"The most up-to-date, clearly written, carefully arranged and comprehensive general introduction to the Old Testament. The book abounds with pedagogical helps for student and classroom; the tone is challenging but always reverential. All teachers will want a copy,"---The Bible Today. 528 pages, softcover. Paulist.
Reading the Old Testament was recognized as a classic almost from its date of publication in 1984. Without in any way diminishing its famed clarity, judiciousness, and theological depth, two prominent scholars, Richard Clifford and Daniel Harrington, have brought the book into the twenty-first century.
