Far from a sterile, detached introduction, this book is like being in the classroom with a seasoned teacher. To face the Old Testament with Goldingay is to face questions the questions that we put to the text and that the text puts to us. Here is an invitation to a conversation with thought-provoking biblical writings under the guidance of a wise mentor. --Brad E. Kelle, professor of Old Testament and Hebrew, Point Loma Nazarene University"
"When scouting textbooks, I worry that students will read the textbook instead of the Bible. Not this book! John Goldingay wants 'to help you study Scripture for yourself, ' and he does this deftly with the enthusiasm of a master teacher, the knowledge of a first-rate scholar and the faith of a dedicated Christian. This handbook is accessible, readable, insightful, faithful and enjoyable. Don't let a day go by without delving into the Old Testament with this book close at hand. --Jack Levison, W. J. A. Power Professor of Old Testament Interpretation and Biblical Hebrew, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University"
"An Introduction to the Old Testament: Exploring Text, Approaches Issues by John Goldingay is an excellent guide through the deep trenches of the Old Testament Scriptures. Goldingay is a seasoned professor and has provided the reader with a welcomed balance between the 'need to know' information of the Old Testament and the 'want to know' information. . . . If you are a teacher and/or professor and are considering the use of An Introduction to the Old Testament as a textbook, I couldn't think of a better resource to engage your students and cultivate conversation in your classroom than this. It comes highly recommended. --John Kight, Sojourner Theology, November 12, 2015
At last, an introduction to the Old Testament that not only covers all the key components of most OT courses but also helps students to think for themselves about key issues of interpretation.Built on decades of studying and teaching the Old Testament, this introduction is unusual in setting out background information, noting interpretative possibilities, raising questions and suggesting approaches. It operates more like a workbook, with the aim of encouraging students to investigate the Old Testament, both critically and prayerfully, for themselves.
