While many Christians recognize the abiding value of the Old Testament as God's Word they stay away from studying it because they see it as a difficult and forbidding subject. In this completely revised and expanded edition of God's Word to Israel Joseph Jensen incorporates the latest scholarship using a combination of the historical, literary, and thematic approaches to present a unified treatment-one that with even a modest degree of effort will produce rich rewards. By selecting the most important matters, rather than attempting to cover every aspect of the Old Testament message, Jensen has given them the space and emphasis they deserve.

Joseph Jensen, Mark S. Smith

Joseph Jensen, OSB, taught Scripture for many years at the Catholic University of America and supervised the production of the New American Bible. He is the author of several articles and books, including Ethical Dimensions of the Prophets, published by Liturgical Press. Mark S. Smith is professor of Bible and ancient Near Eastern studies at New York University. Previously he taught at Yale University, Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, and Saint Paul Seminary in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Author or co-author of eighteen books, he is past president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America.

"In this revision of God's Word to Israel, Joseph Jensen offers students and other readers an up-to-date, critical, and also faith-filled introduction to the Old Testament. Especially welcome in this new version is the author's awareness of how a science-opposing mentality corrupts the reading of Scripture. I highly recommend this fresh remastering of a seasoned and readable interpretation of our ancient biblical literature." --John Haught, Distinguished Research Professor, Theology Department, Georgetown University

"God's Word to Israel presents to college, seminary, and intelligent lay audiences the wisdom of a veteran teacher suffused with the love of the Old Testament. Comprehensive and sophisticated, and rich in its incorporation of historical, literary, and archeological scholarship, it remains easily readable and engrossing. This new and augmented edition offers up-to-date discussions of topics such as Genesis and evolution, Joshua and genocide, and recent Church documents about Scripture. The reader is sure to be enchanted and eager to return to reading God's Word." -- Eugene C. Ulrich, John A. O'Brien Professor Emeritus of Hebrew Scripture and Theology, University of Notre Dame

"The fruit of decades of teaching and research and a nearly a century of prayerful reflection, this clear and comprehensive work is the best introduction to the Old Testament I know. Combining top quality biblical scholarship with pastoral sensitivity, God's Word to Israel is accessible and valuable to students and to all those who want to grow in their knowledge of and love for Sacred Scripture." -- Mary Elizabeth Sperry, author of Scripture in the Parish: A Guide for Catholic Ministry
