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.
"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"
