-Publisher

Brueggemann brings his typical interpretative coherence to this discussion of over 100 themes in the Old Testament - from 'Ancestors' to 'YHWH'. His concern is to encourage readers to understand the depth of the issues involved in interpreting these themes by setting out the problems and arguments of the scholars as they have tried to resolve them. Many of these themes reverberate with other themes, inviting the reader to sense the dynamism of the faith of ancient Israel. At the same time, Brueggemann suggests contemporary connections to the ancient texts, pointing up their practical significance for Christians today.
-Publisher

Pastors, scholars, and thoughtful laypeople seeking a deeper understanding of God's Word need look no further. Going beyond dictionary definitions, Brueggemann expounds upon the characterizations, complexities, and interrelatedness of 100 Old Testament terms and themes from "Ancestors" to "YHWH"---then goes on to discuss their practical significance to the 21st-century church.
