Theological Themes of the Old Testament

  • By Marty E. Stevens
Description: The Old Testament is an ancient collection of theological reflections on life with God that the church has claimed as authoritative Scripture. Whereas most introductory books march from Genesis to Malachi, this book engages four prominent themes across the breadth of the Old Testament canon: creation, covenant, cultus, and character. By taking this approach, Stevens is articulates key issues that impact the reading of the entire Old Testament. This engaging volume is intended for laypeople who want to know more about the Old Testament, whether in personal study, church groups, college classrooms, or seminary courses. Endorsements: "A gifted writer and pedagogue, Dr. Stevens has distilled much of the theological richness of the Old Testament and effectively presented it to her readers. Written with precision yet sparkling with passion and humor, her work is an ideal theological introduction to the Old Testament." --William P. Brown Columbia Theological Seminary "Marty Stevens understands that the Old Testament is a 'theological text first and foremost.' She is to be commended for this clear and careful study of key themes that are well-chosen and thoughtfully developed." --Terence E. Fretheim Luther Seminary About the Contributor(s): Marty E.
