Publisher's Description

Among the several prominent themes in the Bible, the story of Israel is one that has attracted recent attention and study. The biblical story of Israel--in its election, sin, exile and restoration--is a finely articulated drama of the glory and the plight of the universal story of humanity and creation. And the story of Jesus, born from the womb of Israel as its Messiah and true seed of Abraham, provides the redemptive solution to Israel's and the world's plight. This book by C. Marvin Pate, J. Scott Duvall, J. Daniel Hays, E. Randolph Richards, W. Dennis Tucker Jr. and Preben Vang explores the unitive theme of the story of Israel from Genesis to Revelation. Probing each section of Scripture--from Pentateuch, Psalms and Prophets to Gospels, Epistles and Apocalypse--the authors bring the contours of this story to light. From close-up examinations of key texts to panoramic shots of the biblical terrain, The Story of Israel unfolds an intriguing and compelling perspective on biblical theology. And with its features of recommended readings and study questions, it is a textbook suitable for classroom and individual study.

Editorial Reviews

" The Story of Israel is an important volume on a crucial subject. While respecting the proper diversity of the different parts of the canon, the authors rightly recognize its essential coherence. The story of Israel is the story of a pattern of sin-exile-restoration. Written in a clear and engaging style, this book is a must-read for everyone interested in the message of the Bible. I particularly recommend it as a textbook for college or seminary classes."

    the bible is not just a collection of writings for giving us tidbits and pieces of 'verses' for the day, but rather the bible is a whole grand story of God's unfolding redemption in and through particulars of history. in this book, that theological history is traced, opened up, and explained from the beginning of the bible, to the end. this study truly honors scripture by explaining it from beginning to end, paying careful attention to the historical, literary, and theological issues of scripture itself, and then helping to grasp what that means for us today. simply put, if you want to grasp what the biblical content is all about, this study is an excellent tool towards understanding the content of the work of God as laid out in the biblical writngs. it is much more than just "going to heaven when one dies", it is nothing less than God redeeming a fallen creation and then having Himself as the source of all hope and love that keeps it all together and lasting.
