Dr. John N. Oswalt's New Book
While a professor at Wesley Biblical Seminary, Dr. John Oswalt taught a class that I believe was called "Man, Myth, and History." The class covered the true origins of Scripture, refuting the liberal belief that the ancient Jewish nation developed its God and modeled its Scriptures on the myths and religious practices of surrounding cultures. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to take the class when offered. But now, Dr. Oswalt, who is now a Visiting Distinguished Professor of Old Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary, has written a new book covering the material he presented in class. The book is called "The Bible Among The Myths: Unique Revelation Or Just Ancient Literature?" Here is a link to a very positive review of Dr. Oswalt's book on the blog Biblical Foundations which is produced by Dr. Andreas Kostenburger. "The Bible Among The Myths" is published by Zondervan.
