The Old Testament Story introduces the Old Testament, with a focus on the historical context behind it and the literary structures within it. The authors first provide a foundational framework of the history and culture of the Near East at the time the Old Testament stories were being written. Next, they delve into the stories themselves, using insight from a number of contemporary academic methods for reading ancient texts.

The 10th Edition includes a revised Chapter 1, The Book and Those Who Study It, which brings the text's framework in line with the most modern approaches. A refreshed section on archeology modernizes the discussion and flows logically into discussion of the geographical context of ancient Israel.
