This book provides non-expert readers with insights and perspectives on a variety of theological themes from the Hebrew Bible. D. N. Premnath compiles scholarly insights on themes such as God, creation and redemption, community, land, law and covenant, royal tradition and prophetic dissent, praise and lament, wisdom, sexuality, violence, and the future. Examples of socio-historical perspectives set the broader historical and cultural contexts for each of the topics. By juxtaposing the socio-historical, and thematic discussions, he places the biblical notions in their historical development and societal manifestations. The discussions also combine broader thematic emphases with attention to specific biblical texts while keeping the technical details to a minimum. Through theological engagement, Premnath draws implications from biblical ideas for contemporary faith and practice. He also addresses some tough questions of biblical interpretation and offers suggestions for dealing with difficult biblical texts.
