We have needed such a book for a long time. Books on the Old Testament are numerous and notoriously difficult to recommend to the average customer. They are apt to be too deep, too conservative, too orthodox, too old, too big, too expensive. Here is one any shop can proudly endorse. It does not claim to be original yet it is fresh and honest and will provide a new approach for any earnest reader. Through the eyes of the prophets the Old Testament comes to life and meaning penetrates its most difficult books. Add this to the list of staple religious stock and mention it to laymen and clergy. Schools will find it an excellent text to use along with Bible Study courses.
