Reading the Old Testament for the First Time and a Sketch of the Jesus Myths Book Excerpt:

Donald Young's poems are tight and loose at the same time the reader can move within them and the reader will feel strongly the concern, the emotion, the flow that carries the words along. There is color, music and a wonderful reliance on imagery that makes the poems a joy to read and reread. But what gives the poems their energy and depth is the feeling of necessity that underlies each poem there is an idea or passion (or both) which strongly compels its utterance. The poems are journeys toward some discovery (as the very best poems always are), toward revelation or satori (sudden illumination). In many cases, the poems push us beyond what we could ever anticipate. Herein lies the pleasure. We leave Donald Young's poems enlightened, deepened and thankful for the keen eye and compassionate heart. Tom McKeown, author of The Luminous Revolver and Three Hundred Tigers

Five Views of Christ in the Old Testament Book Excerpt:

The authors of the New Testament regularly quote and allude to Old Testament passages that point to the presence, person, and work of Jesus. Jesus himself claimed that Moses wrote about him (John 5:46). And on the road to Emmaus, Jesus instructed the disciples from "Moses and all the prophets" regarding himself (Luke 24:27). Though Christians affirm that the Old Testament bears witness to Christ, how the Old Testament writers did this is a matter of extensive debate. Furthermore, Christian biblical scholars also debate the degree to which contemporary interpreters of the Bible can follow the hermeneutics of the New Testament authors in using the Old Testament to point to the person and work of Jesus Christ. Five Views on Christ in the Old Testament is the first book to bring together in conversation the major views on how the Old Testament points to Christ. Contributors and views include: The First Testament Priority View (John Goldingay) The Christotelic View (Tremper Longman III) The Redemptive-Historical Christocentric View (Jason DeRouchie) The Reception-Centered Intertextual View (Havilah Dharamraj) The Premodern View (Craig Carter) Each contributor presents their preferred methodology, showing readers how their interpretive approach best explains the biblical data. Additionally, authors provide case studies of various Old Testament passages that equip readers to better compare the strengths and weaknesses of each of author's approaches. This essential resource will help readers learn practical steps to help them read the Old Testament more faithfully as it testifies to Jesus the Messiah.

Understanding Old Testament Theology Book Excerpt:

Over the past century the field of Old Testament studies has seen an explosion of theologies of the Old Testament, a trend that has only intensified in the past ten or twenty years. This proliferation of literature has made it difficult for students, pastors, laity--and even scholars--to keep up with. In Understanding Old Testament Theology, professors Brittany Kim and Charlie Trimm clearly organize and explain the myriad contemporary approaches to Old Testament theology. The book begins by highlighting the flash points that have produced such a wide range of Old Testament theologies and presents a brief history of the discipline. It then explores various approaches to Old Testament theology in seven chapters, divided into three parts. Part I examines approaches that ground Old Testament theology in history. Part II surveys approaches that foreground Old Testament theme(s). Finally, Part III considers approaches that highlight different contexts for doing Old Testament theology. Each main chapter describes both common features of the approach and points of tension and then offers a test case illuminating how it has been applied to the book of Exodus. Accessible and unique, Understanding Old Testament Theology provides the only summary introduction of its kind to the field of Old Testament biblical theology.
