For nearly two hundred years a sceptical brand of Old Testament criticism has largely held sway in our universities and divinity halls; it 'un-godded' the Old Testament, implied the Old Testament documents were extremely complex and involved, and managed to make Old Testament studies mostly boring, lifeless and dull.
Dale Ralph Davis is not on a crusade against the villains of Old Testament studies, but he still believes that traditional Old Testament criticism has had the effect of killing the Old Testament for the church. This little tome can hardly reverse that, but it is meant as an exercise in reading the Old Testament for fun and profit.
Most of what Davis does in the following pages involves discussing examples of Old Testament narratives. He has tried to select examples from a broad range of possibilities. By the way, he assumes that you have the biblical text handy in order to carry on your 'Berean' work.
