Overview

In this first volume of a proposed three-volume Old Testament theology, John Goldingay focuses on narrative. Examining the biblical order of God's creation of and interactions with the world and Israel, he tells the story of Israel's gospel as a series of divine acts. This is an Old Testament theology like no other. Whether applying magnifying or wide-angle lenses, Goldingay is closely attentive to the First Testament's narrative, plot, motifs, tensions and subtleties. Brimming with insight and energy, and postmodern in its ethos, this book will repeatedly reward readers with fresh and challenging perspectives on God and God's ways with Israel and the world—as well as Israel's ways with God.

    This book has been a wonderful read. It invites the reader to see the scripture seriously in the way it is written, sometimes giving little snippets of inside that invites us to challenge our assumptions; For example, relating to Acts 10 the author remembers that “Peter seems to take the vision parabolically rather than literally” but goes on to state that the literal that Peter refuses to acknowledge becomes common understanding in the church. In the same way, the Old testament is taken seriously thought the book, challenging the reader to do so and leaving rabbit-holes to the reader’s “fasting and prayer”as relates to that kind ;-)
