Reviews - What do customers think about Old Testament Today?
For Beginners Jan 31, 2010
The textbook has a lot of background information and stories for those unacquainted with the old testament. For regular Bible readers it might have some new insights and facts but some of the chapters might seem a little too much of a summary. The context facts and concepts of the way the books are structured are interesting, diagrammed, and easy to grasp.
Great condition Mar 2, 2009
The book that I bought was in great condition just like it said. It came in good time and I was very pleased with my purches. I would recomend their servise it was very nice.
Practical Help For Old Testament Exegesis Oct 2, 2007
This practical guide helps the sermon exegete from a number of excellent angles. For example, the author provides a glimpse at how to arrange the minor prophets with the major prophets in the OT by timeline or by themes for preaching.
I will write more as I dig into this tool. For now, let me say that what I have seen is very helpful and I'm glad I bought a copy.
I am taking Dr. Walton for an Ancient Near Eastern course at Wheaton. I find him to be an excellent teacher. His knowledge of the subject and his style of communication help open up whole new worlds of understanding for the Old Testament. I think anything he has written is probably worth owning if you are a bible teacher or preacher.
