Product description

From the Back Cover

The Heartbeat of Old Testament Theology is part of the Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology series. The series editor is Craig A. Evans.

"Boda has demonstrated great insight and learning in his numerous previous publications. In The Heartbeat of Old Testament Theology, he now illumines the overall theological message of the Old Testament. This book is must reading for all serious students of the Bible."
--Tremper Longman III, Westmont College

"Wonderfully grounded in close readings of biblical texts, this work is an impressive presentation of key theological trajectories that reveal the person and acts of God across the canon. Boda explores what he labels the narrative, character, and relational creeds of Israel and then connects them to the redemptive purposes for all of creation. His carefully articulated method establishes the Old Testament's own voice before demonstrating its rich and complex ties to the New. Informed, creative, and robust, The Heartbeat of Old Testament Theology is an important contribution!"
--M. Daniel Carroll R. (Rodas), Wheaton College and Graduate School

"Boda, who has penned a number of important biblical-theological studies, here demonstrates his considerable control of the biblical texts in pursuit of what he calls the heartbeat of Old Testament theology. The result is a useful presentation of three creedal rhythms: narrative, character, and relational. Not content to restrict the discussion to the Old Testament, Boda also relates these rhythms to the New Testament and to Christian life more broadly. A sermon and a lengthy appendix round out the volume and show his ideas at work and in action."
--Brent A. Strawn, Emory University

"Boda has written a contemporary Old Testament theology worth reading--learned, reflective, insightful, and relevant. His emphasis on the creedal affirmations that constitute the 'pulse' for theological formulation links back to the fountain of Gerhard von Rad but carries that proposal forward for today. Students and ministers alike will benefit from this work, and it is one I warmly commend."
--Heath A. Thomas, Oklahoma Baptist University
