:This volume explores the theological heartbeat of the Old Testament by examining three big ideas that communicate the Old Testament's redemptive theology. Highly respected scholar Mark Boda shows how three creedal expressions--the narrative, character, and relational creeds--recur throughout the Old Testament and express its core redemptive theology, in turn revealing how the redemptive pulse of God expands to all of creation. He also traces these redemptive and creational pulses into the New Testament and shows their relevance for today's Christian community.
Mark Boda (Ph.D., Cambridge University) is Professor of Old Testament at McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario. Mark joined the College in 2003 after teaching for nine years at Canadian Theological Seminary. He has authored four books, edited seven volumes of collected essays, and written over 45 articles on various topics related to the Old Testament and Christian Theology.
Key areas of interest include prayer and penitence in the Old Testament and Christian Theology and Babylonian and Persian Period Hebrew Books and History (Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Lamentations, Jeremiah).
Mark enjoys mentoring students and teaches with enthusiasm about the Old Testament and its continued relevance to the Christian life today. This is evident in the sound biblical exegesis and application in all of his commentaries: Zechariah-Haggai (NIVAC, Zondervan); 1 & 2 Chronicles (NLT, Tyndale); Judges (EBC, Zondervan); Zechariah (NICOT, Eerdmans); Ezra-Nehemiah (TOTC, InterVarsity); Penitence in Biblical Theology (NSBT, InterVarsity Press) and LXX Psalms (LXXC, Brill).
