Product Description

An accessible, full-color OT survey textbook focusing on the message of each book

Written from an irenic, evangelical perspective, this Old Testament survey is designed to unpack what the biblical authors most intended to communicate in the Scripture that Jesus read. As the corresponding volume to the previously published What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About, it is well-suited for use in a college, seminary, or church context. Students of the Bible will find this full-color textbook accessible and engaging.

What the Old Testament Authors Really Cared About is gospel-centered, portraying the Old Testament as the foundation for a fulfillment found in the New Testament. Each chapter is written by an Old Testament scholar who is a skilled teacher at one of the finest evangelical schools across North America and specializes in the biblical book covered.

Readers will find:
  • Introductory issues (who, when, where, why) condensed to one-page snapshots of essential information at the beginning of each chapter
  • The clarity of the biblical message enhanced through nearly two hundred high-resolution photographs, over eighty charts and tables, and twelve color maps
  • Very readable text, appropriate for broad audiences
  • A format simpler and intentionally shorter than many other surveys, making it a very manageable textbook for a single semester Old Testament survey course or a useful guide to accompany devotional reading of Scripture

How could I not enjoy a book in which the editor says 'is designed as a springboard for delight in God - the supreme Savior, Sovereign, and Satisfier of the world'? Jason DeRouchie has a sure hand when it comes to guiding a team of scholars. The aroma of his God-centered, Christ-exalting commitments permeate this survey...I would happily put this in the hand of every church member.
-John Piper

Finally! An introduction to the only Bible Jesus had that tries to makes sense of each book by highlighting its life-giving message. This volume is invitingly organized and composed, and delightfully illustrated.
-Daniel Block,
Wheaton College

No ordinary survey! This clear, concise, and easy-to-understand text will help church folks and serious students alike grasp the contribution of the Old Testament to the Bible as a single text with a unified plot structure that finds ultimate fulfillment in Jesus Christ. Beautiful pictures and helpful diagrams aid communication in a powerful way. I heartily recommend it!
-Peter Gentry,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

This is one of the most user-friendly surveys of the Old Testament - Jesus' Bible - that I have seen...I highly recommend this book.
-David Howard,
Bethel Seminary

This clear and attractive book combines academic rigor with devotional warmth...The authors have taught Old Testament courses many times, and they know how to connect with students.
-Andy Naselli,
Bethlehem College and Seminary

This is truly a remarkable resource for the student of Scripture...Unlike your standard (and all too often stodgy) survey of the Old Testament, this volume is written in a vibrant and engaging style and is visually stunning. But best of all, it is distinctively Christ-centered. This will be the book to which I send all future inquisitive students of God's Word.
-Sam Storms,
Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, OK

This book sets new standards for an Old Testament survey. The Christ-centered emphasis is a breath of fresh air. The canonical theology is deep and rich. It is exegetically faithful. The user-friendly features are not just easy to follow; they flat-out arrest your attention at times. In a crowded field of competitors, it is a standout. I commend it highly and plan to turn to it often.
-Jason Meyer,
Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN
