Product Description

This book celebrates Michael P. V. Barrett's many contributions to the church and the academy. It covers a variety of topics and is divided into three major sections of essays: historical, exegetical/expositional, and theological. The historical section covers issues from the ancient Near East to Puritan preaching and the importance of the Reformation. Though these may seem disparate subjects, they reflect Barrett's love for the world of the Old Testament as well as his allegiance to Protestant and Reformed Christianity. The exegetical and expositional essays range from Genesis to the poetic literature of the Hebrew Bible, from historical and expositional theology to the details of textual criticism. Finally, the theological essays focus on three topics dear to Barrett's heart: Christ in the Old Testament, a biblical and balanced view of God, and the wisdom of Qoheleth. This variety reflects the breadth and depth of Barrett's own interest in the issues of reading, interpreting, and proclaiming the Scriptures.
