Here’s another book from a professor at DTS: Everlasting Dominion: A Theology of the Old Testament. I have yet to read it. It just came out and I have been waiting to pick up a copy. It’s by Dr. Eugene Merrill, a well known and respected professor of Old Testament at DTS. If you’re a bit rusty on your OT, check this out. Let us remember that ALL of the Bible is God’s inspired Word, not just the New Testament. Don’t just read Psalms and Proverbs! Get into the historical books! Get into the prophets! Get into the Law! Dig deep and labor hard. So dig into the OT and avoid the mistakes of Marcion from church history who wanted nothing to do with the God of the OT with all of His anger and wrath. Marcion only wanted a God of grace, so he threw out the OT. However, the Triune God that we serve is the same God in the OT and the NT. The same God who became a babe in a manger is the same God who commanded the Israelites to slaughter pagan Canaanites, etc. So, go buy a copy of Dr. Merrill’s new book and may it challenge you to see the sweetness of the Old Testament Scriptures anew!
“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalm 119:103
