Introducing the Old Testament

Synopsis

Traditional study of the Old Testament has involved careful analysis of individual books in order to discover their component sources. Outlining some alternatives to this method--yet retaining the values of the conventional technique--this study considers the importance of sociology and anthropology, of liberation and feminist perspectives, and of literary criticism to provide a unique guide for those approaching the Old Testament for the first time, and for those who are disenchanted with staid forms of biblical analysis.
