The Old Testament: Deciphering the Common Heritage of Mankind

   
Miltiadis Konstantinou

Volume VIII of Orthodoxy in Dialogue with the Modern World

“The present volume comprises four studies by the distinguished professor of Old Testament in the School of Theology of the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki, Miltiadis Konstantinou, all of which grapple with questions concerning the character of the Old Testament, part of a volley of questions posed today: How far can a Jewish book have anything to do with us? How do we explain the violence that fills its pages? And in the final analysis, how much of the Old Testament is history and how much is symbolism? Speaking in a contemporary idiom, Miltiadis Konstantinou throws light on a whole series of confusions, gaps in knowledge and misreadings by which believers and unbelievers alike are in fact burdened. The result is a book that is truly useful.”
