Written like this, what came out most clearly was how bloodthirsty the OT is, whole tribes and cities slaughtered 'at the word of God'. Sadly, nothing much has changed.
I did get rather confused in places, as the narrative seemed to jump back and forth, but maybe thats how it is in the original. Characters seemed to appear without explanation; for example Daniel went to Babylon and did his familiar deeds, but who was he, was he selected?
Can't tell if anything is incorrect or missed, but in an overview it doesn't matter too much. To use as a study aid it really needs at least a timeline, showing e.g. which prophet lived with which king. I found the chapter summaries got in the way and skipped them.
Not really impressed with the NT narrative, maybe because the stories are more familiar and can recall actual passages, but for OT it is a useful reference.
I was hoping to find 'answers' but just ended up being more confused.
I really tried to believe what I was reading, but more and more, it sounded like 'fairy tales'. I suppose it comes down to faith in the end, but if you are looking for confirmation or clarification, this probably isn't the book for you.
