Publisher's Description

The World and the Word is a fresh introduction to the Old Testament driven largely by the fact that so much Christian preaching and teaching today increasingly ignores what is eighty percent of the Bible. Authors Eugene Merrill, Mark Rooker, and Michael Grisanti work through the world and text of the Old Testament always making three major points: 

• The Old Testament is a rich source of theology and doctrine that is presupposed by the New Testament. Without it, Christian theology would be seriously deficient. 

• Mastery of the Old Testament is crucial to an understanding of the New Testament. 

• The Old Testament offers, by teaching and example, practical principles of belief and behavior for contemporary times. Who God was and what He did then can be replicated in the lives of men and women today. 

Separating the verifiable biblical and extra-biblical data from the various interpretations of that same information, the book further shows how the Old Testament forms the platform and matrix from which sprang the life, ministry, and teachings of Jesus and the church. The World and the Word will help students see an entry point into the very heart and design of God who loves them and wishes to make them the special object of His grace.

Endorsements

With its exploration of the historical and cultural world of the Old Testament, its discussion of the composition and canonicity of the individual books, its survey of interpretive approaches both liberal and evangelical, its succinct summary of each book's content and theology, and of their relevance to the New Testament, The Word and the World should become a standard textbook at many evangelical colleges and seminaries, as well as a welcome resource for lay person interested in the Old Testament.
