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. This edition is enlarged and updated by a Postscript, which takes note of ongoing discussions in the field of Old Testament studies since the 1980s. It sketches three major new developments in Old Testament interpretation: sociological analysis, literary study (especially of the narrative form) and canonical criticism. Of the first edition of Professor John Barton (Oxford University) said in the Journal of Theological Studies "On any terms it is a major contribution to understanding the shifting currents of the twentieth-century debate about the status, function, and interpretation of the Old Testament in the church.?

Reviews - What do customers think about Approaches to Old Testament Interpretation?

an excellent, balanced summary of the issue  Apr 1, 2001
Goldingay's book gave me a good overview of an issue that I have often struggled with: how should a Christian interpret and apply the old testament?

His other books on old testament interpretation, which i have not read yet, apparently go into more depth on the issues, but if you are new to the subject, this would be a good book to have.

The extensive bibliography of relevant books also adds significantly to the book's worth, in my opinion.
