Arnold and Beyer’s Encountering the Old Testament is one of the most recent theologically conservative, college-level surveys of the entire Old Testament. It helpfully interacts with more recent scholarship, while maintaining, with few exceptions, the traditional interpretations of the Old Testament books. It is also full of beautiful, pertinent pictures and maps.
