The newest and best Old Testament intro for university and seminary students In this up-to-date, student-friendly text, Robert Hubbard and J. Andrew Dearman bring decades of scholarly study and classroom experience to bear as they introduce readers to the context, composition, and message of the Old Testament. Each chapter orients readers to the Old Testament book or books under consideration, outlining historical and cultural back-ground, literary features, main characters, and structure. Throughout these discussions--of the Torah, the historical books, the prophets, and the poetry--Hubbard and Dearman also identify and trace key theological themes. Replete with maps, illustrations, sidebars, discussion questions, and suggestions for further reading, Introducing the Old Testament will equip students to read, wrestle with, and personally engage these ancient sacred texts.

Traditional study of the Old Testament has involved careful analysis of individual books in order to discover their component sources. Outlining some alternatives to this method--yet retaining the values of the conventional technique--this study considers the importance of sociology and anthropology, of liberations and feminist perspectives, and of literary criticism, providing a unique guide for those approaching the Old Testament for the first time, and for those who are disenchanted with staid forms of biblical analysis.

This Introduction attempts to offer a different model for the discipline from that currently represented. It seeks to describe the form and function of the Hebrew Bible in its role as sacred scripture for Israel.
