Stephen Breck Reid

"Dearman and Hubbard have together produced a new introduction to the Old Testament with accessible prose, beautiful pictures, charts, tables, and maps that present the data in engaging ways. . . . When it comes to what I look for in an introduction, this one checks all the boxes."
