What People are Saying About This
"For many years I have commented in class that I want to do more work on those mysterious references to the Angel of the Lord, on the fact that some people saw God while other passages say he isn't seen, and on how we are to think about the progressive revelation of the Father, Son, and Spirit across the Bible's unfolding narrative. Andrew Malone has done the work for us! Here is a careful sifting of the evidence, a close reading of the texts, and a mature, cautious, logical, Passionate, and convincing treatment of these questions. You'll be glad you read this engaging book."
"Modern interpreters and preachers are often quick to identify the appearance of the Angel of the Lord as a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ. While Christ himself says that what we call the Old Testament anticipated his coming (see Luke 24:25-27, 44-49), Andrew Malone makes a persuasive argument that we should not identify the Angel as a christophany. This accessible, well-written book is a must read for everyone who wants to interpret the Bible correctly."
"Did God appear to ancient Israel? Who is the mysterious Angel of the Lord who crops up throughout the Old Testament and seems to be very much like God himself? In this engaging study, Andrew Malone takes us through the various interpretations that have been given to this phenomenon and explores their plausibility in the light of the biblical evidence. His presentation is lively, making the book accessible to a wide public, and his conclusions are underpinned by serious scholarship. A must read."
"Who is the 'Angel of the Lord'? Is it God, Jesus or Michael? Thankfully Andrew Malone engages in a careful study of these disputed 'christophany' texts. He provides a thorough engagement with all the issues and offers some fresh thoughts about how the New Testament interprets the Old Testament. A great work on the hermeneutics of the so-called christophanieswell worth reading!"
