    This small volume is magnificent as an introductory guide to the Old Testament.

    Pros:

    -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).

    Cons:

    -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).

    Takes a low view of the Bible

    This 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.
