A Survey of the Old Testament has been an invaluable resource for students, scholars, and laymen who want to understand the conservative position on Old Testament and are not afraid to examine critical views.
Recently updated with four color charts, maps and graphics, Gleason Archer’s classic volume approaches the study of the Old Testament from both the general and specific point of view. Dr. Archer first addresses issues over which many scholars debate, including:
¿ Inspiration of the Scriptures and test of canonicity
¿ Understanding the manuscript record
¿ Higher criticism, including the authorship of the Pentateuch
¿ Lower (textual) criticism
Then Archer dissects each book of the Old Testament individually. You will thoroughly cover issues such as:
¿ Biblical creationism
¿ Noah’s ark and the flood
¿ Alleged language, style, and theme differences
¿ Disputed dates of several prophetic books
This useful tool has been translated into seven languages and highly applauded in the academic community among Christian leaders.
