Old Testament Survey quotes the New Revised Standard Version in order to take advantage of the most recent biblical scholarship. While previously scholars thought there was a first, second and third Isaiah OTS makes a stong case for the unity of Isaiah (chapter 22). OTS follows the general modern consensus that Ecclesiastes was written 700 years after King Solomon died and thus was not written by Solomon. The comments are interesting and accompanied by photos and maps. If you enjoy this book you may also like THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE BOOK OF PROVERBS by Cody Jones. Many of the mysteries and riddles of Proverbs are explored with some surprising new answers. Among them is the identity of King Solomon's ghostwriter who was one of the "officials of Hezekiah" mentioned in Proverbs 25.1. Six translations of Proverbs in parallel aid understanding and numerous drawings and photos give you a sense of the culture of the time.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very informative book, but the authors ride the fence 31. August 2004
Von Dr. Marc Axelrod - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I thought that this was a really interesting textbook. The authors reveal the message of each Old Testament book, while discussing some of the scholarly issues surrounding each part of the Old Testament (such as the JEDP theory). Unfortunately William Lasor passed away in 1991, so Hubbard (who is dead now too) and Bush recruited six other OT scholars to complete the revision. This may be one of the reasons why the authors ride the fence on issues such as whether or not we can take the numbers in Numbers literally, the number of Isaiah's, the historical worthiness of Joshua and Jonah, and the happenings surrounding the Exodus from Egypt. The authors also seem to lean toward the book of Jonah being a parable rather than actual history, although they don't take a really strong stand on that, either.

The reviewer who wrote that this book supports the JEDP theory was mistaken: In fact, the authors predict that this theory will eventually be out of vogue with scholarship. What the authors do affirm is that Moses was originally responsible for the Pentateuch and that through the centuries, the community revised and updated it.

And contrary to an earlier reviewer, I didn't find the book tedious at all: It was very well written and very interesting throughout. I especially appreciated the articles at the end about the Authority of the Old Testament for Christians, Messianic prophecy, and the chronological puzzle.

In short, I recommend this book, only wishing that the authors would take a stand on some of the issues discussed above.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Understanding the Context 29. Juli 2007
Von mjmcc61 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
After the founding pastor of my church returned to seminary to pursue his doctoral studies, he recommended this book to better understand the theological foundation of Christianity. He wisely suggested to first read the background in chapters 44-49, followed by chapters 1-15 to get the big picture on Torah and history. Then comes the survey of The Prophets in chapters 16-30, the glorious encounter with The Writings in chapters 31-43 and finally, archeology (chapter50) and messianic prophecy (chapter 51).

Over the course of nearly a year, I read this book alongside the Old Testament. I experienced what the first Ethiopian Christian must have felt as Philip explained the book of Isaiah to him in Acts 8. These three scholarly authors helped me see things I never knew existed, which positioned the gospel in a new way.

As the hearts of the pilgrims en route to Emmaus burned within them as Jesus opened the same Scriptures to them, I gained a deeper understanding and yearning. The New Testament Letter to the Hebrews now makes much more sense, and I am better able to see how OT prophecy was fulfilled in Jesus. My subsequent visit to the Holy Land was enriched by knowing the geography, history and theology of the Old Testament that I gained from this survey.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great OT basic 27. Mai 2006
Von Brad Childs - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Without blabbering on about the evangelical theological leaning of each chapter I thought I'd write an actual review of this book rather than attempt to debate the authors' theology. First off, the book is a great survey. It is a bit short at times and a bit simplistic around some of the prophets (the sections on Jonah and Haggai for example are far too basic) but it is always fair and contains some great visual aids, charts, photographs and organization. The book is set up simplistically and is a must for first year theological students. The only real problem I have ever had with this text book is that I have never been a fan of the index (which is far too short).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good and thoughtful text 19. November 2011
Von sdl;kfjjeoimv - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I used this as a textbook for a seminary Old Testament class. I was surprised almost immediately at the non-dogmatic nature of it, and by some of the statements in it that would put many emotional conservative Christians up in arms. The authors are objective, although it is clear at the same time that they do believe the Bible. All three of the original authors went to Fuller Theological Seminary, and each of them read and approved each of the chapters that the others wrote (which I researched because of several surprisingly controversial statements--surprising for most conservative evangelicals--regarding issues, especially the inerrancy of the Bible). The couple other reviews I read are right: it looks like the authors take some Old Testament books to be allegorical rather than historical, and they present very good evidence for doing so; although as other reviewers also said, this is not stated explicitly. I would give the book 4.5 stars if possible. It's a keeper.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Useful as an introduction, clumsy kindle edition 5. November 2012
Von Ben - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, remember that this book is presented as a survey, not a theology. As such, don't expect it to come out with all guns blazing, standing up for any particular theological perspective. It is a useful introductory-level text for students starting out in OT study. It is not a devotional work. It will help inform the student of many of the live issues in OT scholarship, and point them in some useful directions for further investigation.

The kindle edition is reasonable but not great. The contents are fully indexed, including chapter sections, which is great. Diagrams, charts and tables have been scanned from a print copy and inserted clumsily and crookedly. I had trouble viewing them on my old DX so I imagine any of the standard size kindles would be even more problematic. I resorted to viewing diagrams on my PC instead. There is also the usual fashionable plethora of somewhat vaguely relevant photographs of archaeological objects scattered throughout that really just break up the text. Maps are often inserted sideways for some reason. However these problems don't make the book unreadable as in many worse kindle editions. I would recommend the book to a college level student.
