Publisher's Description

Proven three-tiered approach and a wealth of full-color images help readers connect the Old Testament with today's world. Old Testament Today 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. Old Testament Today goes beyond basic content to help students understand what the Scriptures mean and how to apply them personally. Similar to the acclaimed NIV Application Commentary, this text takes the reader section by section through the Old Testament using a progressive, three-step format: * Original Meaning presents the details of the content, focusing on the story line, historical background, and literary information that address the original setting and audience. * Bridging Contexts focuses on theological 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. * Contemporary Significance 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.

    The subtitle says it all. This is an excellent introduction to the Old Testament's original meaning using eye-catching and informative pictures, tables, graphs, etc. Then it gives expanded answers to "Why should we read the Old Testament, we're New Testament believers?" The authors are helpful and write clearly without getting bogged down in detail. Every church where the Bible is taught and preached should at least have one copy of this volume In the church library.
