Media Reviews
Without giving up the requisite attention to the details of the text, the volumes draw upon the rich theological traditions of the past and attend to the continuing theological issues and perplexities of the present. Patrick D. Miller, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary
The interface between biblical texts and constructive theology is never easy or obvious. This welcome series holds great promise for a new engagement at that interface. Walter Brueggemann, Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary
