Item Description...
Overview
By examing the central role of the Old Testament played in the formation of Christian thinking in the early church, this new addition to the Evangelical Ressourcement series renews the church's understanding of the older testament for today.

Publishers Description
The contemporary church dismisses Christianity's foundational Scriptures at its own peril. However, the teachings of the Old Testament are less and less at the center of congregational preaching and conversation. The early church fathers--visionaries such as Augustine, Origen, and Tertullian--embraced the Hebrew Scriptures, allowing the Old Testament to play a central role in the formation of their beliefs. As today's Christians struggle to relate to concepts such as the Jewish law and the prophets, pastors and laypersons benefit from looking through the lenses of these thoughtful pioneers. This latest volume in the Evangelical "Ressourcement "series helps the Old Covenant to come alive.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Yet another in a fantastic series  Jun 16, 2008
In this thorough and scholarly addition to the Evangelical Ressourcement series, Prof. Heine provides deep insights into the Christian (and particularly Protestant) use of the Old Testament. The introduction is an interesting summary of how Protestant views of the Old Testament have developed since the reformation. Then, admitting the Protestant tendency to ignore developments that predate the reformation, Professor Heine guides us on a journey through the early church fathers and their use of the Old Testament. It is refreshing to see, in this entire series, an awakening within Protestant scholars to the vast wealth they once tended to ignore.

Overall, it is a fair and balanced study. But, it seems Professor Heine continues to cling to the idea of scripture as a sole authority outside the guidance of the church as interpreter. The entire series seems to suffer the same Evangelical Protestant assumptions. On the one hand they correctly identify the Church as our interpretative guide - and on the other they all continue to assert the concept of scripture alone. The contradiction seems obvious but is seldom addressed. The quotation from Jerome in this volume seems to fly in the face of those assumptions, "You are not able to enter into the Holy Scriptures without a guide to show you the way."

Overall, a great work and an important addition to the study of scripture. Very highly recommended. The curious student will also find the Yves Congar classic, The Meaning of Tradition very helpful in rounding out this topic.
