Most one-volume Bible commentaries focus on standard scholarly issues, answering questions such as who wrote the book, who was addressed, and how was the book structured. In contrast, this is the fi rst one-volume commentary to emphasize theological questions: What does each biblical book say about God? How does the book describe God and portray God's actions? Who is God in these biblical books
This volume meets a need both in biblical studies and in Christian religious communities for a resource that puts the best of scholarship in conversation with the theological claims of the biblical texts. In conceiving this volume, our goal was to create a resource that modeled diverse ways of thinking theologically about biblical literature.
