Item Description...
Brimming with insights, this volume by evangelical scholars explores a broad range of Old Testament studies. The contributors explore methodological issues, survey the five major eras in Israel's history, and focus on specific issues related to understanding Old Testament historical texts-such as the dating of the Exodus, the use of large numbers during Israel's monarchy, and the literary features in the book of Esther. Compiled in honor of Eugene H. Merrill, this volume helps Old Testament students understand how to "give the sense" (in the words of Nehemiah 8:8) of what God's Word says in historical narratives.

Publishers Description

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Diverse collection of essays on OT historical narrative  Apr 4, 2004
This is truly a diverse collection of essays. The only thing they have in common is they all address Old Testament historical narrative literature, in one way or another, and the authors approach the text from a conservative perspective.

Each chapter is written by a different scholar, and the depth and content varies from one to the next. The chapters are grouped into sections dealing with historical issues, archaeology, literary studies, and so forth. Although this probably reflects my own personal interests more than anything else, I found some of the chapters to be excellent, and others to be not so well-written. A few of the essays lacked clear organization of thought. In addition, some are cursory overviews of the material, while others make for more advanced reading. I especially enjoyed William Shea's chapter on the exodus pharaoh; Alan Ross's chapter on whether or not the Patriarchs knew the divine name; and Gordon Johnston's literary study of the book of Esther. Although Edwin Yamauchi's chapter is really not much more than an annotated bibliography, I always like reading his work. The contributions by Carl Rasmussen, Bryant Wood, and Eugene Merrill are also good, although maybe not as in-depth as I would have liked.
