In the past few weeks I have received several books which authors and publishes want me to read and evaluate. These are the books I will be reading and reviewing in the coming weeks:
Michael D. Coogan, A Brief Introduction to the Old Testament: The Hebrew Bible in Its Context. New York: Oxford University Press, 2009.
Andrew E. Hill and John H. Walton, A Survey of the Old Testament. 3rd Edition. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2009.
David L. Nichols, Understanding the Old Testament: A Narrative Summary. Charleston, SC: BookSurge Publishing, 2008.
Daniel Unsealed. The Prophecy Society, 2009.
I want to thank the publishers and authors of these books for sending me their books. Publishers and new authors need to expose their books to a wider audience. I am happy to accept the invitation to evaluate their books and review them in my blog.
My policy as a reviewer is that I will evaluate the merits of each book in an honest and open way. The most important task for a reviewer is to inform the reader about the content of the book and the contribution it makes to biblical studies.
In the end, the reader wants to know whether to invest their money in buying a book and whether the book is worth reading. Thus, in my evaluation and review of books, I take the side of readers and let them know whether they should buy the book.
