Yesterday, Today, and Forever: The Continuing Relevance of the Old Testament, Second Edition
This updated and expanded edition is intended for use as a text in Christian and Bible college courses such as Old Testament Survey or Biblical Literature. Dr. Helyer presents the study of the Old Testament with a fresh approach which springs from the conviction that the basic theological issues of the Old Testament are as relevant now, at the beginning of the 21st century, as they were when originally penned. The reason lies in the unchanging nature of what it means to be human. The fundamental questions of human existence are theological questions—questions which are the same at all times and in all cultures. Questions like: Who am I? How can I know and please God? What will happen to me and the world? The essential message of the Old Testament speaks to these enduring questions, so the passage of centuries has not rendered it out-of-date.
