THE OLD TESTAMENT FOR A COMPLEX WORLD How the Bible’s Dynamic Testimony Points to New Life for the Church Cameron B. R. Howard

This book demonstrates how critical study of the Old Testament helps us understand the Bible as a dynamic testimony for our changing future.

“The problems that beset church and society are profound and ever more evident in the tattering of our daily lives. Yet one resource of enormous profundity sits right before us, largely unopened, unread. In this inspiring book, Howard unleashes the Old Testament’s power to address what ails us and to point us toward a more flourishing world for all.” —JACQUELINE LAPSLEY, Princeton Theological Seminary “This illuminating and beautifully written book shows us how the ‘iconically old’ Old Testament from bygone ‘Bible times’ nevertheless reflects a truly dynamic ethos. Here is a volume that can change and help the church, those who belong to it, and those who serve it.” —BRENT A. STRAWN, Duke University

SCRIPTURE AS COMMUNICATION Introducing Biblical Hermeneutics, 2nd ed. Jeannine K. Brown

This guide to the theory and practice of biblical hermeneutics explores a communication model as an effective approach to interpreting the Bible. The second edition has been revised and updated throughout.

“ Scripture as Communication is the mainstay in my hermeneutics course, and Brown’s second edition adds broader biblical scope and greater attention to both ancient historical context and non-Western perspectives. For readers who want to listen to the Bible better, there is no better book to help achieve a more faithful reading.” —LYNN H. COHICK, Northern Seminary “Brown’s accessible treatment of complex topics, illustrated with examples from both Scripture and daily life, will be helpful to theo- logical students and instructors alike.” —MICHAEL J. GORMAN, St. Mary’s Seminary & University
