Reviews - What do customers think about The Old Testament and Process Theology?
Excellent resource albeit a little repetitive May 22, 2008
I really appreciated this book, since it's on a topic few have deigned to cover and it provided many useful (although not necessarily inconspicuous) insights regarding the Hebrew Bible when looked at through the hermeneutic lens of process theology. At times, as already implied, Gnuse will state the obvious to anyone with a basic knowledge of process categories, and he has a penchant for reiterating the same themes throughout, but it's still helpful in many ways to consult this thoughtful distillation of the various ways in which process categories illuminate much of what has been lost or obscured in and by conventional systematic theologies. Also Gnuse demonstrates how process categories may provide the means of resurrecting a meaningful yet critical Biblical theology. That is something which is incredibly exciting to me personally. Having long held a certain degree of apathy in regard to large portions of the Old Testament (as opposed to the New), I have to say my appreciation of the Hebrew scriptures was certainly deepened and intensified by Dr. Gnuse's book and the new perspectives which he provided. If you're a Christian who, like me, has found it difficult to create a place of importance for much of the Old Testament in your reflections on the present value of the Biblical text, then I think this book will be of great help.
