More and more the Old Testament is being taken seriously as the sacred history that discloses God's revelation of himself to man; a record not only of what God has done in the past, but the divine plan for mankind's future as well. For Prof. Samuel Schultz it is as important now to let the Old Testament constitute the ultimate authority as it did for the Jews and Christians in New Testament times. Allowing for errors of transmission, he says the words of the biblical writers teach the truth without error. So he gives us a survey of the entire Old Testament, relating archeology, history and other fields of study to his purpose. But through it all he lets the Bible speak for itself. This is a most comprehensive and thorough going introduction to the Old Testament, one which serious students and Bible classes will value highly as they search the scriptures for their eternal meaning.
