Raymond B. Dillard (MDiv, Westminster Theological Seminary; PhD, Dropsie University) was professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary until his death in 1993.

A helpful read in viewing well-known Bible history lessons from a
fresh perspective. Vivid language and colorful illustrations were
freely interwoven in this popular commentary. . . . Overall, this
small volume has much to commend it. It is a pleasant yet
thought-provoking read. . . . All in all I commend this book. . .

At last a series on the Old Testament designed to provide reliable exposition, biblical theology, and a focus on Christ. These books should be like manna in the desert to pastors, preachers, teachers, and many individual Christians who struggle to come to terms with how to read the Olsd Testament.--Sinclair Ferguson, Chancellor's Professor, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries
One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one 'story line' that culminates in Jesus Christ. . . . This series of books goes a long way to meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.--D. A. Carson, Emeritus Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; Editor, Pillar New Testament Commentary series
The Old Testament stories of Elijah and Elisha are as fascinating as they are puzzling, and Christian readers will be delighted to find in this book just the help they need.--Moises Silva
