Item description for Celebrating the Law?: Rethinking Old Testament Ethics by Hetty Lalleman...
Overview Christians often see the Old Testament law as out of date and irrelevant now that Christ has come. Lalleman rejects this view and makes the case for the ongoing importance of the Law in the Christian life something to celebrate. Most helpfully, Lalleman sets out a model for interpretating Old Testament laws in the context of the whole of the Bible. She interacts with the scholarly literature on the subject in a very readable way and provides some basic biblical principles for integrating the whole of God's word in our lives. Lalleman then fleshes out these principles by applying them to three difficult topics in Old Testament law: food laws, the cancellation of debts and warfare. At the heart of this celebration of the law, she contends, is the wholeness, holiness and integrity of God himself.
