Today’s free book is H. Wheeler Robinson’s Religious Ideas of the Old Testament, The author states the purpose of the book as follows:
It is the aim of this book, within the limits of the series to which it belongs, to present these leading ideas in their historical setting, with some indication of their theological and philosophical value, and of their significance for Christianity. The method of treatment is therefore distinct from that which would naturally be adopted for a history of the religion as a whole through successive periods, though the historical development is more or less followed in the discussion of each topic, and in the order of treatment.Preface, p.v.
