Designed for readers with little or no knowledge of the Old Testament, this invaluable sourcebook focuses on the canon's content in a highly readable and accessible presentation. The book provides complete coverage of background detail as it follows the story told by the Old Testament. It examines the separate biblical books and illustrates the literary structure of each of the books of the Protestant Christian Old Testament and the Hebrew Bible. The volume addresses the Bible and those who study it, the geographical and historical setting for the old testament prior to 1200 B.C.E., Israel's beginning and people, Israel's time of glory, the history of the Northern Kingdom, Rehoboam to Hezekiah (922-687 B.D.E.), Manasseh to Zedekiah, the exile and the postexilic period, wise men and psalm singers and the time of silence.
