Product Description

When many people think of the Old Testament they picture war, destruction, and judgment. David A. Leiter wants to point out that the Old Testament is not only about these but it is also about God's desire for peace, harmony, and restoration. A distinction should not be made that the Old Testament reveals a God of wrath and the New Testament a God of love, there is only one God. Leiter brings out from every genre of the Old Testament the theme of peace to show that it is important not only to the Israelites but also to God.

David A. Leiter is pastor of the Green Tree Church of the Breathren in Oaks, Pennsylvania. He holds a M.Div from Bethany Theological Seminary and a PhD in biblical studies from Drew University. He has taught at New York Theological Seminary and the Ecumenical Institute of Theology in Baltimore. David also has published numerous articles and essays in Old Testament studies.

Publisher's Description

The Bible has a reputation for being about violence in the Old Testament and about peace in the New Testament. David A. Leiter deconstructs that oversimplified notion as he explores passages in which God calls for the making of peace. By identifying key typologies, Leiter shows the Old Testament's relevance to today's struggles for peace.
