Old Testament FTW! Introduction

Around here, we love us some Old Testament. And so, as D&C winds down and some of us start hearing the music build in anticipation, I bring you the first part of a series to run for the next 14 months or so, Old Testament For The Win™, or OTFTW.

Among other things, I’m going to provide an annotated list of recommended Old Testament books and resources; discuss individual books on that list; explain how to use some Hebrew resources without knowing much Hebrew, what that’s good for, as well as caveats therein; talk about some computer resources and how to get started with them; discuss the vulgarity of language, and translational/cultural issues; and of course, plenty o’ posts on actual passages, teaching insights and frustrations, sex, death, and other Old Testament topics.

Stay tuned. FPR is not dead yet.

  1. Looking forward to this Nitsav. I’m assuming your putting Inspiration and Incarnation on the list. If so, I hope a discussion of the book ensues. I’ve got some questions…

    BTW – how would you rank the best translations for the OT?

    Jewish Study Bible?, NRSV?, TNIV?
