Theology in Language, Rhetoric, and Beyond
Essays in Old and New Testament
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Those who know Jack Lundbom as a first-rank commentator and exegete will be delighted with this selection of his essays, which range from technical studies of key Old Testament terms of theological importance to reflections on themes across the two Testaments to imaginative readings of familiar texts, such as Psalm 23 and John 20 (against the background of Song of Songs), to personal and pastoral perspectives that are rich and heart-warming and eminently readable. Theology in Language, Rhetoric, and Beyond . . . would be a not inappropriate title for these splendid essays on biblical theology living and applied."
--Robert P. Gordon, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
"Professor Lundbom provides a rich resource for scholars, pastors, and others who seek first-rate scholarship on several critical concepts and themes of Scripture. The essays are brief and clear, reflecting the best of contemporary studies in Hebrew Scripture. Whether exploring the meaning of grace, forgiveness, or God's wrath, these essays are a must for the serious student of the Bible. Of particular note is the way in which Lundbom weaves together the story of early Christianity with the more recent founding of churches in Africa and Asia. A working teacher or preacher should have this resource at hand."
