Concise yet accurate 1 Feb. 2000
By Jamen McGranahan - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Old Testament -- or rather, the Hebrew Bible -- is an ancient text written by ancient people. Over the years, much has been discovered about it through various means, such as archaeology, form criticism, source criticism, etc. There is now a vast array of information, going from one extreme to another. This book, written by the Achtemeier's, does a great job condensing this information into a readable, understandable, yet controversial book. It makes people think about things such as the Hebrews had NO concept of history per se. They didn't write the Scriptures for history sake. They did it for faith's sake, with God working through the events that occured. As a result, these very faith Scriptures were the very ones our own Jesus of Nazareth used. Great presentation and great source for teaching an introductory course on the Old Testament!

Why Write A Book about the Bible When You Don't Believe It? 15 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was very excited to read this book, then wondered why I bothered. It is shallow; a mere summary of the Old Testament with the supposed reason of showing how the New Testament builds on the Old. They call much of the Old Testament "ancient legends" and "incomplete myths." They seem to be suprised that Abraham is a historical character. Then they proceed to say that the Church has replaced Israel. This book will probably end up in my trash can; paper shouldn't have been wasted on it.
