This is a massive work by a colossal scholar in the field of Old Testament studies. Bruce Waltke is an outstanding scholar; if you can get your hands on any of his works, do it. At nearly 1,000 pages, this isn’t a book that I have read from cover to cover, but a book I’ve used as a reference tool. Part 1 can indeed be read from front to back and is probably meant to be, focusing on the task, method, and overview of Old Testament biblical theology. In Part 2 Waltke moves through the Old Testament book by book, though each book isn’t necessarily covered in one chapter, nor is every book given its own chapter... [Full Review]

Waltke has produced yet another gift to the church, offering a lifetime of labor in this one volume. The exegetical insights contained in this book are enormously helpful. These then lead into strong theological reflection that challenges the reader. Waltke discerns the theme of "the irruption of the Kingdom of God" spread throughout the OT, but doesn't push it where it isn't expressed. Thus, one get a true sense of the unity and diversity within the OT. I deduct a half star from the book because he doesn't always deliver in the "canonical" department. For instance, in his chapter on the Davidic Covenant, he doesn't really show how this is carried into the NT and its portrayal of Jesus. Instead, he discusses the differences in the genealogies of Matthew and Luke, which seems out of place in this book. With that said, this OT Theology is tremendous and well worth the time reading it. Do not let the price and size scare you, it's an easy and rewarding read. Every pastor and teacher should take the time to work through it. [Full Review]
