Overview

Introducing the Old Testament Books: A Thorough but Concise Introduction for Proper Interpretation by Paul D. Weaver

Many introductions to the Old Testament are either too simple, not providing all the necessary information, or overly complicated and written at a level out of the reach of an average person with no seminary training. This work is neither. The author is thorough, providing over 500 footnotes for further study and additional historical information, but at a level that is understandable, and in a concise manner.

As expected,in this work Weaver answers such important questions as:

-who wrote the book?
-when was it written?
-where was it written?
-why was it written?
-to whom was it written?

Weaver also provides a convincing biblical response to those critical of the Scriptures, answering such questions as:

-how was the Pentateuch (Genesis-Deuteronomy) transmitted?
-who was the Pharaoh of the exodus?
-when did the exodus occur?
-are the census numbers recorded in the book of Numbers accurate?
-is the story of Jonah historical?
-is there more than one author of the book of Isaiah?

Additionally, the author highlights the most important theological themes found within each respective book of the Old Testament.

One of the great features of this book, not found in most other introductions, are the descriptions of archaeological discoveries (both sites and artifacts), which affirm the historicity of the Scriptures. Such an addition, will build your faith and strengthen your confidence in the inspired Word.

In this work, Weaver demonstrates that he is passionate about, and committed to, providing high quality resources, at an affordable cost within the reach of anyone serious about studying God's Word.
