Reading the Old Testament: An Introduction - Lawrence Boadt - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Reading the Old Testament:

A guide to reading history's most popular (and influential) book.

My favorite Lawrence Boadt quote from the book:

"Nobody thinks or writes without being part of a culture that has its own ideas and ways of doing things."

Questions to ponder while reading Lawrence Boadt's Reading The Old Testament:

How do you view the Old Testament?

Have you ever read the entire thing?

My review of Reading the Old Testament:

A guide into the intricacies of the Old Testament.

Well-researched and thoroughly cross-referenced.

An engaging read, although it's far from a casual read.
