Book Information

Finally, there is a college-level survey of Old Testament content that is as engaging and user-friendly as it is informative. Encountering the Old Testament is a survey unlike other surveys. In addition to first-rate scholarship, this textbook boasts full-color photographs, sidebars containing supplemental information, chapter summaries, study questions, an instructors manual and many other helpful features.

Also included with the book is an interactive CD-ROM (both Mac- and Windows-compatible) that features interactive review questions, supplemental information, photos and video clips of Bible lands, a glossary of key terms from the text, and video interviews with the authors concerning various topics. The CD is designed for students to use outside the classroom in order to reinforce the content of the textbook.

In addition to the book and CD-ROM, there is also available for the professor, free of charge, a floppy disk containing transparency masters, test questions, media resources, and lecture ideas. This textbook is part of the Encountering Biblical Studies series. A companion volume entitled Readings from the Ancient Near East: Primary Sources for Old Testament Study will complete the educational package.
