The Word Becoming Flesh

  • Author: Horace D. Hummel
  • Publication Date: 1979

This book studies the history, organization, interpreters, and critics of the Old Testament. The author separates theory and speculation from fact and truth regarding the origin, authorship, canonicity, and theology of the Bible. The book examines all 39 books in context and draws out the ‘deep, organic unity’ between the testaments and their center in God’s revelation in Christ. This is a companion volume to The Word of the Lord Grows that looks at the New Testament.

The Word of the Lord Grows

  • Author: Martin H. Franzmann
  • Publication Date: 1961
  • Pages: 314

Franzmann’s book looks at the New Testament writings with an eye on their historical context. He reveals how the events and controversies surrounding the early Christians helped shape the message of the New Testament. It discusses biblical scholarship and authorship, and proposes present day applications of biblical texts.
