Companion to the Old Testament

Full Product Description

This book provides intelligent enrichment for encounters with the Old Testament, the first part of the Christian Bible.

There are chapters on its five main sections: the Pentateuch, the Historical Books, Poetry and Wisdom, the Prophets, and the Apocrypha.

Each of the core chapters covers three areas: an introduction to the general significance of each section in its ancient context; a survey of major ways these sacred texts have been interpreted in the global history of Christianity; and suggestions for how its texts apply to Christian ministry and mission today. These areas are often treated separately by scholars, but this book usefully offers an integrated overview of these areas that will inform and inspire, and serve the interests and needs of students and general readers alike.

Companion to the Old Testament by Douglas Earl; Hywel Clifford; Lena-Sofia Tiemeyer; Ryan P. O'Dowd was published by SCM Press in September 2016 and is our 38771st best seller. The ISBN for Companion to the Old Testament is 9780334053934.
