Product Description

Practical, scriptural discussions of tough topics such as polygamy, genocide, and the role of women in the Old Testament

The God of the Old Testament can seem very foreign to Christians. His actions appear to starkly contrast with the God of grace in the New Testament and with modern notions of justice and propriety.

In this short volume, Old Testament scholar Walter Kaiser devotes each chapter to a different difficult subject, including creation, the wrath of God, the genocide of the Canaanites, Gods knowledge of the future, polygamy, Satan, the view of women, and application of the Old Testament law. He addresses each topic in a practical, accessible tone, with pastoral insight and humor, consistently focusing on the Scriptures.

In Tough Questions about God and His Actions in the Old Testament, the reader will find that there are not two different gods in the Bible and that the Old Testament is not an antique artifact that should now be jettisoned from Christianity. The Old Testament and the God it depicts is One with the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. His actions, when properly understood, are not at variance with the New Testament; rather, a view of the beautiful unity in the Bible as a whole will strengthen the church's faith and aid in Christian witness and apologetics.

Editorial Reviews

"Many critics focus on God's actions in the Old Testament in attempts to disprove Christianity. Dr. Kaiser's efforts show the inaccuracy of this approach, offering a compelling look at how God’s work in the past is consistent with the teachings of the New Testament." -- John Ankerberg, Dr., president and host of The John Ankerberg Show

"Anyone who desires to know God's Word more deeply and believe it more convincingly should read this book." -- Corey H. Barry, President, Biola University

"...this book equips students of the scriptures to better understand and teach the full extent of God's word, without apology but with clarity and full confidence in the character, words, and plan of our Triune God." -- Little Dorington, Senior Pastor, First Congregational Church, Hamilton, MA
