Key Questions about Biblical Interpretation: Old Testament Answers
Goldingay, John

Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2011 pp. xii + 384. $24.99


Description: Highly regarded Old Testament theologian John Goldingay is often asked about the interpretation of the Bible, about the way we are to understand the stories in the Bible, about the relationship between the Old Testament and the New, and so on. In this volume he explores twenty-three questions related to biblical interpretation, articulating creative, provocative explanations for today's church. The book is divided into four parts: concerning Scripture as a whole; concerning narrative; concerning the Old Testament as a whole; and concerning the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings. Students of the Old Testament, pastors, and laypeople will value this work.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Literature
