Praise for the First Edition

"Arnold and Beyer have produced an exciting new survey of the Old Testament with the college student specifically in mind. They have masterfully designed their work with text and graphics in a way that will not only grip the student's attention but will guide students through the material with their expert touch. I enthusiastically recommend this volume to you."-- Tremper Longman III, Westmont College

"Teachers and students will find the book useful for its purpose. . . . [This volume] should be in Bible colleges and seminary libraries. Pastors and interested laypeople will also benefit from [it]."-- David W. Baker, Near East Archaeological Society Bulletin

"This volume presents the best and most complete college-level survey of the Old Testament presently available. It incorporates contemporary media and formats, not only in terms of its CD-ROM, but also with the splendid use of color illustrations, photos, charts, maps, and inserts throughout the book."-- Richard S. Hess, Denver Seminary Journal Online

"For college students who are encountering the Old Testament for the first time, this attractively produced textbook offers a clear and helpful orientation to the world and literature of the Old Testament. A refreshing improvement over the standard textbook fare!"-- Richard Schultz, Wheaton College

"Written from an Evangelical point of view, the critical scholarship that undergirds this work can certainly serve the needs and interests of a much broader audience. . . . This volume can be read by those who are looking for a sound yet introductory treatment of the biblical material."-- Dianne Bergant, CSA, The Bible Today

"I think many beginning college students in this computer age would be more likely to read (and learn!) from this book than from many standard, dull, and boring monochrome texts."-- Joel F. Drinkard, Review & Expositor

"The authors are commended for providing their readers with a lucid survey of the Old Testament. The illustrations, sidebars, glossary, and study questions open up the relevance of the biblical text both in its ancient context and in our modern situation. A very useful volume."-- Willem A. VanGemeren, Trinity International University
