Product Description

This volume meets a need both in biblical studies and Christian religious communities for a resource that puts the best of scholarship in conversation with the theological claims of the biblical texts. In conceiving this volume, our goal was to create a resource that modeled diverse ways of thinking theologically about biblical literature. This volume's distinctiveness is in the way it conceives of the practice of biblical theological reflection. Its starting point is the theological richness and diversity of the biblical texts as books of the Bible. To take such an approach to biblical theological work means that theological reflection begins with and receives its fundamental shape from its engagement with fully formed biblical books.-from the introduction

Most one-volume Bible commentaries focus on standard scholarly issues, answering questions such as who wrote the book, who was addressed, and how the book is structured. In contrast, this is the first one volume commentary to emphasize theological questions: What does each biblical book say about God? How does the book describe God and portray God's actions? Who is God in these biblical books?
