Haggai$29.00Add to cart
In this distinguished commentary, Wolff is concerned to defend Haggai as much more than a “minor” prophet. He was a man whose feet were placed firmly on the ground, one of the dominating figures of the postexilic community, the main instigator of the rebuilding of the Jerusalem temple, and so responsible for inaugurating a new era in Jewish history. This commentary is verse by verse, includes the text written out for the reader, and offers excellent bibliographical information with detailed footnotes. Most appropriate for scholars and academics, rather than for laypeople who do not have a working knowledge of biblical Hebrew. Hans Walter Wolff is emeritus professor of Old Testament at the University of Heidelberg.
Vitality Of Old Testament Traditions (Revised)$34.00Add to cart
This book offers the best current handling of Pentateuchal traditions as they operated in the past and as they help the church now. Hans Walter Wolff sees Israel’s faith tradition as a continuous kerygmatic response to a variety of cultural challenges. Walter Brueggemann introduces this dynamic view of tradition. Both authors approach the Pentateuch as a treasury of new expressions of faith resulting from conflicts between traditional formulas and changing social conditions. Today’s church can remain spiritually alive only if its traditions continue to be as resilient as they were in the Old Testament community. Wolff and Brueggemann affirm that modern crises of faith should be met with fresh articulations in the manner of ancient Israel– innovative and pertinent if they are strengthened by the relevance of the past.
