Product Description

From the first verses of Genesis, the Spirit of God makes a dramatic appearance in the Bible. Yet there is surprisingly little scholarly work on the Spirit in the Old Testament. On examination, what we find are similarities but also some significant differences in emphasis from the New Testament. To unpack these emphases on creation, wisdom, prophecy, leadership, creativity and more, the editors of Presence, Power, and Promise: The Role of the Spirit of God in the Old Testament have brought to the task a host of first-rate Old Testament scholars.

Together they present a comprehensive examination of the issues facing interpreters and exegetes on the identity and activity of the Spirit in the Hebrew Bible. This volume provides readers with an able guide to the interpretative background of Ancient Near Eastern literature, the major themes and motifs, and particular texts and passages that contribute to an understanding of the Spirit in the Old Testament.

Editorial Reviews

"The 's/Spirit of God' in the Old Testament has a fairly wide semantic range with much often riding more on the context than on the usage of the word 's/Spirit.' Twenty-one contributors have thoroughly examined the thirty-nine times the term 's/Spirit' is connected with 'God/LORD' or 'Holy' in the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament. Not all will agree with all their results, for they even do not always agree with each other, but readers will be pleased that every effort has been made to determine each nuance or contextual meaning that can be found in each of the usages. I think this volume will be the starting point for discussions of this topic for years to come."
