Rediscovering the Old Testament

Full Product Description

Whether you're a seasoned scholar, or just wondering why the Old Testament is still relevant, this nuanced read will enlighten you to where the Old Testament belongs in modern faith. Convincing and thoughtful, Katharine Dell refutes Richard Dawkins heated attacks and provides you with the tools to defend this much maligned book, 

Who needs the Old Testament?

It might be a literary classic, but what relevance does it have today?

How much of it can we believe anyway?

Katharine Dell invites you to rediscover the appeal of the Old Testament for the twenty-first century. In doing so she deftly refutes hard-line attacks by writers such as Richard Dawkins; she firmly critiques the atheistic agenda of those scholars who seek to undermine the Old Testament's historical grounding; and she helpfully reassures those within the church who express doubts about its usefulness as a resource for Christian life and thought.

Written by a world expert, this book will help many, both inside and outside the church, to gain a more informed appreciation of the different kinds of literature contained in the Old Testament, and a more nuanced understanding of the developing vision of God to which they witness.
