“Old Testament Survey is a tremendous resource for those beginning formal study of the Old Testament, whether in school or for personal enrichment. The real gem of this book is its focus on the content of the scriptures in a way that highlights the unity of the Old Testament while also presenting the distinctive features of each biblical book. I love the way the authors navigated scholarly issues with sensitivity while keeping the explanation of the biblical story at the forefront.”
—Rebecca Josberger, program chair of the master of biblical studies and professor of Hebrew and Old Testament, Multnomah University

“Decisively evangelical, intentionally literary, purposefully canonical, and historically informed, the authors deliver a concise and clear narration of the Old Testament for first-time readers in their third rendering of Old Testament Survey. Historical parallels and geographical locales appear at proper junctions to help create the best possible learners of the first part of the Christian scriptures. On a personal note, I have watched students acquaint themselves with the Old Testament for almost two decades with the first two editions. I am confident this project will continue to prove helpful in that task.”
—Jeff Mooney, professor of Old Testament, California Baptist University

“Professors House and Mitchell are reliable guides to the context, content, and canon of the Old Testament. This trusted textbook is highly readable and reflects first-rate biblical scholarship and a firm commitment to the complete truthfulness and enduring relevance of the sacred scriptures. The third edition is adorned with plentiful maps, photos, and charts and accompanied by a workbook to help teachers and students make the most of their study of the Old Testament.”
—Brian J. Tabb, academic dean and professor of biblical studies, Bethlehem College and Seminary
