Product Description

Using history, poetry, prophecy, and apocalyptic literature, the Old Testament vividly portrays God's character. But sometimes cultural and historical barriers block our view of the Old Testament picture. Providing a thematic study of each Bible book, House sketches the history of Old Testament theology from Gabler to the present, offering his own methodology for canonical analysis. 600 pages, hardcover from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

The discipline of Old Testament theology continues to be in flux as diverse approaches vie for dominance. Into the stream Paul R. House sends this student-friendly offering that should prove useful to a wide audience. Following introductory chapters on the history of the discipline and his own method, House discusses the theological emphases of each book in the order of the Hebrew canon. Readers with little prior background will find House's thematic surveys particularly helpful for coming to grips with basic biblical content as well as for probing the theological nuances of individual parts of the canon. The book concludes by forging a set of summary statements concerning God and his character, the people of God, and links between the Old and New Testaments that suggest avenues for the exploration of a full biblical theology.

Author Bio

Paul R. House teaches at Beeson Divinity School of Samford University (Birmingham, Alabama). An Old Testament scholar, he has taught previously at Taylor University, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Wheaton College.

Editorial Reviews

Goldingay clearly and strongly affirms the entire trustworthiness and authority of Scripture, and he underlines its theological significance in its parts and entirety.
"Gerhard Hasel, a keen American advocate and analyst of biblical theology, proposed more than a decade ago that the theology of each individual biblical book be examined before synthesizing the whole. House has followed through on Hasel's program admirably. The results are impressive. His synthesis of the Old Testament, moreover, in which monotheism becomes the focal point, is clearly pertinent in a pluralistic religious world. Here is a passionate but mature exposition, crisply, often memorably, articulated. The book marches alongside recent full-blown volumes on Old Testament theology; this full-scale treatment offers a viable, compelling and evangelical alternative. It's a good read."
"Paul House employs his considerable talent and command of the literature to produce a remarkably insightful and stimulating theology of the Old Testament. His book-by-book approach is not only a contribution to scholarly discussion but also an invaluable resource for pastors and lay teachers of the Bible. I enthusiastically recommend this engagingly written and provocative volume as required reading for the serious student."
