Many people today view the Old Testament with a great deal of skepticism. Some believe that parts of the Old Testament are deeply flawed and fall short of the truth.
There are also many who reject the Bible--both Old and New Testament--in its entirety because they do not believe in God.
In spite of the nay-sayers, the Old Testament still stands as one of the most important books in the world--and will continue to do so. To understand the Old Testament is to better understand our world today.
