About

"An impressive range of scholars. . . . This book constitutes a helpful introductory resource and an important impetus towards theological interpretation of the Old Testament."--Tim Meadowcroft, Colloquium
The groundbreaking Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible (DTIB) introduced readers to key names, theories, and concepts in the field of biblical interpretation. It has been well received by students and pastors, won book awards from Christianity Today and the Catholic Press Association, and was named the ECPA 2006 Christian Book of the Year. Theological Interpretation of the Old Testament features key articles from DTIB, providing readers with a book-by-book theological reading of the Old Testament. The articles are authored by leading scholars and make unique contributions to the study of theological interpretation of Scripture. This handy and affordable text will work particularly well for students in Old Testament/Bible survey courses.

Reviews

"An impressive range of scholars. . . . There is some excellent introductory and overview material in this volume. . . . That many of [the] scholars have established reputations in the fields on which they write means that the book carries considerable potential. And, from the point of view of theological interpretation, there are some very good contributions. . . .There are some real gems of insight from some of the best scholars in the discipline. . . . This book constitutes a helpful introductory resource and an important impetus towards theological interpretation of the Old Testament."--Tim Meadowcroft, Colloquium

"This handy compendium might provide a good textbook for a survey of the OT in an adult Bible fellowship or a church's Bible institute program. Its essays are well written and informative."--William D. Barrick, Master's Seminary Journal

"The book should be useful to pastors, for they have access here to much information in brief compass. Classes in OT survey, whether at the college or graduate level, should find this a most helpful handbook."--Elmer A. Martens, Bulletin for Biblical Research
