In this book Walter Brueggemann, America's premier biblical theologian, introduces the reader to the broad theological scope and chronological sweep of the Old Testament. He covers every book of the Old Testament in the order in which it appears in the Hebrew Bible and treats the most important issues and methods in contemporary interpretation of the Old Testament--literary, historical, and theological.
From Stone-Campbell Journal(Spring 2005, pgs. 125-127)"More worrisome is Brueggemann's seeming support of the view that present-day Jews neednot believe in Christ for salvation.""While there are many insights to be gleaned fromthis book, both original and conventional, Brueggemann seems to raise many more questionsthan he answers for the conservative reader."by Walt Zorn, Lincoln Christian College and Seminary
