The Old Testament and God Craig G. Bartholomew OLD TESTAMENT ORIGINS AND THE QUESTION OF GOD

This book, the first in a four-volume project, examines what we should do with the Old Testament, argues for a critical realist approach, situates the Old Testa- ment against the worldviews of the ancient Near East, and explores Yahweh as he comes to us in the Old Testament.

“For anyone who finds the Old Testament irrepressibly fascinating, this will be an exciting, learned, and coherently argued book.” —RICHARD BAUCKHAM, University of St. Andrews (emeritus) “Who but Bartholomew could have imagined this book, much less actually written it? The Old Testament and God is sure to guide and inspire students and scholars alike.” —MICHAEL J. RHODES, Carey Baptist College
