Charles Yu is currently pursuing doctoral studies in the Department of Hebrew and Semitics at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
This book is the result of decades of reflection informed by an extensive knowledge of the Hebrew language, the best of critical scholarship, a deep understanding of both the content and spirit of the Old Testament, and a thoroughly evangelical conviction. Taking a narrative, chronological approach to the text, Waltke employs rhetorical criticism to illuminate the theologies of the biblical narrators. Through careful study, he shows that the unifying theme of the Old Testament is the breaking in of the kingdom of God. This theme helps the reader better understand not only the Old Testament, but also the New Testament, the continuity of the entire Bible, and ultimately, God himself.
zmedAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5a necessity for ChristiansMarch 16, 2012zmedAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5All Christians should read the Bible for its doctrine and theology, this is the first thing Paul says is for profit by studying the Word. This book gives such a great OT theological background so that the next time one reads the OT through or only a few verses the book will give the necessary context to what is being read in the OT. Too many Christians think doctrine and theology are only necessary if one is going into the ministry, but Paul says the opposite is true; this book is such an aid that most Christians who read it will be blessed; provided they read it.
C. J.5 Stars Out Of 5May 11, 2009C. J.This work on the theology of the Old Testament is massive...not only in the many pages it contains but also in the many concepts that it conveys. Waltke approaches the OT text from that of a Westminster Confessional Perspective. Waltkerepeated emphasizes the breaking in of theKingdom of God thus situating us betweenthe "Already" and the "Not Yet".This book was originally derived fromWaltke's class lectures as transcriptedby Charles Yu, at that time a Ph.D. studentin Semitic studies at the University ofWisconsin. Cathy Fredericks edited theEnglish style of Yu's transciptions. This book is not recommended for those whoare novices or very unfamiliar with the Old Testament since Waltke presents inter-related OT theological themes in a canonicalorder which would overwhelm any but a seasonedreader of the Old Testament.Otherwise, if you think you might be boredwith reading the Old Testament due to your over-familiarity with the OT, then this bookis one which will provide lot ofexegetical insights with the unfoldingCovenant of Grace (aka WCF) for the veryserious reader of the Old Testament.
