Rich rewards await readers who dig deep into the historical books of the Old Testament. Incredible events, amazing love stories, larger-than-life personalities and deep theological implications and themes are just part of the t treasure that awaits readers of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther.
These books tell the story of the nation of Israel and the God who loves her, punishes her, and always brings this recalcitrant people back to Himself. It is really the story of all of us.
David M. Howard Jr. provides an in-depth introduction to the Old Testament historical books, focusing first on the overarching themes of historical narrative in general. He then turns his attention to each book.
From the conquest of Canaan to the fall of Jerusalem, from war to peace and back to war, from kings and queens to farmers and housewives--David Howard covers it all in this invaluable introduction to the Old Testament historical books.
Matt Harber5 Stars Out Of 5August 13, 2009Matt Harber(NOTE: This is a review of the 1st edition.)This book's section on Chronicles begins by saying, "The books of Chronicles are wonderful." The same can be said, I think, of David Howard's introduction to the historical books of the Old Testament (Joshua-Esther in our English Bibles). Howard's engaging writing style and thorough research combine to produce an incredibly useful and concise "one-stop shop" for introductory matters pertaining to this section of the Bible.This book was the textbook for a college course I took on the Historical Books. Before each class, we were quizzed on the relevant chapter from Howard's book. I found the readings from this book to be one of the most helpful parts of that class, and I have revisited this book often as I have had opportunity to teach these books to others.This book does everything an introduction should do. The charts are plentiful and clearly presented, the most significant textual problems are fairly evaluated, and Howard's views are sane and well-defended. I highly recommend this book to college students, Bible class teachers and others seeking to gain a solid foundational understanding of this section of the Old Testament.
