Details


An Introduction to the Old Testament by Dillard and Longman explores the historical background, literary analysis, and theological message of each Old Testament book. Written from an evangelical perspective, it interacts with the historical-critical method in an irenic spirit.

This 2006 edition of An Introduction to the Old Testament has been revised and updated to reflect recent advances in Old Testament scholarship.Several distinctives set it apart from other introductions to the Old Testament:

  • It is thoroughly evangelical in its perspective
  • It emphasizes “special introduction”---the study of individual books
  • It interacts in an irenic spirit with the historical-critical method
  • It features points of research history and representative scholars rather than an exhaustive treatment of past scholarship
  • It deals with the meaning of each book, not in isolation but in a canonical context
  • It probes the meaning of each book in the setting of its culture

Including callouts, charts, and graphs, this text is written with an eye on understanding the nature of Old Testament historiography. An upper-level introduction that includes callouts, charts, and graphs, it offers a solid understanding of three key issues: historical background, literary analysis, and theological message.
