God, Israel, and the World

Many introductions to the Old Testament target beginning Bible students and general readers, but few actually hit the mark.  This richly illustrated volume contains black and white photos and provides complete coverage of the Old Testament’s history, archaeology, geography, institutions, texts, and major themes – all at a level immediately accessible to everyone.  Designed to be maximally informative and easily navigable, this book incorporates sidebars and fact boxes throughout the text as well as thought-provoking questions for discussion.  The core of the book, however, is a set of chapters exploring central biblical themes, including God, creation, human suffering, ethics, prophecy, worship, law, and the meaning of God’s covenant with Israel.
