    Reading Scripture as the Church

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Hermeneutic of Discipleship

    New Explorations in Theology

    by Derek W. Taylor

    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.
