Most widely held works by Samuel L Terrien
Till the heart sings : a biblical theology of manhood & womanhood by Samuel L Terrien( Book )

22 editions published between 1985 and 2004 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book argues that the Bible as a whole advances a theology of manhood and womanhood unique in the ancient world. This theology, which resides in the main thrust of Scripture, turns away from sexism and misogyny to confer upon woman as well as man the full stature of humanity." "Terrien begins his argument where the Bible itself begins, with creation. He describes the first woman as "the crown of creation," in a mutual relationship with the first man. He then proceeds through Scripture - including the prophets, the Wisdom literature, the Gospels, and the Pauline letters - systematically showing that when the books of the Old and New Testaments are viewed in their historical growth, they reveal a theology of manhood and womanhood that runs counter to both traditional Judaism and Christianity and to modern religious attitudes and practices." "In the course of his thorough analysis of Scripture, Terrien examines a host of themes bearing on the issues of gender and personhood, from the myth of the Garden and the eros-agape continuum in the Song of Songs to male overreaction to sexual mysticism and the Gnostic personification of wisdom. Terrien also explores matters related to marriage, homosexuality, and male and female priesthood, all with the aim of uncovering a truly biblical understanding of the relationship between the genders and between all people and God."--Jacket

The iconography of Job through the centuries : artists as Biblical interpreters by Samuel L Terrien( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This rich interdisciplinary work reveals for the first time that Jobian artists saw in the ancient hero not only the prophet of a new life or the model of revolt and faith but also - and surprisingly - the intercessor of sexual reprobates, the patron saint of musicians, and, in modern times, the existential man
The Psalms : strophic structure and theological commentary by Samuel L Terrien( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book's clearly written introduction treats such subjects as the longevity and ecumenicity of the psalms, their Near Eastern background, the Hebrew text and ancient versions, their music, their strophic structure, their literary genre, and their relations to the New Testament. In the commentary itself Terrien freshly elucidates the theological significance of these collected poems by putting readers in touch with the formal versatility and religious passion of the psalmists themselves. While Terrien always engages in scientific exegesis before drawing theological conclusions, he is careful to allow full expression to the theological - and, especially, the doxological - voice of these unmatched spiritual songs. The result is a commentary that provides a link between the archaic language of Psalms and the intellectual demands of modern thinking and spirituality

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Magnificat, the song which, according to the Gospel of Luke, Mary sings to Elizabeth, is a mainstay in the liturgies of both the Eastern and Western churches. In this remarkable new book, distinguished educator and scholar Samuel Terrien probes the depths of this poem by a lucid discussion of both recent biblical scholarship and the power of religious music, and then illuminates the text through selected musical excerpts from the greatest compositions of the last six centuries."--BOOK JACKET
