Editorial Reviews


"McEntire has plunged into a most intractable issue in Old Testament theology, namely, the character of God. While he fully appreciates the ‘God who acts’ who has occupied much previous interpretation, he focuses on the ‘mature’ God of the later tradition who has largely withdrawn from the arena of action. This important book will surely be a major reference point for time to come. With his close attention to the text, McEntire requires a deep rethink of the assumptions and categories of our expository work." --Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
