9780062516749: The Old Testament Speaks

Here is a freshly updated edition of one of the most popular introductions to the history and literature of the Old Testament. The Old Testament Speaks offers a clear picture of the archaeological, geographical, historical, and linguistic dimensions of God's covenant with his people from the time of Abraham to the coming of the Messiah. The Old Testament Speaks examines the historical and religious life of the Hebrews, integrates the development of non-hebraic cultures with conventional biblical history, and reviews the best modern scholarly research in placing the Scriptures in their Near Eastern setting.Samuel J. Schultz emphasizes the importance of letting the Scriptures tell their own stories. He makes selective use of the best and latest literature in Old Testament studies, and offers a balanced perspective. Schultz sifts the facts and follows them to their inevitable conclusions. However, when the evidence is not definitive, he exercises caution, presenting his own interpretation as only one of several possible views. Schultz also appraises the impact of recent archaeological and historical findings on the understanding of key portions of the Old Testament.The Old Testament Speaks contains all the relevant material -- biblical and nonbiblical -- necessary for classroom use or personal study of the Old Testament. Schultz provides outlines that reflect the historical background and summarize the contents of each biblical book, as well as charts and maps to help visualize the biblical narrative. He has also revised and updated the biblio-graphies at the end of each chapter.

Review:

"A positive proclamation of the spirit and purpose of the Old Testament." -- "Christianity Today""Few books in the area of Biblical studies have proven themselves to be of such worth and value. What makes this book so attractive is the straightforward clarity and beauty of Schultz's presentation of the message. He has been able to show the contemporary significance of the Old Testament. All readers of the Old Testament will want to havea copy of "The Old Testament Speaks" handy for their own personal reading pleasure of the wonderful gospel found in the Old Testament." -- Dr. Walter C. Kaiser Jr., President and Coleman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary""The Old Testament Speaks" is a book for the thoughtful layman, the preaching pastor, and the classroom instructor. It's dependable in its facts and interpretations and helpful in its explanations and outlines. Dr. Schultz emphasizes the practical message of the text and carefullybalances solid academics with spiritual insights." -- Warren W. Wiersbe, author and conference speaker"For thirty years, I have used this book. It is still the best presentation ofthe Old Testament that accepts it as the Word of God. Schultz gives adequate space to archeological finds and extensive coverage in both outline form and narrative, yet it is comprehensive, not overly academic, and very readable for university freshmen and lay people." -- Dr. Wilbur Glenn Williams, Associate Professor of Biblical Literature and Archaeology, Indiana Wesleyan University
