Review:

"I have been using Understanding the Old Testament as a required text with college sophomores, and as a recommended aid for M. A. students, for many years now.  The high level of scholarship and writing, and the clarity with which complex material is organized for the students, are its two main attractions for me.  Students appreciate the help of a clear text that guides them through a large volume of complex material.  I appreciate the way the textbook gives the students a kind of road-map, so that I can spend class time on other things."--Mary Callaway, Fordham University

 

"Since I have been using this book, student complaints are down.  It has also given me the freedom to concentrate on the issues of primary interest to me because it covers the material so well...The style, level of detail, examples and so on interest my students, and even those students with little background can follow it"--Harvey Hill, Berry College
