In these lectures, first delivered in 1993, Dennis F. Kinlaw shows that there is indeed a single theology that rings through the pages of the Old Testament. That theology is centered in the unchanging nature of the transcendent Yahweh. Kinlaw does not slight the diversities of the text, but uses those diversities to underline the amazing consistency to be found in the treatment of Yahweh and in the understanding of the world arising from that perspective.
Although it has been seventeen years since these lectures were first given, Kinlaw's penetrating grasp of, and love for, the text and its message makes the content as fresh as tomorrow. Anyone looking for a broad introduction to Old Testament theology will benefit from reading this book, but so will those who desire nothing more than to have their love for Yahweh rekindled.
