A Survey of the Old Testament

Capa
Harper Collins, 2000 - 608 páginas
A Survey of the Old Testament goes far beyond simply rephrasing biblical material to provide balanced insights on the literary, historical, and theological issues of each Old Testament book and of the Old Testament as a whole. This revised edition makes the exceptional scope of the first edition more accessible to contemporary readers. A redesigned interior complete with new visuals--maps, photos, timelines, and charts--makes this book more attractive and useful than ever. Treating the books of the Old Testament in the order of the English canon, A Survey of the Old Testament explores the purpose and message of each book and shows how its literary structure has been applied to accomplish the intention of its inspired author. The book also introduces the reader to issues such as Israelite and Near Eastern history, archaeology, the formation of the canon, and geography Written by two widely respected scholars and educators, A Survey of the Old Testament is designed to help readers develop a broad grasp of the Old Testament.
