The World and the Word is a fresh introduction to the Old Testament driven largely by the fact that so much Christian preaching and teaching today increasingly ignores what is eighty percent of the Bible. Authors Eugene Merrill, Mark Rooker, and Michael Grisanti work through the world and text of the Old Testament always making three major points: • The Old Testament is a rich source of theology and doctrine that is presupposed by the New Testament. Without it, Christian theology would be seriously deficient. • Mastery of the Old Testament is crucial to an understanding of the New Testament. • The Old Testament offers, by teaching and example, practical principles of belief and behavior for contemporary times. Who God was and what He did then can be replicated in the lives of men and women today. Separating the verifiable biblical and extra-biblical data from the various interpretations of that same information, the book further shows how the Old Testament forms the platform and matrix from which sprang the life, ministry, and teachings of Jesus and the church. The World and the Word will help students see an entry point into the very heart and design of God who loves them and wishes to make them the special object of His grace.

This is an absolutely fantastic OT introduction and should be on the shelf of every preacher. Rather than a single text written in collaboration, each chapter is individually authored by the scholar best suited to the particular subject. While I wouldent agree with every conclusion in the book (in particular Grisanti's novel view of the concept of autographa and inspired textual updating)but it is overall excellent and thoroughly evangelical. One word of caution, this is the first printing, and there are some type setting and graphic errors, always double check the charts with the texts, and when possible with the journal articles they first appeared in. I expect these errors to be corrected in subsequent printings, and wholeheartedly recommend this work.

While this book is a good introduction to the Old Testament from an Evangelical perspective, it loses a star when one compares it to The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown. Despite the fact that the Old Testament is 80% of the Bible, this book is half the length of its New Testament counterpart. The summaries are much shorter and less consistent. This may be due to the fact that this is a compilation by many different authors. The New Testament version interacts strongly with skeptical scholarship, while this book generally ignores it in favor of pre-critical scholarship. I wish it had addressed modern scholarship more thoroughly, as Gleason Archer's book had.

Still, this introduction is very informative and thoroughly Evangelical, which is why it is still worth four stars.

Chapter one was the authors getting us to understand what they meant by "introduction" and "criticism". Chapters 2-4 were the settings of the Old Testament. Chapters 5-6 are how we got today's bible. Chapters 7-9 are the different methodologies of criticism. by the time you reach the chapter on Genesis you are one third of the way through the book.

The criticism parts of the book ( chapters 7-9 and several pages for each biblical book) were the parts that I did not personally care for. They seemed to bore my and did not effect my understanding of the author or authors of each biblical book. I had read the New Testament its Background and Message before this and was expecting something similar to it. They did a good job trying to bring three thousand year old information to us in an understandable way. It is a blessing to know that most of the sacred text have not changed or changed very little but not effecting the meaning.
They first laid out the verifiable data for each topic and then moved to interpretations with an emphasis on the author's interpretations.

I ordered this book because I am taking a Masters Level class. The professor wanted us to get an eBook, but I dislike eBooks because I wanted a book I can hold, outline, highlight, etc. This came in New Condition and I am glad I ordered it.

Granted this is an academic textbook, but there is much in this work for the average Christian who just wants to dig deeper into the Old Testament.

Each chapter represents a different book in the Old Testament, and is was written by a scholar who has special research knowledge on that particular book. Chapters are not as long and drawn out as many academic Old Testament survey works can be. They are semi-concise, and filled with lots of information on each book of the Old Testament.

Written from a conservative standpoint, the book takes a high view scripture and confirms the veracity of Scripture and verbal plenary inspiration.

If I had to lodge one complaint against the text, I would criticize it for a lack of illustrations, charts, graphs, maps, and pictures and such. It's New Testament counterpart is filled with such, but this volume is lacking in that area, for some strange reason. I guess the publisher must've been on a limited budget when developing this volume. LOL.

If you are getting ready to take an Old Testament survey class and this is your text, you've got something to get excited about.

EXCELLENT BEAUTIFUL THANK YOU VERY MUCH

This is an outstanding book that opens the eyes of evangelicals and critical scholars alike. It offers a well-rounded approach to the historicity of Scripture. Well done.!
Study questions elicit in-class or reverse class interactivity. Helpful info for engaging secular scholarship, archaelogists, etc. A little weak on interacting with Jewish worldviews.
