Sailhammer, John. H., Introduction to Old Testament Theology: A Canonical Approach. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1995. This book reviews the history and achievements of OT Theology, but does so with a thematic and methodological concern that goes beyond a mere bibliographic survey. Miller, P. D. The Religion of Ancient Israel. Louisville: Westminster/John Knox, 2000. No discussion of the OT theology is adequate without a serious analysis of the actual religious life of ancient Israel. This book is the best current summary of that field. Childs, Brevard S. Old Testament Theology in a Canonical Context. Philadelphia: Fortress, 1985. A survey of the theology of the OT that procedes by topics rather than historically or in canonical order. Von Balthasar, Hans Urs. The Glory of the Lord—A Theological Aesthetics: Vol. VI, Theology: The Old Covenant. San Francisco: Ignatius, 1991, orig. Germ. 1967. This is a hard book! Von Balthasar is a theologian and this book is part of a 7-volume theological work that makes glory the organizing concept and which sets out a theological analysis of beauty. The climax of the work is an analysis of the OT (vol 6) and the NT (vol 7). A significant selection of additional readings will be posted on the Intranet
