Series Information
Siphrut: Literature and Theology of the Hebrew Scriptures, 14

Description: Terence E. Fretheim has long been a leading voice in Old Testament theology. In this volume, thirty of his classic studies have been gathered together for the first time under the rubrics "God and the World," "God and Suffering," "God, Wrath, and Divine Violence," "God and the Pentateuch," "God and the Prophets," and "God and the Church's Book." Here readers can find a compelling answer to the question that has motivated Fretheim's work for more than forty yearsónamely, what kind of God is the God of Scripture? The studies are introduced by a critical overview of Fretheim's career and theology by the editors and a retrospective by Fretheim himself.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Literature, Methods, Theological Approaches
