Professor Gerhard von Rad, of Heidelberg University, is recognized as a truly pioneering figure in biblical studies.

The biblical writings witness to the continued activity of God upon his people and the world. Each part of the Old Testament is seen as a particular historical response to God's action. - Jacket flap.
