Endorsements

"Walter Brueggemann shows that Old Testament theology is alive and well.... This monumental endeavor offers an abundance of ideas that will carry Old Testament theology well into the twenty-first century."
— Phyllis Trible

"Fresh, comprehensive, and stirring, Theology of the Old Testament is the marvelous culmination of Walter Brueggemann's years of study, writing, and teaching the Bible. Here we have the most comprehensive and important Old Testament theology to arise out of the American scene in this century.... Brueggemann's passion and often abrasive edge, coupled with interpretive skill of the highest order, produce surprising insights into the biblical text. Pastors will grab this book for their study and preaching, and theologians will want to engage it wherever there is a genuine interest in what the Scriptures teach for faith and life."
— Patrick D. Miller, Charles T. Haley Professor of Old Testament Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary

"This truly remarkable book is the first 'postmodern' Old Testament theology, comparable in stature to Eichrodt and von Rad, but in a totally new idiom. Walter Brueggemann seizes the present pluralism of methods and interpretations, which has paralyzed large-scale theologizing, as an opening to the rich pluralism of Israelite witnesses who offer core testimony and countertestimony concerning Yahweh, the Central Character of the Old Testament. It is an accomplishment that will both enthrall and alarm attentive readers as they become members of the 'jury' who are invited to weigh this astonishing testimony."
— Norman K. Gottwald, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, New York Theological Seminary

"After a brilliant introduction that clearly defi nes the position of his work within the present scholarly and theological situation, Walter Brueggemann unfolds 'Israel's testimony' in a far-reaching and thoroughgoing manner. This book will undoubtedly become a milestone in the field of Old Testament theology."
— Rolf Rendtorff, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, University of Heidelberg, Germany

"Walter Brueggemann's weighty volume, done in his own engaged and often compelling style, is a landmark in the field.... Brueggemann stands out as a theologian with an open and critical eye on today's reality.... All in all, this is a formidable, exciting, new, and immensely rich approach to a theology of the Old Testament, which—admitting contextual limitations — ponders the texts in ecumenical perspective, Jewish and Christian dimensions, and current world-prospect...."
— Erhard Gerstenberger, Professor of Old Testament, Philipps-University, Marburg, Germany
