Apostle of the Last Days by C. Marvin Pate is an excellent book showing how Jesus fulfills BOTH Jewish AND Graeco-Roman expectations for the last days. If you are preaching or teaching on any letter of Paul, I highly recommend this volume.
I have read dozens of Old Testament Surveys. This one was about like any other, expect for the strong Calvinistic slant put on each Old Testament book. If you are a Calvinist, you will like this Old Testament survey. If you are not a Calvinist, I encourage you to pick up some other Old Testament survey on the shelf.
