Book Description:

For the last two centuries, biblical scholars have made discoveries and insights about the Old Testament that have greatly changed the way in which the authorship of these ancient scriptures have been understood. In the last of three volumes spanning the entire Hebrew Bible, David Bokovoy dives into the writings of the prophets, showing what textual criticism has led biblical scholars today to understand of these books of the Bible, and what implications those have for Latter-day Saint understandings of the Bible and modern scripture.
