Companion to the Old Testament

Introduction, Interpretation, Application
  • By Douglas Earl, Ryan P. O''Dowd, Hywel Clifford
Product Description
This companion provides intelligent enrichment for encounters with the Old Testament, the first part ofthe Christian Bible. There are chapters on its five main sections: the Pentateuch, the Historical Books, Poetryand Wisdom, the Prophets, and the Apocrypha.

Each of the core chapters covers three areas:

*An introduction to the general significance of each section in its ancient context.

*A survey of major ways these sacred texts have been interpreted in the global history of Christianity

*Suggestions for how its texts apply to Christian ministry and mission today

These areas are often treated separately by scholars, but this companion usefully offers an integrated overview of these areas that will inform and inspire, and serve the interests and needs of students and general readers alike.
