Publisher's Summary

The purpose of studying the Old Testament is to understand God and his redemptive work more fully. However, this goal is complicated by the fact that it was transmitted through a very different language and culture from our own.

A Survey of the Old Testament provides an indispensable guide for undergraduate students and other listeners by exploring the literary, historical, and theological issues behind the Old Testament and its various books. For each Old Testament book, the survey addresses background information, purpose, message, structure, and major themes. Chapters introducing each major section of the Old Testament are included, as are chapters dealing with issues of interpretation, geography, archaeology, history, formation of the Old Testament canon, and the Old Testament's relationship to the New Testament.

(This product is an audio lecture by the authors recorded before a live audience and is based on the text of the book A Survey of the Old Testament.)

Pure Gold! Audible

This is the second audible book I bought. The OT is surveyed in a wondrous way and really opens your eyes to the wisdom of God and his revelation of himself to us. I highly recommend the audible version

Matching the actual book

I love to learn of the bible and the discussion was good.

My problem is the audio books is not the actual book being read which is why I purchased the audio book. I wanted to hear the text of the book as well as have my book open to follow along but none of the book was being read so I could not do so.

I thought the audio book versions of a book is suppose to be someone reading the book so that you can listen to the book when you can't open the text because you are on the go or to be able to follow the reading with your book in hand.

Kind of disappointed in that area but the discussion was regarding the specific chaper just not the actual text.

,Well-done and extremely thoughtful

This is a beautiful and thoughtful survey of the Old Testament. Whether for catholics protestants or orthodox christians, this is extremely valuable and open to all. And maybe most importantly those who are uncertain of their beliefs.

Biased

Wasn't what I was expecting. Opinions and biases where heard throughout the recording. I was expecting more detail of the content.

Not an audio of the actual book

This is an audio recording of lectures that follow the book chapters so they are not reading the actual book text.
