Informative, but difficult 25 Sept. 2010
By Heather Villalta - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a tough read! I needed it for a class at school and was surprised at the difficulty. But after working past that and getting to know the book's style, it got a lot easier. Lots of big words, keep a dictionary or a computer with internet access by to look up words.

The book is very informative, going a good job to accurately paint the religion of the Old Testament Israelites. It goes book by book to explain what the books taught the Hebrews, where they developed their theology out of the books, and how they viewed what they learned. Overall, I recommend it to anyone studying the Old Testament from the perspective of the Israelites.

Different and interesting 15 Feb. 2012
By Ben - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dumbrell's characteristic thesis is the continuity of a single covenant from Adam through its various expressions to culminate in Christ. He sees the covenants with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and ultimately through Christ as progressive rather than new. Although his views are considered as slightly offbeat by many more mainstream scholars, they are frequently quoted in introductory texts as an interesting variation rather than as erroneous.

Altogether a very worthwhile read that could broaden your perspective.

A lot of material crammed into a relatively small book. 18 Feb. 2014
By Ryan T. Fouts - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For what it is, it is fantastic. Converting the whole Old Testament and it's major theological themes in about 250 pages is an accomplishment. Of course it doesn't go into incredible depth on any of the issues but that isn't the point. I have found it is a great book for two primary purposes. First, it is a great review the Old Testament as I learned it in Seminary. A yearly read of this book helps keep that knowledge closer to the surface of my mind. Second, it functions like an extended footnote in a study bible. When exegeting a text I find it a great starting point to send me down a few paths of study.

Great overview of the Old Testament 9 Feb. 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have found this book to be very informative and accurate. It totally agrees with a historical Adam and Yahweh creation accounts from Scripture. I am reading it in parallel with Jim Hamilton's "God's Glory in Salvation through Judgment". It makes a great companion.
