The fifteen essays were written by leading biblical scholars in Europe between 195o and 196o. The editor is a Professor at Heidelberg, and author of a recent book on 'our time in the Old Testament', A Thousand Tears and a Day (us). As he points out, the contributors agree that the Old Testament must be allowed to tell its own story. They are all concerned, however, with the relation between Israel's religious self-interpretation and its history as the research of our time sees it, and they seek valid ways of connecting the two Testaments which together constitute the Christian Bible. The whole intensive discussion shows that Old Testament commentary and Christian theology are no longer kept separate. The contributors include Gerhard von Rad and Walther Eichrodt on the typological interpretation of the Old Testament, Rudolf Bultmann and Walther Zimmerli on prophecy and fulfilment, Martin Noth on the 'representation' in proclamation, J. J. Stamm on Jesus Christ and his Scripture, and Th. C. Vriezen on the biblical doctrine of salvation. There is a bibliography.
