"The great strength of this book is, as suggested by the title, the blending of matters related to the text and the context of the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible.... This textbook does a fine job of preparing the student to read the OT/HB intelligently."--Phillip Camp, Review of Biblical Literature

Written by two seasoned Old Testament professors, the book pays attention to methodology, archaeology, history, and literary genre and includes illustrations, sidebars, maps, and study questions.
