His actions appear to starkly contrast with the God of grace in the New Testament and with modern notions of justice and propriety. In this short volume Old Testament scholar Walter Kaiser devotes each chapter to a different difficult subject including creation the wrath of God the genocide of the Canaanites Gods knowledge of the future polygamy Satan the view of women and application of the Old Testament law. He addresses each topic in a practical accessible tone with pastoral insight and humor consistently focusing on the Scriptures. The reader will find that there are not two different gods in the Bible and that the Old Testament is not an antique arti- fact that should now be jettisoned from Christianity. The Old Testament and the God it depicts is One with the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. His actions when properly understood are not at variance with the New Testament rather a view of the beautiful unity in the Bible as a whole will strengthen the churchs faith and aid in Christian witness and apologetics. Walter C. Kaiser Jr. PhD Brandeis University is a promi- nent evangelical Old Testament scholar. He is the Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Old Testament and former president of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton Massachusetts. 14 THOUGHTFUL BOOKS ISBN 978-0-8254-4376-3 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 3 7 6 3 Tough Questions About God and His Actions in the Old Testament Walter C.
