A Survey of Old Testament Introduction

Front Cover
Moody Publishers, 2007 - Religion - 510 pages

In this revised volume, Gleason Archer's original study is updated by author Dillon Burroughs. It approaches the study of the Old Testament from both the general and the specific point of view. Dealing first with issues over which many scholars debate, Archer offers evidence to support the conservative view of canonicity, historicity, inspiration, textual problems, and higher criticism. The second section dissects each book of the Old Testament individually. Archer thoroughly covers such issues as biblical creationism, Noah's Ark and the flood, authorship, chronology, alleged language, style, and theme differences. A Survey of Old Testament Introduction is invaluable to students, scholars, and laymen who want to understand the conservative position of Old Testament issues and are not afraid to examine critical views.
