First Sentence
Since not everyone is agreed on what Old Testament theology is or should be, we begin this work with an attempt to clarify for the reader our own understanding of its nature. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Scholarly Old Testament Theology 19 April 2005
By theologicalresearcher - Published on
This book is for those who want an OT theology that is very detailed, highly-technical, and painstakingly exegetical. Sailhamer's book is not like the other OT theology books (e.g., Brevard Childs, Walter Kaiser, Eugene Merrill and Roy Zuck, Ralph Smith, and Bruce Waltke) that deal primarily with themes, messages, and ideas of the OT. The book is primarily hermeneutical and methodological (in fact, the major portion of the book [pp. 29-194] deals with methodology!). If one is looking for a thematical OT theology this book is not for you (try Kaiser, Smith, or Waltke). However, this is an excellent book for those who like to get into the nitty-gritty of OT exegesis and theological methodology. It is a difficult book to read so this book isn't for those who like to cruise through a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canonical Theology 2 July 2009
By J. Barginear - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this book is a serious study of Old Testament Theology."In-Texuality" "Inner Texuality" "inter-texuality" and "Con -Texuality" is the method of exegesis that Dr. Sailhamer explains. He comes from a process of Hermeneutic; Text, Canon, Confessional and diachronic (the opposite views are explained also). Then in the Appendix A he presented an aspect of compositional strategy of Pentateuch, titled:
The Mosaic Law and the Theology of the Pentateuch, Appendix B: Compositional Strategies in the Pentateuch. Also, there is an Appendix C and D
4.0 out of 5 stars A great teacher 20 May 2014
By J. Westlund - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dr. Sailhamer is a great teacher in the field of the Hebrew language. This volume is valuable, though not as much as I hoped. I find the canonical approach, while certainly valuable, not as valuable as I had hoped.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle PC is NOT for students. 24 April 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my text book and I was hoping to get quick download which was very easy. However, I can't seem to
see page numbers on PC version. I checked the settings but there is no setting.
There's nothing wrong with the book but minor inconvenience using Kindle PC version.
