Howard, Introduction to Old Testament Historical Books

Over the past two months I gave teachings at The Grove on the book of Ruth. I like to share what books and commentaries helped me and might help someone else someday in the future.

This was actually a textbook that I needed for my undergrad work, but it helps a lot with some of the background information around different books int he first half of the Old Testament. I think these kinds of books are not only good for undergrad kids, but also for people who want a deeper understanding of the Scriptures that they read on a regular basis. It’s not a theological masterpiece or anything, but it doesn’t try to be that. It simply wants to open the text up a little bit more for the reader and give them a peak inside the culture that the Bible was written in.
