Interpreting the Old Testament after Christendom

  • By Jeremy Thomson
Product Description
How would you describe the Old Testament? Offensive, violent, patriarchal, archaic; difficult, boring, obsolete? Many Christians don't bother with it anymore. Yet these ancient books were in Jesus' lifeblood, and they provided the thought-world of those early followers who wrote about him in what became the New Testament. This book challenges those stereotypes of Israel's Scriptures by exploring their significance in the apostolic writings and by demonstrating the importance of whole books for nuanced interpretation. It takes readers on a tour through four key books before considering the wider issues of interpretation that readers must consider in order to hear God's Spirit speaking afresh to a range of contemporary concerns, including racism and the environment.
