In the texts of ancient Israel, Rogerson distinguishes "hot" cultural situations, alive to the remarkable potential of narratives that describe unfulfilled human aspirations to open up horizons of change, from "cold" cultural situations, where those potentialities are closed down to reinforce the institutional structures of the status quo.
Moving throughout narrative, legal, wisdom, and prophetic corpora and offering fresh and compelling insights at every step, A Theology of the Old Testament draws out powerful visions of human nature and of the world's future. Throughout Rogerson poses the challenge: Do these visions require a theological basis to be compelling in today's world, or can they speak as powerfully beyond the confines of religious belief?
