9780687066766: A Theological Introduction to the Old Testament: 2nd Edition

This book has become a standard text in seminary and university classrooms. The purpose of this second edition is to help readers come to a critically informed understanding of the Old Testament as the church's scripture. This book introduces the Old Testament both as a witness of ancient Israel and as a witness to the church and synagogue through the generations of those who have passed these texts on as scripture.

The authors of this volume share a commitment to the interpretation of the Old Testament as a central resource for the life of the church today.  At the same time, they introduce the Old Testament witness in a manner that honors the importance of biblical scholarship in helping students engage the variety of theological voices within the Old Testament.
This second edition gives special attention to deepening and broadening theological interpretations by including, for example, issues related to gender, race, and class.  It also includes more detailed maps and charts for student use.
