Old Testament History was written with one intended purpose—to enable every Christian to become a better Bible student. Professor Wilbur Fields has written an insightful and challenging study that illuminates God’s one and only plan evident in the Old Testament—to reconcile a people for himself through the coming Messiah.
Old Testament History was first published in August of 1967. In the ensuing decades Old Testament History has established a reputation for strong exegesis and soul-searching insight. Adopted by Bible Colleges across the United States as the main commentary on the Old Testament narrative, Old Testament History has become a favorite with professors as well as students. Rewritten, expanded, and updated, this edition of Old Testament History stands ready to instruct a new generation.
