What the Old Testament Authors Really Cared About is gospel-centered, portraying the Old Testament as the foundation for a fulfillment found in the New Testament. Each chapter is written by an Old Testament scholar who is a skilled teacher at one of the finest evangelical schools in North America and specializes in the biblical book covered. Written from an irenic, evangelical perspective, this Old Testament survey is designed to unpack what the biblical authors most intended to communicate in the Scripture that Jesus read.
This second edition of What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About is more accessible than many New Testament survey texts, with full color and photographs and to-the-point coverage of each New Testament book.
