Book Information

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 pastors and students, 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, including Daniel I. Block, Tremper Longman III, J. Gordon McConville, Walter Moberly, Richard Schultz, and Gordon J. Wenham. This handy and affordable text will work particularly well for students in Old Testament/Bible survey courses, pastors, and lay readers.

All the articles in this volume were previously published in Kevin J. Vanhoozer, ed., Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible (Baker, 2005). The Book-by-Book Survey merely reprints the thirty-six articles on the various books of the Hebrew Bible, preceded by a lengthy introduction by Vanhoozer. In this review, I will focus much of my attention on the introduction, which provides a rationale for the book and the “theological interpretation” movement as a whole. As with the companion volume on the New Testament (Theological Interpretation of the New Testament: A Book-by-Book Survey), the authors are mostly British-trained scholars, and most teach in U.K. universities or conservative North American seminaries. Many are reliable old hands, but there are also a number of fresh faces. In order, they are: Gordon Wenham (Genesis), Walter Moberly (Exodus), Paul Redditt (Leviticus), Kent Sparks (Numbers), Daniel Block (Deuteronomy), J. G. McConville (Joshua), Alan Groves (Judges), Murray Gow (Ruth), Brian Kelly (Samuel), Richard Hess (Kings), Mark Throntveit (Chronicles), John Bimson (Ezra and Nehemiah), Paul Redditt (Esther), Lindsay Wilson (Job), J. Clinton McCann Jr. (Psalms), Raymond Van Leeuwen (Proverbs), Craig Bartholomew (Ecclesiastes), Tremper Longman III (Song of Songs), Richard Schultz (Isaiah), J. G. [Full Review]
