Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction To The Old Testament Historical Books?
Excellent resource Apr 5, 2007
This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in research and teaching on the Old Testament (OT). It starts off with an introduction to OT literature then in each chapter gives historical information and theological analysis of all of the OT historical books. If you have ever found it useful to go to a commentary to get an overview of an OT book you will find this book doubly useful. Howard is a good writer to boot. Highly recommended for bible students, pastors, teachers, and anyone else interested in studying the bible in depth.
The best book ever on the Historical Books! May 13, 1999
David Howard has compiled a great review of the Old Testament Historical books, probably the best work ever on this subject! Howard is lucid, scholarly, and exegetical; this book is a necessity for any student of the Old Testament! He does a great job on outlining, interpreting, and applying these books; he also has a great introductory chapter about the nature of narrative material. No one is left in the dark about the various aspects of the Historical books after reading this! He also includes plenty of detail and indices for the reader. This book is truly great!
