Item Description...
Since its launch in 1987, Introducing the Old Testament has been widely acclaimed text for students and general readers alike. This thorough revision differs in important ways from the original edition. As well as being considerably longer, it takes into account the most recent scholarship, especially in relation to historical questions such as the origins of Israel as a nation. It incorporates more specific treatment of the spirituality and religious values of the Old Testament, and discusses the major deuterocanonical books. This edition also analyses some of the ethical issues raised by the Old Testament in relation to contemporary concerns such as ethnic cleansing. Introducing the Old Testament provides an excellent and informative introduction to a collection of writings that lie at the heart of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and is illustrated throughout with maps, charts and photographs.

Publishers Description
"There is a wealth of the latest scholarship here, yet written so lucidly and simply that the message is absolutely clear. . . . It makes exciting reading of a most informative kind."--"Church of England Newspaper"

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great, plain English book!  Mar 13, 2008
My husband wanted this book as a study aid for our Sunday School class. He already had Drane's book on the New Testament and liked it a lot and thought this one would be good too. It has been been just the thing, very readable, sticks with scripture and offers a lot of background material on the events and people of the Old Testament. He has found it very worthwhile. It came quickly, even just before Christmas, great packing and this site's unbeatable service.
Good General Overview  Jul 5, 2006
This volume provided a good general overview of the Bible. It included current scholarship and did not gloss over the more challenging aspects of Biblical history. It does not however include Bibliographies at the end of the chapters and often failed to sight sources to back up every statement. This is somewhat understandable but more references would have been appreciated. It appears to be an overview written from the perspective of a believing scholar. In general, it was well worth the read and very informative.
Recommended for personal or seminary biblical studies  Dec 14, 2001
Now completely revised, updated, and expanded from its initial publication in 1987, John Drane's Introducing The Old Testament is a highly accessible text meant for both students and general readers who wish to better understand the Biblical stories that form the core of Judeo-Christian belief. The revisions have sizeably increased the length of Introducing The Old Testament, adding the most recent scholarship, particularly as regards historical queries such as the origins of the nation of Israel. Filled with black-and-white illustrations of maps, artwork, and photographs, Introducing The Old Testament is a singularly impressive body of work and an excellent way for one to familiarize oneself with the intense discussions and debates over scripture that continue to this day. Introducing The Old Testament is very highly recommended for any personal or seminary biblical studies program or reference shelf.
