Overview

Many people consider the Old Testament to be complicated, mysterious, and far removed from current thought and life. A textbook on the Old Testament should not deepen these attitudes, but work to replace them. They Spoke from God addresses the writings of the Old Testament in simple language and in a personal style that speaks directly to the reader. It not only provides the student with a basic grasp of relevant passages, it also relates the biblical text to historical, theological, and ethical questions. Most importantly, They Spoke from God demonstrates how the various portions of the Old Testament fit together with one another, held together by the story of a God at work to redeem his people.
