Publisher's Description

While both the Old and New Testaments are part of our Christian heritage, the Old Testament can feel particularly foreign and mysterious. Its violence is startling; its heroes flawed; its history complex; and its locations a far cry from Kansas. While no one needs to become an archeological expert to grasp the message of Scripture, background information can deepen our appreciation and understanding as we read. In this wide-ranging, lively introduction to the world of the Old Testament, Sinkinson gives an overview of storytelling techniques, laws, people, beliefs, and geography, removing misunderstandings by putting details in their historical context.

Author Bio

Chris Sinkinson (MA, PhD, Bristol University) is a lecturer in Old Testament and apologetics at Moorlands College in Christchurch, England. Once employed as an archeologist, he also serves as a pastor and has been involved in Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF).

Editorial Reviews

'In an easy style, Chris Sinkinson shows how the books of the Old Testament are realistic and relevant for today. Without avoiding difficulties, he demonstrates how modern archaeological discoveries aid understanding of the Bible.'
'We live in a day when Bible knowledge cannot be assumed. In general, children are largely untaught the Bible, and those who come to faith in their teens or later (as so many do) have a major task on their hands. For such, Dr Sinkinson’s book will shine as a bright beacon. When I say that he skips his merry way through a remarkably full summary of Old Testament life, thought, history and context, I do not imply superficiality but call attention to an enviable lightness of touch and style in a book that nourishes heart and head alike.'
'I’ve suffered from some travel guides over the years. They know too much and bore you by going on and on. But Chris Sinkinson proves a wonderful guide to the long-ago world of the Old Testament: sure-footed, interesting, and dispensing up-to-date knowledge with a light and humorous touch. He’s aware of just how much we need to know to make sense of what we read. Under his expert teaching so much that seems difficult is opened up. The book is ‘simply wonderful’ - and both words are important.'
'Do you ever get the feeling that, despite all your misgivings, there is something you really must do? Reading all the Old Testament part of the Bible is like that for many people. We have no enthusiasm for it, because it is so long, complicated, out of date and beyond our understanding. Well, despair no longer, for help is at hand. Chris Sinkinson has written this marvellous book to give us all the help we need in understanding the big picture and developing a desire for the first part of the Bible. We travel through time with a Doctor who needs no Tardis to help us traverse the various places we will visit. He will show and explain to us many strange and wonderful things. So get on board and enjoy the experience of Time Travel to the Old Testament.'
'Chris Sinkinson brings to life the sights, sounds and culture of the Old Testament world, giving readers a valuable opportunity to enter into seemingly familiar stories and explore their riches in a fresh way. Informative, yet very readable, this book is a great resource for those who want to begin to study the Scriptures in context, gaining a deeper understanding of the biblical story and the roots of the Christian faith.'
“With carefully researched facts, and enjoyable wit, Sinkinson invites his readers into the real history of the Hebrew Bible. He helps followers of Jesus Christ remember that the story of Abraham, Isaac, Samson, and David is their story too; they follow the same God, and should be familiar with his work throughout history. I commend this book to you, as I believe it will add to Christians’ understanding of the world of the Old Testament, and of the God who creates and redeems our world through his Son.”
