    God's Mediators

    A Biblical Theology of Priesthood

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by Andrew S. Malone
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    There are many investigations of the Old Testament priests and the New Testament’s appropriation of such imagery for Jesus Christ. There are also studies of Israel’s corporate priesthood and what this means for the priesthood of God’s new covenant people. In this NSBT volume, Andrew S. Malone traces these two distinct threads and their intersection through Scripture with an eye to the contemporary Christian relevance.

    Judges and Ruth

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    by Mary J. Evans

    The book of Judges presents Israel’s need for deliverance and God’s use of flawed leaders to guide his chosen people through a dark period of their history. The book of Ruth tells a smaller story within this narrative, showing God quietly at work in the lives of a few individuals. This replacement Tyndale commentary places each book in its historical and canonical context, examines key theological themes, and addresses issues facing readers today.

    The First Testament

    A New Translation

    by John Goldingay

    Most Bible translations bend the text toward us, making the rough bits more palatable to our modern sensibilities. In this Old Testament translation, John Goldingay sets our expectations off balance by inviting us to hear the strange accent of the Hebrew text unbaptized in pious religiosity. Translating consistently, word by word, this unique interpretation allows us to read the sacred text through fresh eyes.

    Proverbs

    An Introduction and Commentary

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    by Lindsay Wilson

    In this replacement Tyndale Commentary on the book of Proverbs, Lindsay Wilson shows how the first nine chapters provide a reading guide for the many proverbs in subsequent chapters; and how the fear of the Lord, choosing wisdom not folly, and having our characters formed by wisdom are crucial for understanding Proverbs as Christian Scripture and living out our faith in daily life.

    Old Testament Theology for Christians

    From Ancient Context to Enduring Belief

    by John H. Walton

    The Old Testament was written for us, but not to us. Inviting us to leave our modern Christian preconceptions behind, John Walton contends that we will only grasp the Old Testament’s theology when we are immersed in its Ancient Near Eastern context, being guided by what the ancient authors intended as they wrote within their cognitive environment.

    Covenant, Retribution, and the Fate of the Canaanites

    by John H. Walton and J. Harvey Walton

Harvey Walton take us on an archeological dig, reframing our questions and excavating the layers of translation and interpretation that cloud our perception of these difficult texts.
