In The Old Testament: A Historical, Theological, and Critical Introduction, respected Old Testament and ancient Near East scholar Dr. Richard Hess offers a comprehensive introduction to the Old Testament that is accessibly written and informed by the latest biblical scholarship. Hess hits all of the bases with equanimity and poise, forwarding outlines and summaries of Old Testament content and overarching theological themes, as well as an introduction to the study of the academic discipline and assistance with regard to complex critical and interpretive issues—against its ancient Near Eastern context, by New Testament writers, before the modern period, by higher criticism, in literary perspective, and more.
Twenty maps, ninety photos, sidebars, and recommendations for further study add to the book's usefulness for students. Resources for professors are available through Baker Academic's Textbook eSources. Designed to meet the needs of the broad variety of students who come to study the Old Testament at a seminary or graduate level, Hess's groundbreaking text assumes no prior knowledge of the Scriptures while still proving an invaluable resource for any serious reader.
