Overview

How can we get beyond perceived barriers and find in the Old Testament the speech of God for today? Is there something more than antiquarian interest in these ancient writings? What do we do with the battles, the worldview, expressions of the whole range of human emotions, patriarchal assumptions, genealogies, signs and wonders, the wrath of God, prophetic oracles, sacrifices, and predictions of disaster?

William Holladay offers clear and sage guidance for these and a host of other questions and topics in this useful book, which functions as an innovative introduction to the Old Testament and its theology.
