Description

What difference would it make for Old Testament theology if we turned our attention from the more dramatic, forceful "mighty acts of God" to the more subdued, but more realistic themes of later writings in the Hebrew Bible? The result, Mark McEntire argues, would be a more mature theology that would enable us to respond more realistically and creatively to the unprecedented challenges of the present age.

"McEntire has plunged into a most intractable issue in Old Testament theology, namely, the character of God. While he fully appreciates the “God who acts” who has occupied much previous interpretation, he focuses on the “mature” God of the later tradition who has largely withdrawn from the arena of action. This important book will surely be a major reference point for time to come. With his close attention to the text, McEntire requires a deep rethink of the assumptions and categories of our expository work."
