Overview

In The Sources of the Old Testament, James Atwell explains the main ideas found in the Old Testament in their own historic context. One such idea is the significance of creation and the Creator. The reader is led to understand how these ideas formed the broad horizon of biblical theology and raised many of the big questions that are grappled with in the Old Testament. These include nature and the environment, respect for creation, the distinction between Creator and creature, and human destiny. For Atwell, the Hebrew Scriptures “connect us with the initial flowerings of human civilization.” He believes the Hebrew Scriptures have been written from a perspective convinced of God’s involvement in history. Each section ends with a number of questions to link the ideas found in the Old Testament to modern concerns.
