    The Old Testament - written in ancient Israel by many different authors over the course of a thousand years - has had more meaning to more people than any other book the world has known. In a series of 24 lively lectures, Professor Levine explores selected passages from the texts known as the Old Testament, the Hebrew Bible, and the Tanakh, revealing how fresh research and findings from scholars of archaeology, cross-cultural studies, and comparative religion can deepen your understanding.

    Jacobus says: "A critical but inspiring 'walk thru the' Bible"

    What disappointed you about The Old Testament?

    Very difficult to follow. There is no text to follow. What a shame; a brilliant speaker, the greatest story of all time and no text. Never again with the Great Courses. Almost a complete waste of time.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Amy-Jill Levine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Professor Levine is absolutely first-rate. A great scholar. But it is extremely difficult to follow without some form of text.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointed
