READING THE OLD TESTAMENT, now in its third edition, has proven itself as a guide that successfully teaches students how to read the Hebrew Bible and how to go about mining the Biblical text for literary, historical, and thematic meaning. The book actively applies recent literary, rhetorical, and structural studies that shed light on art, design, coherence, characterization, theme, and other literary features of the Hebrew Bible. An engaging and instructive CD-ROM also comes packaged free with the text. This innovative and much acclaimed resource--developed by the author himself--includes the entire text of the Bible, the entire text of the book, and an interactive Study Guide. In both the book and on the CD-ROM, Bandstra demonstrates how knowledge of ancient culture, religion, and history is essential for interpreting Biblical texts. While history, archaeology, and extra-biblical documents are heavily utilized, they are presented only as they apply directly to specific Biblical texts.
