The Old Testament is a cornerstone of western civilization. However, reading it can become a wrestling match with a very eccentric and challenging text. This collection of essays by noted modern biblical scholars presents the methods and findings of current biblical scholarship for a general audience.
Scholars include Karl Sandberg, William Dozeman, Diana Edelman, Marvin Sweeney, William Dever, Russell Fuller, Richard Clifford, Carole Fontaine, and Sheldon Greaves.

Discovering the Old Testament is a series of podcasts based on a Summer course, “Discovering the Old Testament” offered through the Stanford University Continuing Studies program, along with other classes and seminars conducted in the San Francisco Bay Area. The podcast takes a closer look at the history, culture, language, archaeology, and impact of one of the West’s most influential books. I am planning a series of at least 50 parts for this podcast, perhaps more, delivered at the rate of about four each month.
