Product Description

Most Old Testament survey texts focus on introducing the content of the Old Testament books with little attention to the important theological issues. It is precisely those theological issues that lie at the heart of the Christian claim that the Old Testament is the inspired Word of God. While Discovering the Old Testament is not an Old Testament theology, every chapter demonstrates the conviction of the authors that God was at work in the people and events of the Old Testament. Wesleyan perspectives on sin, salvation, grace, faith, holiness, and the hope of the believer undergird each chapter and are summarized in the theological sidebars. Both students and teachers will find Discovering the Old Testament inviting them into the message of the Old Testament. Clear and concise explanations, easy-to-read summaries, and attractive visual aids answer the questions and remove the misunderstandings that keep people from reading and enjoying the study of the Old Testament.
