Wisdom in Israel by Gerhard von Rad( Book )

71 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic text, the last major work by the great Hebrew Bible scholar Gerhard von Rad, has long been unavailable in North America. It is now being reissued in paperback from to satisfy the continuing demand for copies of the book. In brief, the subject of von Rad's study of Hebrew wisdom is Israel's willingness to ground faith in encounter with the world as the creation of God. Those familiar with the author's Old Testament Theology will recall how he identified two great watersheds in the history of Israel's thought. The first was the rise of the prophetic movement, which occasioned a radi
Genesis: a commentary by Gerhard von Rad( Book )

162 editions published between 1949 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes available to English-speaking students a work that in the original German has achieved the status of a theological classic. This revised edition contains the extensive changes prepared by the author before his death. The introduction has been largely rewritten and the early chapters of the commentary have been reworked with equal thoroughness. Parts 1 and 2 have been entirely reset, and minor alterations have been made in part 3. Professor von Rad has utilized the results of literary criticism and form criticism in producing a commentary that is exegetical, historical, and above all, theological. In every phase of the panoramic pageant the reader sees the God of Israel reaffirming the terms of his covenant and working out his great historical purposes in spite of, and even through, the disobedient acts of willful, headstrong men. - Jacket flap
Old Testament theology by Gerhard von Rad( Book )

29 editions published between 1962 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Gerhard von Rad, of Heidelberg University, is recognized as a truly pioneering figure in biblical studies. In Old Testament Theology he applies the most advanced results of form criticism to develop a new understanding of the Bible. His original approach is here available for the first time in English. The author shows how the Old Testament text grew out of earlier experiences of God's involvement in the life of Israel. The biblical writings witness to the continued activity of God upon his people and the world. Each part of the Old Testament is seen as a particular historical response to God's action. - Jacket flap
Deuteronomy; a commentary by Gerhard von Rad( Book )

71 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proposal here is that Deuteronomy in its final form belongs to the form of covenants of the office-bearers. The contents of Deuteronomy come to us out of a long practice of Levitical preaching which drew upon legal and traditionary elements of the most varied sorts and origins. The martial spirit which dominates the whole work bespeaks an origin in circles where the old traditions of holy war were preserved; this militant piety, together with literary and other considerations, points to the era of the late eighth to late seventh centuries for the formation of the book and its connection finally with Josiah. The theological importance of the book centers in the fact that never before had there been such an all-inclusive treatment of the traditions of Israel in terms of loyalty to one God and his worship at one place; and it was forthcoming at a time of unparalleled threat to the existence of the nation and its distinctive worship. Von Rad's commentary begins with a discussion of the literary form of Deuteronomy, the material peculiar to the book, and its origin and purpose. This is followed by a verse-by-verse commentary on the entire book
