Finally, a more accessible discussion of how to make contemporary sense of the Old Testament's many genres and histories! Seminarians, clergy, and biblical scholars haven't always been effective at arguing for a dynamic understanding of scripture that allows for ambiguity and nuanced interpretations. Howard does that clearly and well in this book.

In some streams of Christianity, we've all but ignored the riches of the Old Testament/Hebrew Scriptures, leaving lay people to make their own sense of the readings we hear every week. Dr. Cameron Howard's work would be a great reference for a study on how to read and be shaped by *all* of the Bible, including the Old Testament.
