Word Without End: The Old Testament as Abiding Theological Witness

Overview


Word without End advocates a canonical approach to biblical interpretation, one that does not allow the New Testament to eclipse the interpretation of the Old Testament.

Overview


Word without End advocates a canonical approach to biblical interpretation, one that does not allow the New Testament to eclipse the interpretation of the Old Testament. In so doing, Seitz directly challenges the way in which the Old Testament is currently being read and taught in theological seminaries. By attending to "theology," "exegesis," and "practice"--the three divisions of the book--Seitz models a reading of the Old Testament as Scripture that lays out a theological foundation for the life of the church.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

(Seitz) urges a recover of nerve in the theological interpretation and shows us what that means. . . . A rare gift.

- Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"This is an exciting study of substantial theological questions that will not, and cannot, be neglected.... A provocative and challenging study of hermeneutics and biblical theology by Professor Seitz... One may be sure that he will be a partner in dialogue for anyone in the future who engages in biblical theology."
Horizons in Biblical Theology
"Theological reflection is integral to all that Seitz does—'not a mere "homiletical topping" that gets iced on once the serious work of exegesis is completed—and he does it very well.... Well written and attractively presented.... The skill and persistence with which Seitz pursues fundamental theological questions yields many valuable insights."
Modern Theology
All reflect the creative and lively theological acumen of the author.... Happily, they are all devoid of the suffocating language and technical terminology of the biblical guild and extend open arms to readers with an interest in theology.
Scripture Bulletin (U.K.)
For those involved in teaching Hebrew scriptures, this book will prove to be a valuable resource from one of today's finest scholars, which offers a wealth of information, ideas and questions regarding the current direction of biblical theology, possible links between dissimilar OT books and reflections on the use of the Bible in the Church, appropriate for a new millennium.
The Bible Today
The scholarship here is solid, and the insights are enlightening.
