In this revised volume, Gleason Archer's original study is updated by author Dillon Burroughs. It approaches the study of the Old Testament from both a general and specific point of view.
Dealing first with issues over which many scholars debate, Archer offers evidence to support the conservative view of canonicity, historicity, inspiration, textual problems, and higher criticism. The second section dissects each book of the Old Testament individually. Archer thoroughly covers issues like biblical creationism; Noah's Ark and the flood; authorship; chronology; and alleged language, style, and theme differences.
A Survey of Old Testament Introduction is invaluable to students and laymen who want to understand the conservative position of Old Testament issues and are not afraid to examine critical views.
I am very much impressed with Dr. Archer's book. This piece of excellent literature...ought to be in every library in the United States.
-Josh McDowell, Apologist and author of More Than a Carpenter
...the most important work on Old Testament introduction from a conservative viewpoint that has been produced in the twentieth century.
-Wilbur M. Smith, Bible scholar and author
