Item description for Images of God in the Old Testament by Mary E. Mills...
Overview Images of God in the Old Testament is about the many faces of the God of Israel as found in the Old Testament. Bringing together a wealth of biblical scholarship, both contemporary and traditional, Mary Mills invites the reader to see the canon of Scripture as a reference library in which all the texts have something to say about God. God is a key character in each book, but God's role and character nevertheless vary between books and between genres of writing. In exploring the nature of "the God of the Old Testament," Images of God in the Old Testament places side by side these different-often contradictory-aspects of the deity and allows them to comment on each other. In a world where all human activity is also the scene of divine action, the God thus revealed is a multifaceted character. This God challenges human beings to find, within the diversity of images and language, the face of the one God, offering each of us a means of communication with the sphere of transcendent order and unity.
