Introducing the Old Testament (third edition)
This classic work is widely recognised as the most useful and accessible survey of the Old Testament. A comprehensive examination of both the context and content of the Hebrew Bible, with additional material on the historical identity of Ancient Israel and its theological legacy for today, it is fully aware of current scholarship, faithful to the text and to historical details. An outstanding book which is stimulating and informative, both for the individual reader and for schools and colleges. Now fully revised and updated, taking account of recent scholarship and archaeological findings, this classic work has been further enhanced by the introduction of full colour maps and diagrams.
