The Old Testament represents the Sacred Scriptures of two major world religions, but also a fascinating and engaging story of an ancient people that has had unparalleled influence over western culture as a whole. The version you have is probably in a modern English, and reasonably easy to read, if not always to follow; and therein can lie a danger...

This Friendly Guide will unpick some of the knots that can arise from reading the Old Testament without knowing some of the background material, such as: who wrote it? When? And why? In accessible language, come to grips with this startling series of Books we call the Old Testament, taking into account all the cutting edge contemporary historical and cultural research. Written be renowned Australian Old Testament scholar, Marie Turner, this clear and concise Friendly Guide is ideally suited to an introductory level readership. For students and teachers it will be an invaluable resource to supplement their Religious Education program. Similarly, parish groups, RCIA teams and candidates, or anyone wanting to improve their understanding of the foundations of Scripture, will find the text indispensable.

Enjoy the trip!
