    Including the Stranger

    Foreigners in the Former Prophets

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by David G. Firth
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    The Old Testament, particularly the Former Prophets, has been regarded as having a negative attitude towards foreigners. In this NSBT volume, David Firth argues that the Former Prophets subvert the exclusivist approach in order to show that the people of God are not defined by ethnicity but rather by their willingness to commit themselves to the purposes of Yahweh.

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    by Knut Martin Heim
    Series Editor David G. Firth
    Consulting Editor Tremper Longman III

    The book of Ecclesiastes is probably best known for its repeated refrain that "everything is meaningless," or "vanity." However, a thorough reading demonstrates that this is not its final conclusion. Knut Heim's Tyndale commentary shows that the book is intellectually sophisticated, theologically rich, emotionally deep—and full of humor.

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    Series Editor David G. Firth
    Consulting Editor Tremper Longman III

    Genesis is a book of origins: of the world, of sin, of God's promise of redemption, and of the people of Israel. It serves as a foundation for the New Testament's teaching that Jesus is the fulfillment of God's promise to humankind. In this Tyndale Commentary, Andrew Steinmann offers a thorough exegetical commentary on Genesis, including a reconstructed timeline of events from Abraham's life through to the death of Joseph.

    Bearing God's Name

    Why Sinai Still Matters

    by Carmen Joy Imes
    Foreword by Christopher J. H. Wright

    What does the Old Testament—especially the law—have to do with your Christian life? In this warm, accessible volume, Carmen Joy Imes takes readers back to Sinai, arguing that we've misunderstood the command about "taking the Lord's name in vain."

    The Messianic Vision of the Pentateuch

    by Kevin S. Chen

    Did Moses write about Jesus? Kevin Chen challenges the common view of the Pentateuch as focused primarily on the Mosaic Law, arguing instead that it sets forth a coherent, sweeping vision of the Messiah as the center of its theological message. Building on the work of John Sailhamer, Chen provides a fascinating study and an exegetical basis for a Christ-centered biblical theology.
