What Should Be on the Bookshelf? Old Testament Resources

A very helpful post by John Anderson on what should be on bookshelf of every Old Testament student can be found here.

Also, John Walton, Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton has compiled a list of his recommended commentaries on each book of the Old Testament.

I am also looking forward to seeing a copy of J. Daniel Hays' The Message of the Prophets: A Survey of the Prophetic and Apocalyptic Books of the Old Testament. If this volume is anything close to Mark Strauss' Four Portraits, One Jesus, we should be in for another treat, as I consider Strauss' volume to be required reading for anyone in a Historical Jesus and Gospels intro class. For now, you  can read a small sample of Hays' volume here.
