Reviews - What do customers think about A Theological Introduction to the Old Testament: 2nd Edition?

Excellent!!  Mar 25, 2008
I wish I had the words to write about how this book has enriched my learning and growth. I don't so I'll just say this is an EXCELLENT addition to my library.
This Textbook  Sep 24, 2007
Using as an OT studies text. Well done treatment of theological aspects of OT. Am enjoying using.
Birch, Brueggemann, and Fretheim offer a fresh approach  May 19, 2007
This work is a seminary-level introduction to the Old Testament that bridges the gap between the academic and the confessional study of the Bible. Birch's much-needed approach is founded upon historical-critical scholarship, but it focuses primarily upon the biblical text as theological witness. Welcomed attention is given to how the OT functions theologically for the contemporary community of faith. This book's most likely place will be as a supplementary textbook that is used alongside a more traditional introductory text.
Birch, Bruggeman, Fretheim and Petersen  May 7, 2007
This is an excellent OT theology. I would recommend this to any beginning student of the OT.
Old Testament Voices for our Times  Mar 9, 2007
For the person interested in relating the message of the Old Testament scriptures to present day issues, especially in the area of social justice, this volume offers provocative insights based on sound scholarship. It kick-starts further independent thinking on these issues.
