Publishers Description In this book, John Goldingay examines five approaches to the interpretation of the Old Testament: as a faith, a way of life, the story of salvation, witness to Christ, and Scripture. Dr. Goldingay has a detailed knowledge of an enormous range of scholarly literature. His carefully considered evaluations of the works of other scholars are a helpful guide to the key issues which often tend to be submerged by the intricacies of scholarly debate.
