The volumes in Belief: A Theological Commentary on the Bible from Westminster John Knox Press offer a fresh and invigorating approach to all the books of the Bible. Building on a wide range of sources from biblical studies, the history of theology, the church's liturgical and musical traditions, contemporary culture, and the Christian tradition, noted scholars focus less on traditional historical and literary angles in favor of a theologically focused commentary that considers the contemporary relevance of the texts. This series is an invaluable resource for those who want to probe beyond the backgrounds and words of biblical texts to their deep theological and ethical meanings for the church today.
"Without giving up the requisite attention to the details of the text, the volumes draw upon the rich theological traditions of the past and attend to the continuing theological issues and perplexities of the present." Patrick D. Miller, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary "The interface between biblical texts and constructive theology is never easy or obvious. This welcome series holds great promise for a new engagement at that interface." Walter Brueggemann, Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary
