Item description for John Calvin'S Exegesis of the Old Testament (Columbia Series in Reformed Theology) by David Puckett...

Overview
John Calvin's reading of the Old Testament was a departure from that of many of his contemporaries. He rejected much of the traditional Christian exegesis of the Old Testament that attempted to to explain it in terms of the New Testament revelation of Christ. He also rejected much of the traditional Jewish exegesis of the Old Testament that favored a more so-called historical approach to the writings. Instead he offered a middle way to interpret the Old Testament scripture with respect to both traditions. David Puckett examines this often-neglected area of study of John Calvin's exegetical reasoning in this comprehensive and fascinating analysis. The Columbia Series in Reformed Theology represents a joint commitment by Columbia Theological Seminary and Westminster John Knox Press to provide theological resources from the Reformed tradition for the church today. This series examines theological and ethical issues that confront church and society in our own particular time and place.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Calvin'S Exegesis of the Old Testament?

Excellent Explanation of Calvin's Exegesis  Apr 18, 2001
This is an incredibly readable and helpful volume! This was assigned by Dr. Peter Enns at Westminster Theological Seminary in our Old Testament class, and I have re-read it, and referred back to it several times. It will particularly help those who desire to understand the continuity, as well as the discontinuity, between the Old and New Testaments. Calvin's exegesis will help the mature Biblical expositor from falling into irresponsible "spiritualizing" and allegorical interpretations of the Old Testament. Buy it! Read it! Tolle, Lege! Tolle, Lege!
