Written by two leading Old Testament scholars and widely used throughout the world, Philip Davies and John Rogerson's The Old Testament World describes the historical, social, and cultural setting in which the Old Testament was written and examines the major genres of literature that it contains. Ideally suited for college-level introductory classes, it illuminates the literature of the Old Testament by showing how it was shaped by the events, social structures, and religious and intellectual ideas of the ancient civilizations and cultures in which it was produced.

Jonathan BeckerBlue Springs, MOAge: 18-24Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5A Fantastic (Yet brief) Overview of the OTJune 21, 2013Jonathan BeckerBlue Springs, MOAge: 18-24Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This small volume is magnificent as an introductory guide to the Old Testament.
-It provides relevant background material without being too overbearing.
-Each of the OT books receives relevant treatment (whether specifically or in a group).
-The authors are respectful of faith traditions even where their conclusions may be uncomfortable for a person of faith (myself included).
-Few authors are actually engaged in the text. The giants like Gunkel and Noth are mentioned, but many other capable scholars are left unmentioned.
-There are no good citations. One cannot check the sources that the authors used. One may only look at the "Further Reading" suggestions.
Aside from those small quibbles, I completely recommend this book for the informed student of the Old Testament. (Not necessarily the best choice for a beginning reader, however).
Dan BClarence, NYAge: 55-65Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Takes a low view of the BibleOctober 26, 2012Dan BClarence, NYAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This is a good book for readers who don't believe the Bible is the Word of God unless it is verified by science and archaeological findings. The writers take a very low view of Scripture, treating it like just another ancient resource to be compared with all the others.
