Reviews - What do customers think about The Old Testament (Cliffs Notes)?

Condensation of Current Views of OT  Nov 2, 1999
The Cliffs notes for the Bible is hardly an attempt to "condense the entire 39 books of the Old Testament into a little yellow book." I would not be so condesending, it does a very good job at condensing many scholars' perspectives on who's writing is included in it and the times the texts were written during; even touching on *some* pop Bible stories and the "great questions" they analyze. It introduces Bible newbies (and some oldies) to the notion the Bible wasn't written like a movie, by a few people in the span of a few months or even years; the Old Testament includes work by many people over the span of hundreds of years. Such a long time, that original documents wore out or decayed, thus needed to be copied down to a new hard copy...he briefly mentions instances of editorial modifications, he does not discuss language conversions however. I believe an overview of a very complicated piece of literature is great, before or after sitting down to read it in vast quantities. He does a good job at staying in an objective tone, not rambling on to preaching tangents. Again, this is not an attempt to condense the OT, but provide insight into who the current studied folks consider the authors and when the manuscripts were brought together.
The decline of modern man  Apr 19, 1999
Well, well, well, it looks like "Cliff" has done it again. This fabulous entity has actually managed to create a cheatbook for The Holy Bible. Amazing. What's more amazing is that people pay money for it. Honestly, does anyone actually believe that a person can condense the entire 39 books of the Old Testament into a little yellow, book, published in a series known for its inaccuracies. And this in regards a book so involved and requirous of absolute accuracy. Hmm, perhaps I too may waste my money on this psuedo-tome...maybe not. I could take some more time and thought and actually read the book, but that would require too much effort. Oh well, back to my Comic Book Classics. It's like Cliff's Notes, but with cool pictures!
The Bible is FAR more fascinating than you probably think  Oct 20, 1998
This little, straightforward text helps one appreciate one reason why the Bible is probably the most widely read book in world history: it contains the wisdom of a people who faced radically varying circumstances over hundreds and hundreds of years. Cliffs also introduces beginners the idea that the Bible is FAR more fascinating than a religious contains the gradually and sometimes radically changing thought of a people throughout the ages.
