  • Students of the Bible frequently find themselves "overhearing part of a conversation," but without the benefit of its context they can easily misunderstand what is really being said. In Getting the Old Testament, Bridge demonstrates how important it is for modern readers to know the cultural background of those to whom a text was first addressed. By bringing to light the original historical and literary settings of these texts, by using contemporary illustrations-some of them poignant and personal-and by providing practical applications, Bridge makes important Old Testament passages come alive.
