Living Waters from Ancient Springs

  • By Jason Van Vliet
Description: Is the Old Testament still relevant for Christians today? Which fountains of wisdom, which never-failing streams, which wells of joy-filled salvation are we missing out on, if we neglect the Old Testament (Prov 18:4; Amos 5:24; Isa 12:3)? In this celebratory volume, fifteen scholars collaborate to explain and expound diverse aspects of the Christian life, with a special focus on drawing lines from the Old Testament through the New Testament toward the daily reality of living together as pilgrims in the church of Christ. This book commemorates the retirement of Dr. Cornelis Van Dam, professor of Old Testament, from the Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. For three decades, Dr. Van Dam taught seminary students to draw living water from the wells of salvation. All the contributors to this book have benefited in one way or another from his knowledge and instruction. Endorsements: ""The essays in this fine collection are a worthy celebration of Cornelis Van Dam's many years of gifted Kingdom service. And they also point us anew to that which inspired that service: the Living Waters which alone can satisfy our thirsty souls."" -Richard J. Mouw President, Fuller Theological Seminary ""Honoring a scholar who continues to pursue integration between the theological disciplines, this fine volume brings together deep reflections with starting points at various locations in that exciting space between the horizons of Scripture and culture. These essays reveal the rich results of a reformed hermeneutic for the life and mission of the church."" -Mark J. Boda Professor of Old Testament McMaster Divinity College ""Dr. Cornelis Van Dam has given so much to the churches of Jesus Christ in his teaching, writing, preaching, and public speaking. This Festschrift written by fifteen scholars is a wonderful tribute to a man who has given so much to others. It covers a wide variety of topics that will interest everyone from the theological scholar to the person in the pew."" -Richard Aasman Board of Governors Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary About the Contributor(s): Jason Van Vliet is Professor of Dogmatics at the Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He is the author of Children of God: The Imago Dei in John Calvin and His Context (2009).
