Product Description

For many years the Moody Introduction to the Old Testament series has provided students with a comprehensive academic introduction to the books and genres of the Hebrew Bible. Containing in depth information on the literary, historical, sociological, exegetical, textual, and theological issues regarding each book in the Historical Books.

Howard's work supplies, in a readable, and easy-to-follow format, all of the information beginning Bible students will need in order to become oriented to critical scholarship and study of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1&2 Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, Ezra-Nehemiah, and Esther-all of which are as rich in drama as they are in theological meaning, and importance for the Christian life.

A national favorite in Christian Colleges across the nation, this book will provide not only learning now, but a continual resource that can be referred to again and again.

Publisher's Description

Rich rewards await readers who dig deep into the historical books of the Old Testament. Incredible events, amazing love stories, larger-than-life personalities, and deep theological themes are just some of the treasures found in Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther.

These books tell the story of the nation of Israel and the God who loves her, punishes her, and always brings this recalcitrant people back to Himself. It is really the story of all of us.

David M. Howard Jr. provides an in-depth introduction to the Old Testament historical books, focusing first on the overarching themes of historical narrative in general. He then turns his attention to each book, considering topics like:

  • Authorship and date
  • Place in the canon
  • Historical and cultural context
  • Theology of the book
  • Special issues pertaining to the book

From the conquest of Canaan to the fall of Jerusalem, from war to peace and back to war, from kings and queens to farmers and housewives—David Howard covers it all in this invaluable introduction to the Old Testament historical books.
