    The Lost World of the Flood

    Mythology, Theology, and the Deluge Debate

    by Tremper Longman III and John H. Walton
    Contributions by Stephen O. Moshier

    The Genesis flood account has been probed and analyzed for centuries. But what might the biblical author have been saying to his ancient audience? In order to rediscover the biblical flood, we must set aside our own cultural and interpretive assumptions and visit the distant world of the ancient Near East. Walton and Longman lead us on this enlightening journey toward a more responsible reading of a timeless biblical narrative.

    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.

    Do We Need the New Testament?

    Letting the Old Testament Speak for Itself

    by John Goldingay

    While many Christians wonder whether we really need the Old Testament, John Goldingay turns the question around: Perhaps Jesus' Bible—the Old Testament—is enough. Goldingay probes our misreading of the Old Testament and brings out the richness of the "First Testament's" message as Israel's and the church's gospel.

    Sinai and the Saints

    Reading Old Covenant Laws for the New Covenant Community

    What should Christians do with all the laws in the Old Testament? James Todd makes a bold claim by contending that as followers of Jesus Christ who stand under a new covenant, Christians are no longer subject to any of the Old Testament laws. With wit and insight, Todd helps us understand how the laws given at Mount Sinai should be read by those called to live as saints.
