While both the Old and New Testaments are part of our Christian heritage, the Old Testament can feel particularly foreign and mysterious. Its violence is startling; its heroes flawed; its history complex; and its locations a far cry from Kansas. While no one needs to become an archeological expert to grasp the message of Scripture, background information can deepen our appreciation and understanding as we read.

In this wide-ranging, lively introduction to the world of the Old Testament, Sinkinson gives an overview of storytelling techniques, laws, people, beliefs, and geography, removing misunderstandings by putting details in their historical context.


“In an easy style, Chris Sinkinson shows how the books of the Old Testament are realistic and relevant for today. Without avoiding difficulties, he demonstrates how modern archaeological discoveries aid understanding of the Bible.”

— Alan Millard, Emeritus Rankin Professor of Hebrew and Ancient Semitic Languages, The University of Liverpool

 “Chris Sinkinson proves a wonderful guide to the long-ago world of the Old Testament: sure-footed, interesting, and dispensing up-to-date knowledge with a light and humorous touch. He’s aware of just how much we need to know to make sense of what we read. Under his expert teaching so much that seems difficult is opened up.”

— Derek Tidball, former Principal of London School of Theology
