 If you happen to own Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible you have the same book in a different format.  Each Old Testament book is addressed by a different author who provides background information, overviews the theological message, discusses its place in the canon and its historic interpretation, and provides various insights.  The volume is not designed to offer in-depth study of the individual books or even a good survey.  Its main contribution is a quick index to a variety of views concerning interpretation and contemporary scholarship.  Beyond that I did not think the book was very helpful.
