Doc B:

I like Harrison and Young, in that order. Young is probably slightly more conservative, but Harrison is quite a bit more detailed, and his work on JEPD is unmatched, IMO.

Both Harrison and Young seem to be discounted in the Christmas sale: Introduction to the Old Testament Collection (3 vols.) | Logos Bible Software

Paul Caneparo:

I have the book in hardcopy and like it enough I bought the Logos version as well...fantastic discount.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Michael Kinch:

How does a  Catholic introduction differ from a protestant one?

I would assume it has the deuterocanonical books, also.

Yes.

This particular volume draws together and dives deeply but very readably into the insights of the latest historical-critical research, understood through the lens of (Catholic) faith, and the wisdom of ancient/early Christians.

Non-Catholics will, of course, find things in it that they disagree with, but it has positive editorial reviews not only from Catholic scholars but also from Protestant (Daniel I. Block of Wheaton College, Richard Averbeck of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) and SDA (Roy Gane of Andrews University) ones for good reason: it is authentically valuable even to non-Catholics.

Please use descriptive thread titles to attract helpful posts & save others time. Thanks!
