1 Review
James Efird has put together a simple and direct introduction to the Old Testament. "The Old Testament Writings" emphasizes the faith dimension of the Old Testament. The literary, critical, and historical problems of the Olde Testament are discussed but only to provide help in understanding the faith of the Bible. This very enjoyable and readable book offers a step-by-step approach to comprehending the Old Testament. Highly informative. Designed for the lay reader, the Bible student, seminary introductory, courses, and church schools.

This is a complementary text to Efird's "The New Testament Writings." Both volumes offer a comprehensive understanding of the Bible. A valuable set of resources for education, growth, and faith.
