Excellent Introduction to the Old Testament  Mar 23, 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book during my seminary days and plan to use the book for a class I will teach as an adjunct instructor at a local community college.

The book is succinct, contains valuable information, and is very reasonably priced (certainly compared to educational publishing authors who sometimes have a decidedly more secular worldview).

The book's basic format is as follows for each Old Testament book:

1. Introductory information.
2. Who wrote the book.
3. When, why, to whom was the book written.
4. Doctrinal and Christological purpose of the book.
5. What the book is about.
6. Basic content of the book with a focus on particular chapters.
7. Study questions at the end of the chapter.

The book will help anyone who wants an introduction to the Old Testament instead of an intensive detailed study. Again, the price is also very reasonable compared to other publishers.

Read and enjoy. Highly recommended!
 
Excellent, Christological, Apologetical and thorough survey  Dec 3, 1998
I have a couple of Old Testament survey books and have seen many but this is definitely the best one of them all. Dr. Geisler approaches the Old Testament from a uniquely Christ-centered point of view. The whole ouline of his survey is based on Christ the substance of the OT shadows. He divides the OT in mainly 4 parts, the books of the Law: The foundation for Christ. The books of History: The preparation for Christ. The Books of Poetry: THe aspiration for Christ and the books of Prophecy the expectation of Christ. He follows the same excellent system of studying each book starting with the author (here he uses his excellent apologetics skills), then when they were written, to whom and also the historical, doctrinal and Christological purpose of the book. Thereafter he divides the book into main parts and begin his systematic survey of it. I highly recommend this book to any Bible student and also to the average Christian seeking to obtain a good understanding of the OT and it's message for us today.
