Ben Witherington III has reviewed what looks to be a very helpful book, Tremper Longman’s Confronting Old Testament Controversies. Pressing Questions about Evolution, Sexuality, History and Violence.
Based on what I know of Longman & his reputation, and BWIII’s summary, I expect this to be a helpful, excellent book for reading, thinking Christians everywhere (and not just scholars.)
Tremper Longman has written a helpful and important study about some of the most difficult issues the OT raises for Christians. As the subtitle suggests, he will take on the evolution vs. creation debate, the historicity of things like the Fall, the Exodus and the Conquest, the issue of divine violence, and lastly the issue of homosexuality.
