In this enduring classic, Alfred Edersheim explores the broad sweep of Old Testament history. He brings to his work his immense learning and familiarity with Judaism, as well as his love for Scripture and his desire for every Christian to know and understand the story of God's redemptive work in history.

This new edition of Edersheim's classic features the following improvements:

- Entirely reset in a modern and easy-to-read typeface
- Complete and unabridged in one volume
- Arabic numbers replace roman numerals
- New maps to provide for richer understanding

"In writing it "[Bible History: Old Testament]" I have primarily had in view those who teach and those who learn, whether in the school or in the family. But my scope has also been wider. I have wished to furnish, what may be useful for reading in the family, --what indeed may, in some measure, serve the place of a popular exposition of the sacred history. More than this, I hope it may likewise prove a book to put in the hands of students, to show them what the Bible really teaches."
--Alfred Edersheim

From the Back Cover:

In his Preface to this classic work on the Old Testament, Alfred Edersheim describes his purposes and intended audience. Edersheim wrote this volume for "those who teach and those who learn....to furnish what may be useful for reading in the family...not only to show them what the Bible really teaches, but to defend them against the insidious attacks arising from misrepresentation and misunderstanding of the sacred text". Further, Edersheim wrote this work "in a form so popular and easily intelligible as to be of use to the Sunday-school teacher, the advanced scholar, and the Bible-class, progressing gradually from the more simple to the more detailed". The Scripture narrative is discussed according to the order of the books of the Bible, chapter by chapter, with biblical references clearly marked to enable the reader to easily find the passages being explained.

About the Author:

Alfred Edersheim (1825-89) was a Vienna-born biblical scholar who converted from Judaism to Christianity. A veteran minister and missionary to the Jews of Romania, Edersheim left an enduring and priceless legacy to followers of Christ. Among his most widely read works are "The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, The Temple: Its Ministry and Services, " and "Bible History Old Testament."
