    1. Good overall but very light. Instead go to "The World and the Word" or Longmann and Dillar's "Introduction to the Old Testament" .

    2. An Old Testament PhD student recommended Archer as a good, general, upper college level introduction to me. I went to liberal arts school where all the students kiss the ground that Wellhausen walked on. For them to even think of questioning The Documentary Hypothesis is to blaspheme Christ (or more accurately, liberal progressivism). Therefore, I trembled for joy when I bought Archer. Having been indoctrinated by the critical theories I was overjoyed when I saw someone apply sensible scholarshi [...]

    3. Very well devised book of a diverse of material dealing with canonicity as well as authorship of the bible from a evangelical perspective. This read is great for PHD students and some will need to atleast have some Hebrew knowledge to understanding it a little better. Though a lot of seminary student will find this book on there shelf even though they are not at the PhD level it will still help them fight a great fight for faith in the scriptures. I believe that this will be a good base for unde [...]

    4. Gleason Archer's original version of this textbook went indepth to counter the teachings of the 'Higher Criticisim' school which attempted to discredit the authorship, dating, and consistency of the Old Testament. Also contains book-by-book examinations of critical issues and solutions. I used this as one of the textbooks for the Introduction to the Old Testament course I took in seminary.

    5. This is not your ordinary beginners’ guide to the Old Testament. It is good meat for those who have the basic knowledge of the books in the OT. Tackles all issues with regard to the individual books – including latest archaeological findings and challeges faced by liberal criticism. Am doing my masters in theology and this is my main textbook for Old Testament studies.

    6. I recommend this book as an excellent reference source on the OT from a conservative evangelical scholar. Very scholarly and with good critiques of the Higher Criticism approach to biblical scholarship.

    7. I thought that this was a great work. It tackled all of the issues regarding the Old Testament. Well worth the read.

    8. I THINK THAT IT IS A REALLY GOOD BOOK TO REVIEW AS WELL AS A GOOD STRUCTURES ANALLYSIS THE OLD TESTAMENT.
