Review quote

"One of the best introductions to the Hebrew bible available today to theological students. [It] offers a clear theological and historical presentation of the history of Israel. The easy narrative style and the insightful presentation of the content and message of the biblical books stimulate students to read the book and participate in a dialogue with the writers. I have used People of the Covenant for more than ten years as a primary text in my classes and I welcome the arrival of a fourth edition."--Claude F. Mariottini, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary--Lombar"A useful introductory text for students who wish to pursue a critical approach to the Hebrew Bible. The authors have written clearly but cogently. The glossary and bibliographies and other suggested readings will prove to be very helpful. The fourth edition of this work reveals that it has been carefully updated."--John F. Craghan, St. Norbert Collegeshow more
