Many who recognize the abiding value of the Old Testament as God's Word neglect its study because they see it as a difficult and forbidding subject. Although Father Jensen cannot reduce the difficulty, he uses a combination of the historical, literary, and thematic approaches to present as unified a treatment as possible, one that with even a modest degree of effort will produce rich rewards. No attempt has been made to cover every aspect of the Old Testamentmessage. Instead, the most important matters have been chosen and given the space and emphasis they deserve.

An entirely new revision of a popular college textbook. Jensen has not only updated all the helpful reading lists throughout the book, but he has also allocated the speculative discussion of inspiration and interpretation to the end of the volume. Only after actively studying and explaining the text of the Old Testament is anyone ready to reflect back upon the process. This volume puts each book of the Old Testament into a wide historical-religious frame and points out the relationship and contrast of various schools or traditions.
