Product Description

"I am a bit puzzled over why many Christians seem to think the Old Testament is such a 'problem.' I know the usual answers to that, but I can find many of the same 'difficulties' with the New Testament. What I am not so puzzled about is why some pastors and teachers are perplexed about expounding Old Testament texts. For nearly two hundred years a skeptical brand of Old Testament criticism has largely held sway in our universities and divinity halls; it 'un-godded' the Old Testament, implied the Old Testament documents were extremely complex and involved, and managed to make Old Testament studies mostly boring, lifeless, and dull ..."

"I'm not on a crusade against the villains of Old Testament studies. One learns even from the 'villains.' And there have been far more hopeful signs in Old Testament studies in recent years. But I still believe that traditional Old Testament criticism has had the effect of killing the Old Testament for the church. This little tome can hardly reverse that, but it is meant as an exercise in reading the Old Testament for fun and profit ..."

"Most of what I do in the following pages involves discussing examples of Old Testament narratives. I have tried to select examples from a broad range of possibilities. By the way, I assume that you have the biblical text handy in order to carry on your 'Berean' work."
---Dale Ralph Davis

Publisher's Description

There is no more gifted expositor of the Old Testament in our day than Ralph Davis. His book not only brings scholarly research to bear on the subject, but also reflects his many years of preaching week after week through the OT. What a gift to the church to have such a fine book. Richard Pratt

    In your Bible study do you want to rake for leaves or dig for gold??? Dale Ralph Davis hands us a shovel and teaches us to dig for our riches in The Word Became Fresh. While this book is very informative it is also very impressive. Imagine the best exegetical rigorous explanation of Romans combined with the illustrative emotional pictorial description of the Psalms. My point is the book is balanced.

    Please invest in this book for yourself or for a friend. I can not recommend the book enough.

    For example, have you ever heard a preacher or a Bible commentary micro-manage a text? Making a minor point major? D.R.D. addresses these common mistakes on page 132 in an excerpt about the freeway sermon. "The goal is too stick on the main highway without jumping off at every interesting exit".

    Chapter 4 describes packaging. What a passage asserts is not only important but where the passage is located is also important.

    I do not wish to bombard you with details but please purchase this book!!!

    I highly recommend this book! Read it, digest it, and if you're a preacher, implement it. Also, get Dr. Davis' other books, i.e., his commentaries on various historical books.
