Navigating questions about morality, especially the morality of God in the Old Testament, requires special care and thoughtful, biblical consideration. In this little booklet, Beale provides readers with just that. Using the destruction of the Canaanites and imprecatory psalms as case studies, Beale carefully explains the theological principles that undergird these often troubling realities. As one would hope, this work is rich in biblical exposition and so provides a reliable framework for tackling the various other issues related to this important topic in Old Testament studies.
This booklet effectively treats this difficult and, for many, troublesome topic. Beales addressing the issues raised in terms of the unfolding of the history of salvation is particularly helpful and instructive.
