I Am Yahweh offers a formidable combination of the basic thoughts and principles behind Walther Zimmerli's exegetical and theological work, reflecting the rigorous methods he uses in tracing the development of theological formulae through biblical usage.
Zimmerli's compilation demonstrates a clear, disciplined method and careful exegetical insight. These essays cover:
--Old Testament theology
--the prophets (with special emphasis on Ezekiel)
--the crisis of the exile
--the meaning of revelation
Zimmerli has the amazing capacity to move from exegesis to hermeneutics. His work is faithful to the text, yet he is very attentive to the theological implications contained therein. This latest work is destined to become a standard resource and text for seminary instruction and continuing education for pastors.
