Product Description

Bernard Anderson's Understanding the Old Testament (4th edition), completely revised and rewritten, takes full advantage of the latest archaeological findings and changes in biblical interpretation. In this lively retelling of the life-story of Israel ("the people of God," from the Exodus to the eve of the Christian or Common era) the author weaves historical, literary, and theological elements of the Old Testament in an inclusive presentation that appeals to all readers, regardless of their social or religious position. This edition introduces special paragraphs of "Definition" to clarify important terms like "Semite," "Israel," and "redaction criticism." Each chapter focuses on specific passages of the Bible as more attention has been given to the question of "canon" and to the final form of biblical texts. The book helps the reader to appreciate the historical, literary, and religious dimensions of the Scriptures that have had, and continue to have, a profound influence on western civilization.
