The organizing principle of this volume is Israel's recitation of its history with God, and its goal is to help students come to a critically informed theological understanding of the Old Testament as the church's Scripture. While maintaining its primary focus throughout on theological issues and concerns -- on Israel's faith story -- this volume is informed by both historical and canonical perspectives.
