Modern readers of the Bible often find the Old Testament difficult and even disturbing. What are we to do with obscure prophecies about long-expired nations? Why should we read and study ancient laws that even the New Testament says are eclipsed by Christ? How can we reconcile Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount with the Old Testament’s graphic narratives of sex and violence?
John Walton has spent a career engaging deeply with the Old Testament’s text and ancient context. His signature approach can be introduced in one sentence: The Old Testament was written for us but not to us. We will fully grasp the Old Testament and its theology only when we are immersed in the ancient cultural current of Israel within the broader cultural river of the ancient Near East.
In Old Testament Theology for Christians, John Walton invites us to leave our modern—and even inherited Christian—preconceptions at the threshold as we enter the world of the Old Testament. He challenges us to see it anew as guests in a strange and fascinating foreign land. Only then will we rediscover its testimony to God’s enterprise.
