This volume in particular is Fretheim's sweeping view of how to read the Old Testament in a way that makes the theology of the Old Testament reveal God as a relational being, who seeks to love, care, and provide for His children. Many theologies of God from the Old Testament portray God as distant from the world, or focus primarily on his attributes and characteristics. This book by Fretheim shows that the God of the Old Testament wants to reveal love and concern for us, His creation.
Creating is the divine eschatological action whereby God brings a new heaven and earth into being...The character of the eventual completion of this creation is revealing of the direction for all of God's prior work, whether in creation or redemption. The books of Genesis and Revelation provide a creational bracket for the Bible, and texts in between are a continuing witness to the purposive work of God toward this new creation.Read more ›
