Baker Academic Spring 2023 Catalog


“Students will appreciate this text!”

This lively, engaging introduction to the Old Testament is critical and theological, lavishly illustrated, and accompanied by a variety of pedagogical aids. It serves as the Old Testament counterpart to Mark Allan Powell’s successful Introducing the New Testament. Introducing the Old Testament presents disputed and controversial issues fairly, neither dictating conclusions nor privileging skepti- cism over faith-based perspectives. The full-color interior is illus- trated with photographs and fine art and includes sidebars, maps, a glossary, and further reading suggestions. Rolf A. Jacobson (PhD, Princeton Theological Seminary) is profes- sor of Old Testament and the Alvin N. Rogness Chair of Scripture, Theology, and Ministry at Luther Seminary. Michael J. Chan (PhD, Emory University) is executive director for faith and learning at Concordia College and hosts the Gospel Beau- tiful podcast.
