$45.99

Paperback
Examines history of interpretation, present trends, and future directions in Old Testament studies.

- Publisher The eighteen essays presented in this important volume will orient readers of the Old Testament in three ways. They describe the most significant developments in Old Testament interpretation since the mid-twentieth century. They delineate the dominant trends of the present, exploring the currents that are shaping new directions of interpretation. And, uniquely, they suggest the directions that such interpretation will take at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The volume thus moves beyond chronicling the past and illuminating the present to establishing prospects for the future, by considering the consequences of current trends in scholarship and suggesting what readers of the Old Testament may expect at the beginning of a new century of interpretation. Written and edited by his friends and colleagues, Old Testament Interpretation: Past, Present, and Future honors the life and work of Gene M. Tucker, recently retired from the faculty of Candler School of Theology, and President of the Society of Biblical Literature in 1996.
