    Background. For Christians, the Old Testament provides a foreshadowing of the larger metanarrative that is fulfilled in the New Testament. From this perspective, the Old Testament is a historical narrative that begins with Creation, describes the Fall of mankind and the formation of the people of Israel, traces that people’s relationship with God over 1, years, and ends with the. - It probes the meaning of each book in the setting of its culture. With an eye on understanding the nature of the Old Testament historiography, An Introduction to the Old Testament offers the reader a solid understanding of three key issues: historical background, literary analysis, and theological message.4/5(1).

    John Drane's survey textbook provides an engaging general introduction to the persons, events, and cultural context of the Old Testament. Arranged historically, Drane's text takes readers through the books of the Old Testament with numerous special articles which spell out in greater detail both historical and interpretative controversies that figure significantly in contemporary scholarship. His book, Introducing the Old Testament Story, reveals that passion to connect modern readers to God’s story, that is, “God’s covenant commitment to redeem and restore a lost and broken world through his people, Israel.” Dr. Brisben presents the cultural and historical contexts and chiastic structures to elucidate the Old Testament story.

    Each chapter orients readers to the Old Testament book or books under consideration, outlining historical and cultural background, literary features, main characters, and structure. Throughout these discussions—of the Torah, the historical books, the prophets, and the poetry—Hubbard and Dearman also identify and trace key theological themes. With Introducing the Old Testament, two able and respected OT scholars have teamed up to produce a readable and accessible introduction to the OT. Using the analogy of the first swimming lessons that enable someone to move to being able to swim themselves, Hubbard and Dearman’s aim is to provide guidance in the basics so as “to prepare readers to take the plunge into the deep end—the OT.
