Reading the Old Testament with the Ancient Church : Exploring the Formation of Early Christian Thought
"Heine's well-informed work will benefit a broad range of readers: pastors, interested laypersons, students, as well as scholars and teachers in biblical and patristic studies. . . . A valuable addition to the continuing evangelical interest in recovering a broad sense of church history, and thus recovering common ground with the Orthodox and Catholic traditions."--Martin C. Albl, Review of Biblical Literature
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 students benefit from looking through the lenses of these thoughtful pioneers. This fourth volume in the Evangelical Ressourcement series helps the Old Covenant to come alive.
