One means by which to demonstrate the basic oneness of the Scriptures is to trace the development of certain key ideas from one end of the Bible to the other. The purpose of this book is to do just that with nine of the themes that constitute the heart of the Old Testament. The nine themes are monotheism, sovereignty, election, covenant, theocracy, law, sacrifice, faith, and redemption. Youngblood has achieved his purpose admirably by laying out before us the heart of the Old Testament in a careful and practical manner and linking the key theological strands of the Old Testament to the New in a style that is biblically sound, highly readable, and profoundly insightful.
Traces nine key theological strands through the Hebrew Scriptures and shows how they link to the New Testament. Highly accessible, profoundly insightful.
Ronald Youngblood (Ph.D., Dropsie College) is professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Bethel Seminary San Diego. He has written and edited numerous works, including commentaries on Genesis, Exodus, 1 and 2 Samuel, and Isaiah.
