Reading the Old Testament with the Ancient Church: Exploring the Formation of Early Christian Thought

(Paperback - Sep 2007)
$24.00 - Online Price

Overview

The contemporary church dismisses Christianity's foundational Scriptures at its own peril. However, the teachings of the Old Testament are less and less at the center of congregational preaching and conversation. The early church fathers--visionaries such as Augustine, Origen, and Tertullian--embraced the Hebrew Scriptures, allowing the Old Testament to play a central role in the formation of their beliefs. As today's Christians struggle to relate to concepts such as the Jewish law and the prophets, pastors and laypersons benefit from looking through the lenses of these thoughtful pioneers. This latest volume in the Evangelical "Ressourcement "series helps the Old Covenant to come alive.
