This, the second of three volumes in John Goldingay's Old Testament Theology, examines the theology of the Old Testament under the major rubrics of God, Israel, The Nightmare (judgment), The Vision (hope), The World, The Nations and Humanity.
In this third volume of his critically acclaimed Old Testament Theology John Goldingay explores the Old Testament vision of Israel's life before God. The first volume focused on the story of God's dealings with Israel, or Israel's gospel. The second volume investigated the beliefs of Israel, or Israel's faith. Now the spotlight falls on the Old Testament's perspective on the life that Israel should live in its present and future, including its worship, prayer and spirituality, as well as its practices, attitudes and ethics before God.
Anyone who has attempted to teach or preach through the prophecy of Isaiah has felt a tension.

In the second volume of his three-volume Old Testament theology, John Goldingay examines the theology of the Old Testament under the major rubrics of God, Israel, the Nightmare (judgment), the Vision (hope), the World, the Nations and Humanity.

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.

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.
