    Introducing the Old Testament is a great guide for what it says introducing the Old Testament :-) This book is for the reader who desires to understand a synopsis of the books, authorship/date of the books, Genre/style of the books, and Connections to the New Testament. Oh and Mr. Longman dwells into some theological history too.

    First off I am not a Bible Scholar, I simply am a person who desires to draw closer to God on a daily basis. This being said a Pastor friend of mine told me and I quote " Tremper is wicked smart". I have to agree with him, the book is extensive without being overwhelming. It was perfect for me because it didn't use language that was above me, but talking to several Pastor's they wanted to read this book too. It's the perfect combination of knowledge and wisdom. Sometimes an author can be full of knowledge, but lack the wisdom to use it appropriately, this is not the truth for Mr. Longman. So dear readers if you read your Bible (which you should every day :) this would be a great add to your library.

    *This book was given to me via netgalley for my honest opinion and I honestly gave it.
