The Old Testament God generally has a rather poor reputation, even in Christian circles. But as the author points out, The Old Testament Scriptures can remain alive and will lead us to a fresh appreciation of all that God has done for us.

Targeted to thoughtful readers, this book addresses a cluster of issues often troubling for the person who seeks to understand the Old Testament. Who's Afraid of the Old Testament God? speaks very frankly about some of these "problems," things like sin and the fall, Satan, "moral blemish" passages, strange laws, etc. The chapter titles follow:

  1. Don't let your New Testament get in the way of your Old Testament
  2. Behold it was very good and then it all turned sour
  3. Whatever happened to Satan in the Old Testament
  4. Strange people need strange laws
  5. Could you invite a Canaanite home to lunch?
  6. The worst story in the Old Testament – Judges 19-21
  7. The best story in the Old Testament – the Messiah
  8. What kind of prayers would you publish if you were God?

This new, fifth edition leaves the text unchanged, but has larger type and wider margins.
