Item Description...
Overview
Here is a freshly updated edition of one of the most popular introductions to the history and literature of the Old Testament. The Old Testament Speaks offers a clear picture of the archaeological, geographical, historical, and linguistic dimensions of God's covenant with his people from the time of Abraham to the coming of the Messiah. The Old Testament Speaks examines the historical and religious life of the Hebrews, integrates the development of non-hebraic cultures with conventional biblical history, and reviews the best modern scholarly research in placing the Scriptures in their Near Eastern setting. Samuel J. Schultz emphasizes the importance of letting the Scriptures tell their own stories. He makes selective use of the best and latest literature in Old Testament studies, and offers a balanced perspective. Schultz sifts the facts and follows them to their inevitable conclusions. However, when the evidence is not definitive, he exercises caution, presenting his own interpretation as only one of several possible views. Schultz also appraises the impact of recent archaeological and historical findings on the understanding of key portions of the Old Testament. The Old Testament Speaks contains all the relevant material -- biblical and nonbiblical -- necessary for classroom use or personal study of the Old Testament. Schultz provides outlines that reflect the historical background and summarize the contents of each biblical book, as well as charts and maps to help visualize the biblical narrative. He has also revised and updated the biblio-graphies at the end of each chapter.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Old Testament Speaks  Jan 28, 2010
Good survey of all books of the OT. Written from a conservative standpoint - a pretty thorough treatment. I used it for supplemental info for the OT sequence I'm doing through [...] . Shultz was on faculty at Wheaton, and the book was (maybe still is) used for the undergrad OT Survey at MBI.

If you want a survey from the liberal viewpoint, this may not be the one - you will probably want to look elsewhere, such as "Understanding the OT" by B. Anderson.

I give it a 5 because it suited my purpose - filler info to use in conjunction with 8 or 10 other survey / intro / macro / micro type books for the 3 course OT sequence through Reformed Seminary's MAR virtual program.
