Publisher's Description

This proven Old Testament text with a wealth of full-color images helps readers connect the world of Old Testament with today's world.  This text is unique among Old Testament surveys.  It not only provides an orientation to the world of the Old Testament but also builds a bridge between the original audience and modern readers, demonstrating why the ancient message is important for faith and life today.  It goes beyond basic content to help students understand what the Scriptures mean and how to apply them personally.  Taking readers progressively through the Old Testament, this text:

  • Presents the details of the content, focusing on the story line, historical background, and literary information that address the original setting and audience.
  • Focuses on theology perspectives and on issues of the author's purpose and the universal message of the text, building a bridge between the original audience and today's audience.
  • Develops an understanding of the relevance of the Old Testament writings to today's Christian, showing how they can be applied in personal faith and practice.

The image-rich full-color design gives Old Testament Today a strong visual appeal.  A wide array of charts, sidebars, illustrations, photos, and supplemental materials complement the body of the text, helping students to easily comprehend the literature, theology, and history of the Old Testament.

This newly revised edition is organized by book, includes a new structure that more clearly describes the content, and introduces each book.
