Item description for Theologies in the Old Testament by Erhard S. Gerstenberger & John John Bowden...
Overview Gerstenberger discusses the various theological voices rooted in different social settings within Israel, and concludes with his reflections on how contemporary theology must be contextual to be authentic.
Publishers Description Internationally renowned scholar Erhard Gerstenberger here offers a radical departure from traditional treatments. Rather than a systematic approach to theological topics in the Old Testament, Gerstenberger discusses its various theological voices rooted in different social settings within ancient Israel: the family and clan, the village, the tribal group, and the kingdom. Further, he discusses the variety of Israel's views concerning the divine-polytheism, syncretism, and monotheism. Gerstenberger concludes with his reflections on how contemporary theology is informed by the biblical witness and how it must be contextual and ecumenical in order to be authentic.
