Old Testament Introduction

A Survey of Old Testament Introduction

by Gleason Archer (Note: Dr. Archer died April 27, 2004 at the age of 87)

Old Testament Introduction

[FYI, the term ‘introduction’ in this context means it addresses issues of authorship, date, and origin of the text. It does not mean ‘for beginners.’]

An excellent, solid conservative introduction. This is Gleason Archer’s specialty and he pulls no punches. A noted linguist, Archer worked on the NASV and NIV. Comprehensive seminary–level text with solid scholarship, but Archer is polemic at points. Provides a wealth of information not often encountered. If you are tired of taking a beating with most Old Testament introductions, this will be welcome relief. Discusses the inspiration of Scripture and defends inerrancy.
