Description

How deeply is new revelation rooted in and bound by old revelation, and how far does the old determine or contain the newness of the new? How does the new grow old, how is the old renewed, and what is the pattern – if any – of this process? In this study of the similarities and, equally important, the differences between older and more novel revelation in the Bible, Englezakis analyses these questions and indicates some of the ways in which answers may be found.

A wide-ranging study which combines much original thought and sound scholarship with a deep spirituality, New and Old in God’s Revelation reflects one of the rare encounters of western Biblical scholarship with eastern Christianity.
