In this new edition of Gerhard von Rad's classic work on the Moses traditions, the reader is provided with a more polished text, cross-references to von Rad's other works, an updated bibliography, Scripture index, and a new foreword by Walter Brueggemann.This volume ""sparkles and snaps with strong interpretive impulses that reflect on von Rad's courage and his clear-headedness about the appeal to its radical promises and its equally radical claims . . . von Rad understood well the continuing contemporeneity of the traditions that cluster around Moses, both as promise and as demand. These are radical invitations to be in the world differently."" . . . There is no ""obvious one-to-one correlation between the ancient dangers of Israel and our contemporary dangers, and von Rad clearly understood that one cannot easily slide from one to the other. His own work shows the difficult way of interpretation in connecting from one context of danger to another that requires interpretive skill and grace."" --Walter Brueggemann, from the ForewordGerhard von Rad (1901-1971) was Professor of Old Testament at the University of Heidelberg and was the premier Old Testament theologian of the twentieth century. Among his many publications are Old Testament Theology, 2 vols. (1962-1965), Wisdom in Israel (1972), and Genesis (rev. ed. 1972).
