Item Description...
The Old Testament should not be ignored. Advocating its importance, this book examines the various ways to preach and teach from it.

Publishers Description
Viewed as antiquated and remote, the Old Testament is frequently neglected in the preaching and teaching ministry of the church. But contrary to the prevailing attitude, might the Old Testament contain relevant and meaningful application for today? Renowned author and scholar Walter Kaiser shows why the Old Testament deserves equal attention with the New Testament and offers a helpful guide on how preachers and teachers can give it the full attention it deserves.
Growing out of his teaching material from the last decade, "Preaching and Teaching from the Old Testament "demonstrates Kaiser's celebrated straightforward exposition. Offering an apologetic for the Christian use of the Old Testament, the opening chapters deal with the value, problem, and task of preaching from it. Following a discussion of the role of expository preaching, Kaiser provides a practical focus by examining preaching and teaching from the texts of various genres. A final chapter explores the relevance of the Old Testament in speaking to a contemporary audience.
Bible teachers, pastors, seminary students, and professors will appreciate Kaiser's practical focus and relevant applications. Additional helps include a glossary and suggested outlines and worksheets for expository preaching.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Extremely valuable, important, and relevant - a must read  Jul 4, 2005
Professor Kaiser has given us a remarkably clear, helpful and desperately needed tutorial about how to rightly divide the part of the Scriptures we call the Tanach (Old Testament).

This text is simply a must read for anyone who takes the Bible seriously. Professor Kaiser outlines each type of literature found in the Tanach. He gives valuable insights into how to read and teach, for example, poetry, as opposed to historical narrative. I was amazed at how application-oriented the book is the author is not interested in weighting you down with hermeneutical jargon. Yet he manages to convey important hermeneutical principles and even provides examples.

I was also very happy to see a defense if you will of why the Tanach is important for Christians. Too often Churches ignore the incredible importance of the Tanach; it is the basis of the New Testament. While most do not go to the level of the heretic of Marcion, as Christians we rob ourselves of our rich Biblical history by not taking the time to dig deep into the origins of our faith.

If you have ever felt intimidated about the Tanach, and thought it was too complicated or antiquated to read and understand and apply to your life, I encourage you to read this book. Professor Kaiser has an uncanny ability to explain how to handle the books of the Tanach. The text is not exhaustive, but gives some very helpful principles that is sure to strengthen your faith because you will be able to learn more from the Tanach. I would also strongly suggest that Messianic believers take a serious look at this book; there is a lot of information in here too.

Don't be fooled into thinking this work should be enjoyed only by teachers/preachers. Anyone who has a desire to better understand the Bible will find this a very helpful book. There are sections that discuss how to expound upon the Scriptures, but the majority of the book is still applicable.
