Product Description

In Hearing the Old Testament: Listening for God's Address world-class scholars discuss how contemporary Christians can better hear and appropriate God's address in the Old Testament. This volume is part of a growing interest in theological interpretation of the Old Testament.

Editors Craig G. Bartholomew and David J. H. Beldman offer a coherent and carefully planned volume, a truly dialogical collaboration full of up-to-date research and innovative ideas. While sharing a desire to integrate their Old Testament scholarship with their love for God --and, thus, a commitment to listening for God's voice within the text -- the contributors display a variety of methods and interpretations as they apply a Trinitarian hermeneutic to the text. The breadth, expertise, and care evidenced here make this book an ideal choice for upper-level undergraduate and seminary courses.

Endorsements

This welcome volume addresses the famine in the land (Amos 8:11-12), specifically, the famine of hearing the lifegiving word of God to the contemporary church through the Old Testament. With a fine mixture of contributions from both internationally renowned and younger Old Testament scholars, this collection of essays guides readers through vital aspects of biblical interpretation, helping us hear afresh the voice of God in the texts of Scripture...An invaluable resource for all who long to hear for themselves God's address in the Old Testament.
-Daniel I. Block,
Wheaton College

How can we hear God speak to us in the text of Scripture to equip us for our missional vocation? This should be the fundamental question for critical biblical scholarship. Yet an Enlightenment agenda has too often separated God's address from the tools of biblical scholarship, leaving the church bereft of a word from God. This book is an urgent plea by an eminent cast of scholars for biblical scholarship to serve the church so that we can hear God speak through the text of Scripture. The pressing importance of this issue makes this volume priority reading!
-Michael W. Goheen
