Packed with big truth, this little book on the Old Testament can be read in roughly one hour, making it a book you'll actually read. Mark Driscoll, one of America's most influential pastors, answers the nine most common questions about the Old Testament-questions about authorship, what Jesus says about the Old Testament, how the Old Testament books were chosen as Scripture, and more-and gives an overview of the various kinds of Old Testament literature. Two appendices include a comprehensive list of further resources and a checklist for reading through the entire Old Testament.
On the Old Testament is part of a series of inexpensive and accessible books that give clear, biblical answers to difficult theological questions and controversies. Through this series readers will get a solid and simple introduction to the Bible by investing just a little time. Praise for the A Book You'll Actually Read series:
