Item Description...
Overview
At last, a much needed missional reading of the Old Testament aimed at showing how Israel became a "missionary people" by opening its Covenant with Yahweh to the nations. James Chukwuma Okoye brilliantly applies his Nigerian background and training at Rome's Biblical Institute and Oxford University to the issue of the mission of Israel among the nations and what that mission means for Christians. In a crucial passage, Okoye observes: "Blessing in the Old Testament is primarily this-worldly . . . even if it entails good relationship with God. Israel never gave up her rooting in this world. Christians must learn from Israel not to over-spiritualize the blessings of her mission.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
God is the Missionary in the Old Testament!  Jul 24, 2008
For most of the Old Testament, James Okoye sees God as the Main Missionary. He was the One who called Abram to be the instrument of His blessing in the world. He was the One who brought Israel out of Egypt to be His people. He chose Israel to be the vehicle by which salvation would be made available to the rest of the world.

It is only later in the OT where we see the people of God embark on mission (Isaiah 49, the book of Jonah, the book of Amos, Nehemiah, Esther, etc).

Okoye says that this mission is not about proselytizing or forcing a set of beliefs on people, but being a shining witness for the greatness of the true God.

I liked the book, but unlike Okoye, I am not on board with the JEDP theory of the assembling of the OT.

But this difference of opinion will not detract from what is a delightful study.
 
For advanced religious scholars.  Oct 4, 2006
Israel And The Nations: A Mission Theology Of The Old Testament by James Chukwuma Okoye (Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at Catholic Theological Union) is a scholarly work that scrutinizes the Old Testament of the Holy Bible and debates the themes of mission and the universality of salvation. Chapters discuss Genesis 1 as a blueprint for mission, interpretations and context of the book of Jonah, the role of Israel as a light to nations, and much more. Biblical quotes are scrutinized in the utmost detail, in this serious-minded analysis written especially for advanced religious scholars.
