The Old Testament raises far-reaching issues for the Christian faith. In his valuable historical study Kraeling surveys Christian attitudes to the Old Testament since the Reformation. He offers with scholarly precision and thoroughness an overview of the arguments and attitudes revealed in the massive debates on the Old Testament which have wracked Christendom during the last five centuries. He shows the reactions of Christian scholars to the Old Testament and how these affected the attitude of the Church. This book offers the general reader as well as the Bible student an understanding of the role of the Old Testament in the life of the Church and in Biblical scholarship. It also reveals the profound impact of the Old Testament on the understanding of the New.
