Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sent the Wrong Book Twice  Feb 13, 2008
I ordered a new Hardcover copy of the 4th Edition of Understanding the Old Testament, by Bernard W. Anderson.

Instead, I was shipped a new Softcover copy of the 4th Edition of Understanding the Old Testament.

I communicated with customer service by phone & e-mail, and requested a Hardcover replacement. I shipped back the Softcover book.

The second copy (replacement)of the 4th Edition of Understanding the Old Testament was sent to me, and despite requesting, again, a Hardcover copy; this copy, too, was Softcover.

I called & e-mailed customer service again, and this time requested a "return", having received the wrong book, twice.

I shipped the second book back, & received confirmation that my refund for the book (plus original shipping)had been ok'd.

I can't really do a review of the book I ordered because I neveer got it.

Understanding the Old Testament Abridged 4th edition  Jan 5, 2007
I'm enjoying the read. It is slow because of the references to Bible passages, so have your Bible handy unless you have it memorized.
I would recommend this book for anyone who wishes to get the real connection between the Old and New Testaments.
Understanding the Old Testament  Oct 17, 2005
This is an invaluable guide to assist in understanding the Old Testament. The author provides important historical background to help the reader understand what the original authors/compilers were trying to say. I am currently using this text for my 1st year Education for Ministry class.
Excellent Read!  Oct 11, 2005
I have had a copy of the 3rd edition, which I have found truly helpful in understanding the OT in the context of the faith of the people. The material added in this edition makes the text even more useful. I highly recommend this to any serious student of the Bible.
Fleshes out the Bible  May 29, 2001
No question the Old Testament is a great read, but face it, the original audience for this work is long dead and buried. Anderson's standard text on the world of the Old Testament is excellent in bringing the ancient world and the context for the collection that is the Old Testament to light. Reading the Bible without Anderson you get a story about some guy named Abram who took a walk one day and had some trouble with his new neighors. Reading it with Anderson, you get a deeper understanding of where Abraham came from, where he was headed, and how the belief of early Judahism developed through and in conflict with those of the neighboring Canaanites. The agrarian focused religion of the Canaanites get's it's own hearing as a people's attempt to make sense of the life around them. "Understanding the Old Testament" then provides this level of insight and background for all the other books of the Old Testament. How and why we now have the expression of the Jewish people's understanding of God gains more texuture and depth.
