Publishers Description Among the several prominent themes in the Bible, the story of Israel is one that has attracted recent attention and study. The biblical story of Israel--in its election, sin, exile and restoration--is a finely articulated drama of the glory and the plight of the universal story of humanity and creation. And the story of Jesus, born from the womb of Israel as its Messiah and true seed of Abraham, provides the redemptive solution to Israel's and the world's plight. This book by C. Marvin Pate, J. Scott Duvall, J. Daniel Hays, E. Randolph Richards, W. Dennis Tucker Jr. and Preben Vang explores the unitive theme of the story of Israel from Genesis to Revelation. Probing each section of Scripture--from Pentateuch, Psalms and Prophets to Gospels, Epistles and Apocalypse--the authors bring the contours of this story to light. From close-up examinations of key texts to panoramic shots of the biblical terrain, The Story of Israel unfolds an intriguing and compelling perspective on biblical theology. And with its features of recommended readings and study questions, it is a textbook suitable for classroom and individual study."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Story of Israel: A Biblical Theology?
Intriguing & Interesting May 25, 2007
The premise of this book is to mount a case for a common theme or thread that runs throughout the entire Bible: The story of Israel. The Story of Israel is the story of Sin - Exile - Restoration. My interest was peaked from the beginning of the book and the authors do an excellent job of maintaining my interest and making an intriguing case. Watching the story of the Bible unfold as viewed through the lens of the overarching story of God's people - Israel - was fascinating and helped better my understanding of Scripture. Highly recommended!
Good, but could be better Apr 20, 2006
This book by Pate, et al, left me wanting more. This crew comes at the issue of Biblical Theology from a progressive dispensationalist perspective, however they do not give their own views full explanation particularly in the chapter on Revelation. As a non-dispensationalist, I was quite interested in seeing their view on the issue. They do make some good insights, but overall I found reading it a bit slow at times. As a student of Scott Hafemann, I should add that they also misrepresent his view of the Old Covenant on p. 219. His actual view is that the Old Covenant is very much over and done with. But that's another issue.
This book is great! Oct 27, 2004
The authors are my college professors, and they have done an amazing job of looking at the entire canon, OT and NT, and putting it into a cohesive framework. From Genesis to Revelation, they have shown the progression of God's redemptive purpose. A must-read for any serious student of the Bible.
