Descrizione articolo


The essays in this volume represent a theological interpretation especially focused on the Decalogue and the Psalms. The essays on the Commandments lay out an understanding of them as a kind of constitutional guideline for the life of the community of faith that is then developed in many specific and illustrative ways in the rest of Scripture - legislation, narrative, prophetic oracle, psalm, and wisdom saying.

The various treatments of the Psalms focus especially on the way in which the Psalter is a book of theology as much as it is a collection of hymns and prayers. The final section of the book continues the theological reading of the Old Testament with some specific attention to the methodological issues as well as to aspects of the character of God and the nature of the human.

Contents include: The place of the Decalogue in the Old Testament and its law, The sufficiency and insufficiency of the commandments, Metaphors for the moral, The good neighbor: identity and community through the commandments, The story of the first commandment: the book of exodus, The story of the first commandment: the book of Joshua, The psalms as a meditation on the first commandment, The commandments in the reformed perspective, "That It May Go Well with You" The commandments and the common good,

The ruler in Zion and the hope of the poor: Psalms 9-10 in the context of the Psalter, The poetry of creation: Psalm 104, The hermeneutics of imprecation, Prayer and worship, The Psalter as a book of theology, What is a human being? The anthropology of the Psalter I, The sinful and trusting creature: The anthropology of the Psalter II, Constitution or instruction? The purpose of Deuteronomy, "Slow to Anger" the God of the prophets, What the scriptures principally teach, Theology from below: the theological interpretation of scripture, Man and woman: towards a theological anthropology.


Brevard S. Childs
— Yale University
"The republication of some of Patrick Miller's very best articles is very welcome indeed. His reflections on the Old Testament Commandments are carefully balanced with his well-known interest in the Psalms. His final section on Old Testament theology, although more controversial, shows his sustained wrestling with the application of Scripture by the church in today's world."

Ellen Davis
— Duke University
"One of the very finest of contemporary exegetes, Miller writes on topics and texts of clear relevance to the church and our public life. Pastors, preachers, biblical scholars, and theologians will all be instructed by the wisdom and humility with which he approaches the most pressing and difficult questions of biblical interpretation."

Robin Gallaher Branch
— in Review of Biblical Literature
"Miller's work — always outstanding, always reasoned, always well written — leaves a reader grateful for the chance to be walked through the richness of topics in the biblical text by one who has so profoundly shaped biblical scholarship for decades."
