Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Deals with the background of the Bible but focuses on the geographical setting, the pre-history, the social and political history as well as the story of the ideas which grew up out of this culture.

From the Back Cover

The New English Bible has benefited not only from advances in the understanding of ancient languages and discoveries of new manuscripts and methods, but also from the recent growth in knowledge of the social and political history of the biblical period and the development of new ways of evaluating prehistory.

In "Understanding the Old Testament" the essentials of the background and context of the Old Testament and Apocrypha are set out as concisely as possible to enable the reader to understand the meaning and significance of much that can only be appreciated fully with the help of this background material. The geographical setting, the prehistory, the social and political history, as well as the story of the ideas which grew in this context are all described. The account of the growth of the Old Testament and Apocrypha from the literary point of view is told in the companion volume, "The Making of the Old Testament."
