Old Testament Sources

... These recommendations hot off the press at the conclusion of my OT course; Carolyn Sharp's recommendations of commentaries and sources for those preachers and teachers among you.

o Ronald Allen: Holy Root, Holy Branches: Christian Preaching from the Old Testament (Abingdon 1995)

o Ellen Davis: Wondrous Depth: Preaching the Old Testament
(Westminster/John Knox 2005)

o Ellen Davis and Richard Hays: The Art of Reading Scripture

o Terrence Fretheim: God and World in the Old Testament (Abingdon 2005)

o The Interpretation Series (commentary)

o Westminster Bible Companion (commentary – good for scholarship and pastoral concerns)
