A Christian Approach to the Hebrew Bible
Reshaping the Agenda for Old Testament Scholarship
About the Book: In Old Testament Theology, Walter Moberly probes what is necessary to understand and appropriate the Hebrew Bible as a fundamental resource for Christian theology and life today. This accessible, provocative volume offers a creative example of theological interpretation, modeling a way of doing Old Testament theology that takes seriously both the nature of the biblical text as ancient text and also the questions and difficulties that arise as believers read this text in a contemporary setting.
“Walter Moberly is easily among the best and most compelling Old Testament theologians working today. In his latest offering, he builds off of previous work, advancing a reading of Israel’s scriptures within a Christian frame of reference such that the claims of the ancient text are repeatedly shown to have lively and enduring implications for contemporary faith…. More than anything else, this volume distinguishes itself (and its author) as exceedingly wise–something that can be said for precious few books these days. Here is a volume that I will use and return to often.” – Brent A. Strawn, Emory University
“Old Testament theology in the form of eight exegetical performances. A Moberly omnibus: clear, thoughtful, engaging, and of contemporary relevance.” – Christopher Seitz, University of Toronto
