Item Description...
Overview
In this stimulating exposition, Stephen Dempster argues that, despite its undoubted literary diversity, the Hebrew Bible possesses a remarkable structural and conceptual unity. The various genres and books are placed within a comprehensive narrative framework which provides an overarching literary and historical context. The many texts contribute to this larger text, and find their meaning and significance within its story of 'dominion and dynasty', which ranges from Adam to the Son of Man to David, and to a coming Davidic king.

Publishers Description
Christian theologians rarely study the Old Testament in its final Hebrew canonical form, even though this was very likely the Bible used by Jesus and the early church. However, once read as a whole, the larger structure of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) provides a "wide-angle lens" through which its contents can be viewed. In this stimulating exposition, Stephen G. Dempster argues that, despite its undoubted literary diversity, the Hebrew Bible possesses a remarkable structural and conceptual unity. The various genres and books are placed within a comprehensive narrative framework which provides an overarching literary and historical context. The many texts contribute to this larger text, and find their meaning and significance within its story of "dominion and dynasty," which ranges from Adam to the Son of Man, from David to the coming Davidic king.

Great for study or reflection  Nov 2, 2006
Dominion and Dynasty: A Theology of the Hebrew Bible by Stephen G. Dempster is 15th in the New Studies in Biblical Theology series by Inter-Varsity Press.

The series is aimed at helping thinking Christians understand the Bible better by instructing and edifying, marrying mind and heart. It fulfills this goal. It is a bit academic yet certainly accessible to the "thinking" person for whom it is written. It is very readable and certainly recommended as a supplement to Bible study, classes stressing the Old Testament, and personal devotional reading in conjunction with Scripture.

In his preface, Dempster indicates this work is a result of his looking at the Old Testament for general contours, not details, after being concerned he was missing the forest for the trees. Thus, this book is a welcome supplement to detailed commentaries in which the "trees" and even their tiniest branches are dissected. There is a place for both, and Dempster provides a valuable counter-balance both for academics and personal reflection.

His thesis regarding biblical theology, as described in the introduction, follows: "[I]f it can be shown that literary means that this material has not only an implicit literary cohesion but an explicit unity as well, biblical theology may get a fresh hearing." (p. 37) This approach deserves to be heard. The author's understanding of genres makes his reading of the Tanakh "literary" in the true sense of the word: how the ancient contemporary reader understood the text. And his view of the unity and integrity of the writing echoes Catholic teaching. Reading the Bible with a "hermeneutic of charity rather than of suspicion" (p.42) presumes unity and coherence of the Word of God. Should we expect anything less?

Dempster's thorough survey of the books of the Tanakh really adds value to the reading of the sacred page by providing insights, particularly regarding his overarching theme of "dominion and dynasty." The prominence of land and genealogy is no surprise to Christian worshipers and even the casual reader of the Bible ("Promised Land" and lots of "begats"). But the author's unique focus on these themes in the Tanakh adds a valuable volume to the literature.

Finally, Dempster briefly mentions the New Testament and typology. It immediately brings to mind Augustine's famous quote: "The New Testament lies hidden in the Old and the Old Testament is unveiled in the New." (CCC 129) The amount of typology within the Old Testament is enlightening in itself and Dempster does a service in pointing out so much of it. Generally speaking it is not something to which the modern reader is nearly as much attuned as Old vs. New. But touching upon the New Testament makes me look forward to a sequel that treats this in the same depth the author treats the Tanakh.
 
Best book on OT theology I've read  Sep 18, 2006
This is without doubt the best book on Old Testament theology that I have yet read. I don't have time for a full review, but in brief, Dempster traces the twin themes of geneology and geography (seed and land/dynasty and dominion) throughout the Old Testament Hebrew canon (the order of the books in Hebrew is different from our English canon) and shows them to be the unifying themes of the Old Testament.

Dempster's book did something more for me than even Graeme Goldsworthy's excellent book Gospel and Kingdom (which hitherto has been my favorite book on the Old Testament). Goldsworthy's book gave me an understandable outline of redemptive history in broad brush strokes. And it was invaluable to me, and really the foundation for understanding Dempster's book. But Dempster added to those broad brush strokes color and texture. Whereas Goldsworthy framed the puzzle for me, Dempster started putting significant pieces into place. So, really the two books complimented one another.

Be warned: Goldsworthy writes for the layman, but Dempster writes on a more academic level. But that doesn't mean his book is boring. Far from it! It really is one of the most compelling books I've ever read. If you want to read a book that will help you make better sense of the Bible and open your eyes to see just how interwoven the tapesty of the Old Testament actually is, get Dempster. It is a great book and one that I am sure I will return to over and over again for many years.
 
Easy to Read, Great Content  Dec 7, 2004
Dempster's work is one of the latest in the New Studies in Biblical Theology Series. Of all the books I have seen in this series, this one is probably the closest to a pure Biblical Theology. Dempster traces two main themes throughout the Hebrew Canon (he adopts a canonical view using the Hebrew canon, not the Septuagint order we have in our English Bibles) of Dominion and Dynasty. The reason I say this is probably the closest to a pure Biblical Theology is because Dempster does not step out of the pages of Scripture to trace these themes. He does not look to historical evidence or other event oriented material, but simply looks at how the Pentateuch sets up the necessity of Messiah and the gift of the land to the people Israel. He then looks at the Prophets and Writings sections of the corpus and sees how they interpret and further realize the hopes for Israel found in the Pentateuch. This book is informative and a great introduction to the Biblical Theology of the Old Testament because of its macroscopic view. It is simple to read which was one of the goals of the series. I encourage anyone just starting to look at the Bible to those who have been doing Biblical Studies for years to read this book. Another great one is Pentateuch as Narrative by John Sailhamer which takes more of a microscopic look at the Pentateuch and its Theology.
