Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage: A Christian Theology of Roots and Renewal
Wilson, Marvin R.

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2014 pp. xxvii + 304. $22.00


Description: In this very readable sequel to his popular book Our Father Abraham ó which has sold more than 70,000 copies ó Marvin Wilson illuminates theological, spiritual, and ethical themes of the Hebrew scriptures that directly affect Christian understanding and experience. Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage draws from both Christian and Jewish commentary in discussing such topics as thinking theologically about Abraham, understanding the God of Israel and his reputation in the world, and what it means for humans to be created in God's image. Wilson calls for the church to restore, renew, and protect its foundations by studying and appreciating its origins in Judaism. Designed to serve as an academic classroom text or for use in personal or group study, the book includes hundreds of questions for review and discussion.

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