The Old Testament makes up three-quarters of the Bible and has had an incalculable influence on Western civilization and culture. Yet it is often neglected by the church, problematic for teachers, and inaccessible to students. Written by experienced scholars and educators from five continents, Make the Old Testament Live offers fresh perspectives on teaching the Old Testament today. Addressing problems of curriculum, context, and communication, these essays discuss such topics as which parts of the Old Testament should be taught, what approaches work best with each level of students, and what modern educational methods are best for teaching the Bible. Practical, insightful, and based on years of classroom experience in institutions ranging from seminaries to secular universities, this volume will enable all teachers of the Bible or theology to make the Old Testament more vital for their students.

"All those who teach the Old Testament will find themselves poring over each chapter, discovering many points pertinent to the task to which we have been called. Whether one is considering how better to teach Hebrew, how to organize lectures on Old Testament theology, or how courses on the Old Testament should fit into a specific curriculum, this volume offers help around every corner. Full of practical ideas on how to make the Old Testament live for today's students . . . this is a book long overdue."
William Dyrness

"This book is filled with fascinating and practical advice for students and teachers of the Old Testament. It forms part of an important movement to revitalize the teaching of the Old Testament, and I commend it."
