as it were, of the forest while wandering through the trees. In addressing critical issues of date and authorship, the survey avoids a polemical stance. Hill and Watson seek to depend on the evidence of the text rather than on presuppositions to substantiate their views. Their commitment to the authority of the biblical text results in a book that, while notably evangelical, is not always traditional. The authors approach the survey mindful of two complicating factors in Old Testament study. First, God's revelation did not come by way of the English language or through Western culture, and therefore we today have to work carefully to receive the message clearly. Second, even when we are listening, we have a tendency to be selective about what we hear or to try to make the message conform to our ideas. The solution is to allow the Bible to speak for itself. The informed reader will find much innovation here and a keen awareness of current scholarship relating to the Old Testament. Above all, this textbook will bring a new vigor and excitement to the Old Testament as readers learn to discover its story for themselves and see how to understand it as a substantial part of God's self-revelation to humankind. This survey is well illustrated with maps, charts, and photographs. Additional features are the questions for study and the annotated reading list at the end of each chapter.

Popular Survey Of The Old Testament A


The world of the Old Testament can seem hard to understand, especially for people living in times and places so far removed from the ancient Middle East. It's not just that we wear different clothes and hold different jobs--people in the West just don't have the same history, the same culture, or the same way of thinking as Old Testament characters like Abraham and David. And this disconnect can make studying the Old Testament an arduous and confusing process. A Popular Survey of the Old Testament is designed to help regular Christians enrich their understanding of Old Testament people and events. Illustrated throughout with color photos, charts, and maps, and written in an easy, informal style, this survey is accessible and enjoyable to Christians of all backgrounds.

Chronological Survey Of The Old Testament


As children, we learned many of the stories from the Old Testament. We learned about David and Goliath. We read about Noah and the Flood. Perhaps we even acted out the scenes from the Battle of Jericho or Israel's crossing of the Red Sea in a church play. We remember these stories even into adulthood. Yet, the way in which all of these stories are connected together in order to tell a much bigger story is often not fully understood. Somehow, in the midst of all the story telling, we missed the most important story...the story of redemption and salvation through Christ. Not only is this the most important story that has ever been told, it is the story which is found on every page of the Old Testament. The Chronological Survey of the Old Testament has been written to encourage the student to see the entire Old Testament as a unified message. The book can be used in Sunday School, small groups, or individual Bible study to enrich the understanding of the broader message from God to man given in the Old Testament. Provided in a workbook format, the reader is encouraged to take an active role in the learning process. Discussion questions and review exercises are also included at the end of each major section of the book.
