Old Testament Theology: A Thematic Approach
Routledge, Robin

Downer's Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 2008 pp. 384. $32.00


Description: Of the several excellent Old Testament theologies available today, most tend to be large and daunting for beginning students and others who are hard-pressed for time. Robin Routledge's Old Testament Theology is gauged to meet the needs of readers who want to dine on the meat of Old Testament theology but do not have time to linger over hors d'oeuvres and dessert. And his thematic approach makes it easy for selective readers to find what they need. Routledge provides a substantial overview of the central issues and themes in Old Testament theology. In a style that is clear, concise and nuanced, Routledge examines the theological significance of the various texts within their wider canonical context, noting unity and coherence while showing awareness of diversity. Readers looking for a substantial overview of the central issues and themes in Old Testament theology will find that in the main body of the text, and those with more specific interests will find more detailed discussion and references to further reading in the numerous and expansive footnotes.

Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Theology
