Preachers often neglect the Old Testament, misrepresent it, or regard its theological content as superseded by Jesus and the New Testament, Allen and Williamson claim. The authors help preachers avoid these traps by (1) explaining how a text was understood before the Common Era without any reference to Jesus of Christian doctrine, (2) mentioning representative New Testament passages or themes that are informed by the older material, and (3) commenting briefly on the relationship between the lections in those cases when readings from the Old Testament are paired with readings from the New Testament.
Ronald J. Allen is the Nettie Sweeney and Hugh Th. Miller Professor of Preaching and New Testament at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, INClark M. Williamson is Indiana Professor Emeritus of Christian Thought at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, IN.
