Overview

This is a formidable collection of previously published essays by this distinguished Old Testament scholar. Three significant areas of biblical studies have been a focus of the author's attention throughout his career: the Bible in its ancient Near Eastern world, the Psalms, and Old Testament theology. In Part 1, epigraphic discoveries are examined for the light they shed on biblical texts. In Part 2, special attention is given to the theological significance of reading the Psalms as a collection. In Part 3, a wide range of theological issues—creation, covenant, prayer, cosmology, canon, and especially the nature and character of God—are taken up in various essays that suggest how biblical theology can contribute to the larger theological enterprise.
