Item description for Old Testament Today: A Journey from Original Meaning to Contemporary Significance by John H. Walton & Andrew E. Hill...

This full-color textbook shows college students how the Old Testament uniquely reveals the God of the universe.

Publishers Description
Proven three-tiered approach and a wealth of full-color images help readers connect the Old Testament with today s world. Old Testament Today is unique among Old Testament surveys. It not only provides an orientation to the world of the Old Testament but also builds a bridge between the original audience and modern readers, demonstrating why the ancient message is important for faith and life today. Old Testament Today goes beyond basic content to help students understand what the Scriptures mean and how to apply them personally. Similar to the acclaimed NIV Application Commentary, this text takes the reader section by section through the Old Testament using a progressive, three-step format: * Original Meaning presents the details of the content, focusing on the story line, historical background, and literary information that address the original setting and audience. * Bridging Contexts focuses on theological perspectives and on issues of the author s purpose and the universal message of the text, building a bridge between the original audience and today s audience. * Contemporary Significance develops an understanding of the relevance of the Old Testament writings to today s Christian, showing how they can be applied in personal faith and practice. The image-rich full-color design gives Old Testament Today a strong visual appeal. A wide array of charts, sidebars, illustrations, photos, and supplemental materials complement the body of the text, helping students to easily comprehend the literature, theology, and history of the Old Testament."

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.
