About-

The Divine Election of Israel offers a comprehensive examination of Yahweh's election of Old Testament Israel. By means of a detailed, incisive, and fruitful philological-semantic analysis of the Bible's Hebrew text, Seock-Tae Sohn explores the connection between election and other major themes such as covenant, rejection, remnant and restoration. Sohn traces the historical development of the idea of election, and delineates the New Testament reflections of Old Testament election imagery. His discerning study not only expands our understanding of election in the Scriptures but also powerfully demonstrates the linguistic richness and organic unity of the biblical text.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The Divine Election of Israel by Sweock-Tae Sohn is a fine application of the philological method to the investigation of a major theme in the Hebrew Bible, the election of Israel as God's people.... This valuable study shows us the proper way to comprehend theological concepts. The scholar must return to the actual terms, formulae, and metaphors which the Hebrew Bible itself employs to express the special relationship between God and Israel.... Without compromising modern methodology, Seock-Tae Sohn provides us with a guide to theological inquiry. He epitomizes the compatibility of disciplined, scholarly inquiry with religious faith...."
