The Hebrew Scriptures

The Old Testament using the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) translation

The Hebrew Scriptures

McGahan Publishing House is offering a new way to discover the Old Testament.

The Hebrew Scriptures offer an original and profound reading experience focused on the writers’ literary artistry that shaped the theological messages.

The book’s revised order also has important implications for interpreting the Hebrew Scriptures as a whole.

There are four major introductions – the Hebrew Scriptures, the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings. There also is an introduction for each book in the scriptures.

The goal for each introduction focuses the reader on matters such as basic background, the material covered, literary movement and shaping, and the theological purpose of the book or sections.

Also, in this volume, you will find other helpful information – an index of key events, a reading plan, and commentary and resource suggestions for those wishing to delve into further studies.

This project will be beneficial for any Christian wishing to fully understand the Old Testament’s purpose and usefulness. This volume will be a great resource for a layperson, college and seminary students, ministers – anyone who has a desire to learn about the ancient writings of the Hebrew Scriptures.

One-of-a-Kind Project

Arrangement of the books follows the long-standing traditional order of the Hebrew Bible

This order is different from that found in modern English translations. The Hebrew Bible has three sections called the Torah, Prophets, and Writings. One example: the Prophets – Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings. The book of Ruth is in the Writings section of the Hebrew Bible.

Verse numbers have been removed, with chapters only and line numbers in lieu of verses

This is one of the most important and unique aspects of the project. As you read The Hebrew Scriptures, our hope is, that you will be drawn into the stories and experience the Old Testament with an eye toward the literary shape of the works’ theological messages.

39 introductions written by 34 Old Testament scholars from across the globe

The scholars gathered for this project have diverse backgrounds, including Nancy deClassie-Walford, Stephen Dempster, John Goldingay, Tremper Longman, Joshua Stewart, Beth Stovell, and Brent Strawn.
