The SPCK Old Testament Introduction Collection offers those embarking on a study of the Old Testament the tools to plot a course to the eternal truth lying within its ancient pages. In each of the three volumes, David F. Hinson provides a straightforward introduction to a different aspect of Old Testament study. History of Israel gives an account of the history of the Jews. The volume presents their relationship with God and the cultures around them, and investigates how both affected the Jews’ movements through history. The Books of the Old Testament explores the OT books themselves; their authoring, their canonization, and their present form. Theology of the Old Testament brings the light of the New Testament to bear on the OT books, showing that the ultimate end of OT theology is Christ Himself. Each volume is illustrated, and includes maps, time charts, photographs, and suggestions for further discussion and study.
The SPCK Old Testament Introduction Collection is part of SPCK’s International Study Guides series of books. Written by scholars with experience of the worldwide Church, the acclaimed Guides combine trustworthy scholarship with clarity, simplicity and non-technical language. Ecumenical in authorship and outlook, the Guides are ideal for first-year theology students, Bible study groups, multi-cultural classes, people for whom English is a second language, and anyone who needs a sound but accessible guide to the Bible and theology.
