This volume explores the theological heartbeat of the Old Testament by examining three big ideas that communicate the Old Testament's redemptive theology. Highly respected scholar Mark Boda shows how three creedal expressions--the narrative, character, and relational creeds--recur throughout the Old Testament and express its core redemptive theology, in turn revealing how the redemptive pulse of God expands to all of creation. He also traces these redemptive and creational pulses into the New Testament and shows their relevance for today's Christian community.

Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology
Craig A. Evans, General Editor
T he last two decades have witnessed dramatic developments in biblical and theological study. Full-time academics can scarcely keep up with fresh discoveries, recently published primary texts, ongoing archaeological work, new exegetical proposals, experiments in methods and hermeneutics, and innovative theological syntheses. For students and nonspecialists, these developments are confusing and daunting. What has been needed is a series of succinct studies that assess these issues and present their findings in a way that students, pastors, laity, and nonspecialists will find accessible and rewarding. Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology, sponsored by Acadia Divinity College in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and in conjunction with the college’s Hayward Lectureship, constitutes such a series.
The Hayward Lectureship has brought to Acadia many distinguished scholars of Bible and theology, such as Sir Robin Barbour, John Bright, Leander Keck, Helmut Koester, Richard Longenecker, Martin Marty, Jaroslav Pelikan, Ian Rennie, James Sanders, and Eduard Schweizer. The Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology series reflects this rich heritage.
These studies are designed to guide readers through the ever more complicated maze of critical, interpretative, and theological discussion taking place today. But these studies are not introductory in nature; nor are they mere surveys. Authored by leading authorities in the field, the Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology series offers critical assessments of the major issues that the church faces in the twenty-first century. Readers will gain the requisite orientation and fresh understanding of the important issues that will enable them to take part meaningfully in discussion and debate.

Reflection on the topics within this volume began many years ago as I was embarking on my doctoral studies at the University of Cambridge. I was told that British doctorates produced great researchers because of the singular focus on a dissertation on a limited topic or portion of text, while American doctorates were more conducive to teaching because of the demand of coursework, comprehensive exams, and dissertation. Knowing that I would most likely teach introductory courses in OT in North America, I carefully chose my dissertation topic: Neh. 9. It was a special passage, one that recited the entire history of Israel from creation to exile. And my method was primarily traditio-historical, that is, investigating the relationship of this prayerful recitation of the story of Israel to the rest of the OT. My hope was to gain comprehensive exposure to the content and critical study of the OT while remaining limited to a single passage. I was first exposed to Neh. 9 through Gerhard von Rad and his careful work on the short historical creeds. I was drawn to von Rad because he provided a critical approach to the redemptive-historical approach that I had learned from followers of the Old Princeton theologian Geerhardus Vos. Thus, as I began my journey into the academic study of the OT through Neh. 9, I was motivated by my interest in OT and Biblical Theology, and it is a relief to finally have an opportunity to express more fully my thoughts on the inner structure of OT theology. The influence of Neh. 9 and von Rad will be evident from the beginning, but it will soon become clear that I’ve discovered much, much more as I have explored the OT over the past twenty years.
My students were the first to hear lectures on the topics that I investigate in this book. I used early expressions of my thoughts found in this book as my lecture for students when I was candidating at Canadian Theological Seminary and McMaster Divinity College. I chose these lectures because they expressed my passion and identity as an OT scholar, that is, that I was interested in its theological message. But it was the Hayward Lectureship at Acadia Divinity College, Acadia University on October 21–23, 2013, that afforded me the opportunity to take my thoughts to a new level and expand them into the present book. I am grateful to Craig Evans for his kind invitation and to the warm hospitality that I enjoyed while in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, especially as I was hosted by Craig and Virginia Evans and Glen and Darlene Wooden. The opportunities to preach at the Manning Memorial Chapel and to spend focused time with students and faculty discussing the content of the lectures were stimulating, and I hope helpful for those who participated. Many thanks to President Harry Gardner for his warm welcome while on campus. Also I am thankful to Jim Kinney at Baker Academic for guiding the process of turning the lecture notes into the present book and patiently waiting for the arrival of the manuscript.
The research and writing of this book have taken place over many years within the academy, and my hope is that this book will be a helpful resource for those mentoring an emerging generation of students of the Bible. The book showcases an approach to the core theology of the OT that not only engage
