Item Description...
This book has become a standard text in seminary and university classrooms. The purpose of this second edition is to help readers come to a critically informed understanding of the Old Testament as the church's scripture. This book introduces the Old Testament both as a witness of ancient Israel and as a witness to the church and synagogue through the generations of those who have passed these texts on as scripture.
The authors of this volume share a commitment to the interpretation of the Old Testament as a central resource for the life of the church today. At the same time, they introduce the Old Testament witness in a manner that honors the importance of biblical scholarship in helping students engage the variety of theological voices within the Old Testament.
This second edition gives special attention to deepening and broadening theological interpretations by including, for example, issues related to gender, race, and class. It also includes more detailed maps and charts for student use.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent!!  Mar 25, 2008
I wish I had the words to write about how this book has enriched my learning and growth. I don't so I'll just say this is an EXCELLENT addition to my library.
This Textbook  Sep 24, 2007
Using as an OT studies text. Well done treatment of theological aspects of OT. Am enjoying using.
Birch, Brueggemann, and Fretheim offer a fresh approach  May 19, 2007
This work is a seminary-level introduction to the Old Testament that bridges the gap between the academic and the confessional study of the Bible. Birch's much-needed approach is founded upon historical-critical scholarship, but it focuses primarily upon the biblical text as theological witness. Welcomed attention is given to how the OT functions theologically for the contemporary community of faith. This book's most likely place will be as a supplementary textbook that is used alongside a more traditional introductory text.
Birch, Bruggeman, Fretheim and Petersen  May 7, 2007
This is an excellent OT theology. I would recommend this to any beginning student of the OT.
Old Testament Voices for our Times  Mar 9, 2007
For the person interested in relating the message of the Old Testament scriptures to present day issues, especially in the area of social justice, this volume offers provocative insights based on sound scholarship. It kick-starts further independent thinking on these issues.
