Giving the sense
Understanding And Using Old Testament Historical Texts
Brimming with insights, this volume by evangelical scholars explores a broad range of Old Testament studies. The contributors explore methodological issues, survey the five major eras in Israel's history, and focus on specific issues related to understanding Old Testament historical texts such as the dating of the Exodus, the use of large numbers during Israel's monarchy, and the literary features in the book of Esther. Compiled in honour of Eugene H. Merrill, this volume helps Old Testament students understand how to give the sense (in word of the Nehemiah 8:8) of what God's Word say in historical narratives.
