Item description for An Introduction to the Old Testament Poetic Books (Moody Introduction to the OT) by C. Hassell Bullock...

Discover some of the most potent literature of human history by taking an in-depth look into the poetic books of the Old Testament. Understand the wisdom and songs of Israel, which contain universal themes that cut across the boundaries of time and geography to include the entire human race.

Publishers Description

The poetic books of the Old Testament--Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon--are often called humankind's reach toward God. The other books of the Old Testament picture God's reach toward man through the redemptive story. Yet these five books reveal the very heart of men and women struggling with monumental issues such as suffering, sin, forgiveness, joy, worship, and the passionate love between a man and woman.

C. Hassell Bullock, a noted Old Testament scholar, delves deep into the hearts of the five poetic books, offering readers helpful details such as harmeneutical considerations for each book, theological content and themes, detailed analysis of each book, and cultural perspectives.

Hebrew is a language of "intrinsic musical quality that naturally supports poetic expression," says Bullock in his introduction. That poetic expression comes from the heart of the Old Testament writers and reaches all of us exactly where we are in our own struggles and joys.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Introduction to the Old Testament Poetic Books?

An excellent intro to Poetry and Wisdom in the Bible  Nov 16, 2004
Mr. Bullock's book is a perfect addition for any student of the Bible. His work is thorough and fair. He considers numerous opinions about authorship, canonicty and interpretation presenting them competently and without bias, then explains his reasons for his perspective, which usually lands in the evangelical camp. He also does fine work presenting cognate literature from other ancient cultures. This book can be used as a college textbook or even in seminaries and graduate schools. For new students, it will take some work, but that work will be well rewarded. Any reader will gain insight into the five books of the Bible - Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs and Job - covered in depth in this fine work.
Now a classic work for the study of the Prophets.  Nov 20, 1998
Bullock's Introduction has now become a classic work in the field of the biblical Prophets. It covers each book of the Old Testament prophets in a thorough and consistent mannor. The author provides a wealth of background material and addresses problematic questions or texts as they relate to each prophet. Outlines for each book are provided as well as a brief summary of the message and key theological points. The book is written from an evangelical perspective, certainly a strength, as it pays careful attention to the biblical text and the intent of the prophet. This is an excellent introduction and summary to the prophets and highly recommended for any who want to further their knowledge about the prophets and recent areas of discussion.
