The Old

Here is an interesting review by Steve Moyise on one of those awful “views” books. One gets the feeling that Moyise doesn’t really have the time to be bothered with the review, and who could blame him, even the cover of the book is clichéd.

Now I am deeply interested in the subject of the NT use of the OT, or at least the NT use of other texts, and what happens to texts when they are re-used in new contexts, but less concerned with how this book is framed.

But all that aside, Moyise does a wonderful job taking to task Kaiser’s rather antiquated views. If you are in the market for a book that grapples with this topic I suggest skipping this book and heading straight to more interesting treatments of the subject.

Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul, Evoking Scripture: Seeing the Old Testament in the New, or Inspiration and Incarnation: Evangelicals and the Problem of the Old Testament.
