BOOK REVIEW: INFLUENTIAL OLD TESTAMENT THEOLOGIES

Recently, on Facebook, an editor asked some biblical scholars to share what books got us interested in biblical studies. As I look back, what really got me excited were books that invited me into knowing God more through the Old Testament in light of the bigger story of Scripture. In this reflection, I will share about three such books. None of these books would qualify as “Old Testament theologies,” yet I reckon that they have had a far greater theological impact upon me than anything I have read in the field of Old Testament theology.
