In this extensively revised and updated edition of The Flowering of Old Testament Theology, Professor Ollenburger provides help for beginning theological students, who are frequently overwhelmed by the proliferation of volumes dealing with Old Testament theology, to say nothing of the variety of approaches used in these works. This textbook has been re-issued with a new title, Old Testament Theology: Flowering and Future, and is now divided into five convenient sections—Part 1: The Background, Part 2: Old Testament Theology’s Renaissance: Walther Eichrodt through Gerhard von Rad, Part 3: Expansion and Variety: Between Gerhard von Rad and Brevard Childs, Part 4: From Brevard Childs to a New Pluralism, and Part 5: Contexts, Perspectives, and Proposals.
Selected essays include key theological statements of Otto Eissfeldt, Walther Eichrodt, Theodorus C. Vriezen, George E. Wright, Gerhard von Rad, Walther Zimmerli, John L. McKenzie, Ronald E. Clements, Walter C. Kaiser Jr., Samuel L. Terrien, Claus Westermann, Brevard S. Childs, Rolf Knierim, Horst D. Preuss, Walter Brueggemann, Paul R. House, Bernhard W. Anderson, Erhard S. Gerstenberger, Hartmut Gese, Phyllis Trible, Jon D. Levenson, John H. Sailhamer, Gunther H. Wittenberg, James Barr, R. W. L. Moberly, and Mark G. Brett.
An appendix contains Johann P. Gabler’s 1787 seminal essay on biblical theology. An extensive bibliography and indexes of authorities and Scripture references conclude the volume.
