Item description for Studying the Old Testament: A Companion [With CDROM] by Rhonda Burnette-Bletsch...
Overview An extraordinarily well-written introduction and guide to reading and interpretating the Hebrew Bible, with a wealth of valuable supplemental material on CD
Publishers Description To study the Old Testament is to embark on a daunting expedition for today's students, most of whom have little or no prior knowledge of the Bible or the field of biblical studies. Rhonda Burnette-Bletsch's Studying the Old Testament: A Companion introduces major issues and methods of reading the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible at a level appropriate for undergraduates or study groups. Unlike typical introductory textbooks that encourage memorization, this book adopts an inductive approach that teaches students to think critically about the Bible. Readers encounter the biblical text firsthand through guided exercises that allow them to make their own observations before they are introduced to scholarly theories. Burnette-Bletsch's clear, friendly guide to the biblical literature is supplemented by a CD-ROM that contains a variety of resources that enhance the student's experience and comprehension. In addition to guided exercises, the CD contains charts, maps, bibliographies of book, video, and internet resources, review questions and self-tests, lists of important terms, a glossary, links to ancient primary texts that offer striking parallels to the Bible, and concise but substantive discussions of topics that range from explorations of ongoing biblical research to fascinating points of contact between biblical texts and contemporary issues.

Reviews - What do customers think about Studying the Old Testament: A Companion?
Excellent conpanion work for Old Testament Bible Classes Aug 17, 2009
The teacher will find Rhonda Burnette Bletsch's work to be a highly readable overview and introduction to the Old Testament. With its written text and handy CD-ROM it offers exercises, maps, charts, and simple exams to help the student understand and remember the material covered in the class. I highly recommend the book for use as a companion and guide for persons teaching the Old Testament in a church or class where it is possible for students and teachers to discuss and question the Hebrew Scriptures.

personally think it should be removed from all professors book list for there is too much which is not germane to subject projected as to contents of material in the book and questions and statements set forth in authors intent...
