John Goldingay

Israel's Gospel (#01 in Old Testament Theology Series)

John Goldingay

$89.99

Hardback

In this first volume of a proposed three-volume Old Testament theology, John Goldingay focuses on narrative. Examining the biblical order of God's creation of and interactions with the world and Israel, he tells the story of Israel's gospel as a series of divine acts:

God Began

God Started Over

God Promised

God Delivered

God Sealed

God Gave

God Accommodated

God Wrestled

God Preserved

God Sent

God Exalted

Volume Two will focus on Israel's faith, or Old Testament theology as belief. It will explore the person and nature of God, the nature of the world and humanity, the character of sin and the significance of Israel.

Volume Three will focus on Israel's life, or Old Testament theology as ethos. It will explore its worship, spirituality, ideals and vision for living.

This is an Old Testament theology like no other. Whether applying magnifying or wide-angle lenses, Goldingay is closely attentive to the "First" Testament's narrative, plot, motifs, tensions and subtleties. Brimming with insight and energy, and postmodern in its ethos, this book will repeatedly reward readers with fresh and challenging perspectives on God and God's ways with Israel and the world - as well as Israel's ways with God.

Goldingay's Old Testament Theology is not only a scholarly contribution to the ongoing quest of understanding the theological dimensions of the "First" Testament. Preachers and teachers will prize it as a smart, informed and engaging companion as they read and re-present the Old Testament story to postmodern pilgrims on the way. This is Old Testament theology that preaches.
