From the cover: THIS companion to the Old Testament has been written both for the general reader and for the student who wants a brief introduction to the subject. The author believes that to understand the Old Testament it is no good merely to read about it, and he has taken pains throughout to point the way to the words of the Bible itself. Canon Fison shows with conviction how the Old Testament is from the beginning a preparation for the New, and how the remarkable history of the Jews, their country, their temple, their leaders and their prophets made a way of holiness for the Messiah. He finds time to discuss fully many of the minor problems that often puzzle the reader of the Bible, such as the apparent unworthiness of Jacob compared with Esau, or the death of Uzzah when he was trying to steady the Ark.
