    This is not an exegetical or exposition of OT scripture

    i had to review for my independent study course. This material may be frustrating for some who are thinking it will be more like the commentaries they are used to reading. This book can be used for research along with an exegetical or exposition scripture commentary. There is another good OT background commentry that many scholars used for their resources [I used to have one]; however, I can not think of the name and author of it right now -- it was quite a while ago. Nevetheless, it was very detailed and covered at lot of the background cultural, terrain, etc.

    This is not the same author as New Test. I found this to be frustrating...beware. Instead of insightful teachings into Biblical culture...and how the verse and persons in the Bible relate to this most instances it leaves the verses entirely and goes into other religious myths....Bible characters, perspectives and insights into the culture are replaced with what other religions believe. If I wanted other religions I would not be studying the Bible as Gods Word. The format is not ebook (as in the New Test. background) but Adobe download ....does not give verse or chapter selections...poor, poor navigation. Would not recommend

    I do wish that this book cited sources for its information. It provides a lot of helpful information, but without citing primary sources, one must trust the authors without any verification.

    This book is not written by the same author as its New Testament counterpart. It goes through almost every verse, but offers little insight into the culture or language. It has a lot of other countries mythologies. Beware as you read this, because it also has unmarked opinions, many of them questionable or wrong.

    This book goes into GREAT detail for the background of Biblical times. A great help for discovering the geography, culture, and history of Biblical people and places.
