In this clear, concise, and accessible book, Andrew Davis provides an excellent introduction to four main themes of the Old Testament: Creation, Covenant, Prophecy, and Kingship. By treating these themes in the order in which they appear in the Bible, he traces the story of the Bible itself. And by showing how these themes interconnect and what they meant for the New Testament writers, he gives us all—both new Bible readers and more advanced students—a deeper appreciation for the riches that the Bible offers every time we open its pages.

Andrew R. Davis is an associate professor of Old Testament at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. His research focuses on temples in the ancient world and on literary approaches to biblical texts.
