Reviews - What do customers think about The Old Testament Story: An Introduction?

Answer to Prayer  Feb 25, 2006
Teachers struggling to teach the strange world of the Bible to postmodern students will welcome this textbook for three reasons. First, it's easy to read. Unlike other textbooks, undergraduates will find it difficult to get lost or even sidetracked here. Second, it's wonderfully written-- creative, but not idiosyncratic; eloquent, but not fanciful; comprehensive, but never tedious. Third, this book is a cut above other Old Testament introductions because Benjamin genuinely understands and respects the faith traditions of all his students: Muslims, Christians, Jews, and none of the above. For a world in need of sane interreligious dialogue, The Old Testament Story is an answer to prayer.
