Role of Old Testament Theology in Old Testament...
19,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection of essays is drawn from a series of previous collections to which the author has contributed that were designed to honor senior scholars in the discipline of Old Testament study. Each of these essays reflects a distinct intention depending on the nature of the original collection in which they appeared and the scholar who was being honored. Taken together, however, this collection amounts to an articulation of Brueggemann's distinctive approach to theological interpretation of the Old Testament. Already in his major volume on Old Testament theology, Brueggemann proposed a dynamism of tension, dispute, and contradiction as the text of ancient Israel sought to give voice to the mystery of God as a sustaining and disruptive agent in the life of the world. Over a long period of time, this collection reflects the author's growing clarity about the task of Old Testament theology. It further reflects on the nature of the biblical text and the way in which the God who inhabits the text runs beyond all of our attempts to define and explain. These essays reflect not so much on methodological issues, but take up the substantive questions that regularly occupied these ancient text-makers.

The Trial of Innocence

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Synopsis: The Adam and Eve narrative in Genesis 2-3 has gripped not only biblical scholars, but also theologians, artists, philosophers, and almost everyone else. In this engaging study, a master of biblical interpretation provides a close reading of the Yahwist story. As in his other works, LaCocque makes wise use of the Pseudepigrapha and rabbinic interpretations, as well as the full range of modern interpretations. Every reader will be engaged by his insights. Endorsements: 'This book by LaCocque is an important contribution to the numberous studies on the story of paradise. . . . The reading of this book is enriching. The range of material on which L. draws is remarkable. . . . LaCocque's book is original in approach and rich in insights. I highly recommend it to scholars and students alike.' --Catholic Biblical Quarterly 'André LaCocque brings a distinctive style of imagination, interpretation, and articulation to his growing corpus of valuable exposition. Here he probes the thickest text of biblical faith. He goes 'back' to common cultural myths, but then shows how Israel has claimed generic myths for its own peculiar lived experience. And then he goes 'forward' to show how the voiced experience of Israel is paradigmatic for all human reality. Along the way he connects with the demanding interpretive tradition that includes Kierkegaard, Ernest Becker, and Ernst Bloch plus the richness of rabbinic work. The outcome is a compelling invitation to think again, afresh, about texts that have too long been settled in conventional, reductionist ways. LaCocque models the courage needed for reading and demanded by the texts.' --Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary Author Biography: André LaCocque is Professor of Old Testament Emeritus at Chicago Theological Seminary. He is the author of 'The Feminine Unconventional' and 'Romance, She Wrote,' and the coauthor (with Paul Ricoeur) of 'Thinking Biblically: Exegetical and Hermeneutical Studies.'

The Shape and Shaping of the Psalter
45,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The nine essays in this volume originated in the discussions of the Psalms programme unit of the Society of Biblical Literature and a number were first presented as papers at the SBL meetings in 1989 and 1990. The volume documents the growing interest among scholars in understanding the book of Psalms not only as a collection of liturgical materials from ancient Israel and Judah but also as a coherent literary whole. Part I considers the nature and significance of this new approach; it contains essays by J.L. Mays, Roland E. Murphy, Walter Brueggemann, Gerald H. Wilson and David M. Howard, Jr. Part II illustrates the application of this approach and offers preliminary conclusions concerning the shape of the Psalter and its component books; it contains essays by Gerald H. Wilson, Patrick D. Miller, Jr, J. Clinton McCann, Jr. and David M. Howard, Jr.>

Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy Land
49,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A critical examination of political Zionism, a topic often considered taboo in the West, is long overdue. Moreover, the discussion of Christian Zionism is usually confined to Evangelical and fundamentalist settings. The present volume will break the silence currently reigning in many religious, political, and academic circles and, in so doing, will provoke and inspire a new, challenging conversation on theological and ethical issues arising from various aspects of Zionism--a conversation that is vital to the quest for a just peace in Israel and Palestine. The eight authors offer a rich diversity of religious faith, academic research, and practical experience, as they represent all three Abrahamic faiths and five different Christian traditions. Among the many themes that run through Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy Land is the contrast between exclusivist narratives, both biblical and political, and the more inclusive narratives of the prophetic Scriptures, which provide the theological foundation and the moral imperative for human liberation. Readers will be drawn into a compelling, readable, and stimulating series of essays that tackle many of the complex issues that still confound clergy, politicians, diplomats, and academic experts. Desmond Tutu says that silence in the face of injustice is complicity with the injustice. That's why we need more and more Christians to raise their voices about the injustices taking place in Israel-Palestine. To raise their voices, they first need to raise their awareness, and this book is the best book I know of to help individuals and groups be educated and motivated for action. --Brian D. McLaren, author of Naked Spirituality This important collection of essays is situated amid the most vexatious, dangerous geopolitical crisis in the world. The seemingly intractable conflict in the Holy Land that concerns the State of Israel, as well as the status and future of the Palestinians, turns out to be the pivot point for much of the violent anger that leads to destabilization and threatens all parties to the dispute. The focal point of the many different angles in this collection is insistently justice as a precondition of peace in the Holy Land. Thus all 'peace negotiations' are futile if a way is not found to assure justice of a political and economic variety. --from the foreword by Walter Brueggemann, author of The Prophetic Imagination Donald E. Wagner is the National Program Director of Friends of Sabeel: North America. Walter Davis is cochair of the education committee of the Israel/Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and Professor (emeritus) of the Sociology of Religion at San Francisco Theological Seminary.

The Elohist
43,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Though many Old Testament scholars prefer no longer to speak of the Elohist source in the Pentateuch, Gnuse seeks to defend the existence of this pentateuchal tradition by responding to scholarly critics, isolating texts belonging to the source and offering a theological assessment of these texts. Dream reports in ancient Near Eastern texts from the seventh and sixth centuries BCE bear striking familiarity with the biblical dream reports in the Elohist. Prophetic narratives in the books of Samuel and Kings appear to have inspired the subsequent creation of the Elohist narratives in the Pentateuch. Thus, Gnuse situates the Elohist tradition in the seventh century BCE after the fall of the state of Israel in the north in 722 BCE, which is a later date than scholars have attributed to this source in the past. Because of this setting the Elohist texts may be assessed differently than they have been in the past. The texts might have spoken to exiles from the northern state with themes that bespeak devotion to one God, hope of restoration, and absolute obedience to a transcendent deity who is revealed through dreams, fire, and prophets. The author also ponders what these texts say to our modern age. ''In this study, the product of many years of thinking about the Elohist, Robert Gnuse has produced a valuable guide to the central texts and themes of this often overlooked and underappreciated biblical author. The Elohist is well deserving of greater attention, and Gnuse is to be commended for engaging it head-on.'' --Joel Baden, Professor of Hebrew Bible, Yale University ''Robert Gnuse has returned to an old question in the critical study of Israelite tradition. He does so with fresh insight and theological imagination. By mobilizing a wide and deep array of scholarship he exposits a particular strand of the tradition that on the one hand attests the transcendence of God, and on the other exhibits the urgency of civil disobedience. His book is compelling evidence of the way in which critical study of the Scriptures serves contemporary theological interpretation.'' --Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary ''Against the grain of much contemporary scholarship, Gnuse presents a formidable case for the Elohist as a seventh-century BCE source in the Pentateuch. The analysis brilliantly brings the Elohist narratives to life as a northern theological response to the fall of Israel in 722 BCE Gnuse also illustrates the theological relevance of the Elohist to modern readers who struggle with issues like the hiddenness of God, the world-wide increase of refugees, and the insufficient supply of food for many people in the world. Biblical scholars and theologians alike will benefit greatly from this book.'' --Stuart A. Irvine, Louisiana State University ''Robert Gnuse brings an impressive knowledge of Pentateuchal scholarship to bear on the long-debated question of the existence and purpose of the Elohist. He builds a strong case for regarding these traditions as distinct cycles of tales crafted largely during the century after the Assyrian conquest to help the exiles deal theologically with this defeat. Carefully comparing these texts with the early prophetic and later Yahwistic traditions, Gnuse offers an illuminating contribution to the discussion.'' --Douglas A. Knight, Drucilla Moore Buffington Professor of Hebrew Bible, Emeritus, Vanderbilt University Robert Karl Gnuse is the James C.
