The Old Testament Documents
Full Product Description
In this thought-provoking book Walter C Kaiser Jr. makes the case that the Old Testament documents are both historically reliable and personally and socially relevant. He begins in part one by looking at the origins of the Old Testament books and how well their texts were preserved.
Then in part two he explores Old Testament history, giving special attention to details in the book of Genesis and the patriarchal narratives. Similarly, he gives close attention to the events and historical synchronisms for the kings of Judah and Israel.
In part three he surveys the larger questions of the trustworthiness and authority of the various genre in the Old Testament-historical narrative, wisdom and prophecy.
Finally, in part four Kaiser probes the relevance of the Old Testament for Christian faith today, once again addressing each genre present. In an epilogue he asks and answers the questions, What is the Old Testament all about? Readers will also find a helpful glossary of terms at the back.
The Old Testament Documents by Walter C. Kaiser was published by Intervarsity Press in September 2001 and is our 28037th best seller. The ISBN for The Old Testament Documents is 9780851115580.
