James E. Smith has written a concise, clear, informative, easy-to-read series that should be in every Christian's library. It is both scholarly and practical, covering the entire Old Testament. At College Press, our motto is: "Every Christian a Bible Student." This is the kind of helpful, challenging resource that represents the very essence of that motto!
In addition to first rate commentary, Smith has included charts, maps, pneumonic devices, and outlines to help the Old Testament come alive!
