A theology of the Old Testament by John L McKenzie( Book )

29 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A synthesis of the total theological statement of the Old Testament and a thorough investigation of every aspect of theology to be found in that timeless record. Divided into seven sections dealing respectively wit the concept of cult (the religious expression of the Israelite group), the works of the prophets, Israel's history, nature, Wisdom, political forms and social structures, and the whole concept of messianism. These categories, when taken together, provide a path to the God of Israel far more complete than that experienced by any individual. The underlying thesis is that the Old Testament was not a prelude to or forecast of the New Testament, but rather is to be understood as the independent record of the early Israelite community's experiences with their God

Authority in the Church by John L McKenzie( Book )

33 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The simple but immensely significant thesis of the author in this study is that the political paradigms of authority which have been used for centuries simply do not apply to the Church. The Christian community is a unique society, and hence its understanding anduse of authority must also be unique. Shows how unique is Christian authority by showing what understanding of authority Jesus gave to the "society" which he founded. Starts with an exposition of authority in the New Testament, and then traces how Churchmen on differenct levels and at different times have lost sight of the authority uniquely proper to the Church, with a consequent erosion of both Christian authority and Christian freedom
