In what sense is the Old Testament authoritative Scripture - a source of the church's faith and practice? What place does the Old Testament legitimately occupy in the Christian Bible and in the church's proclamation? These are the questions that challenge every minister as he faces the question of how - and at times even whether or not - to preach from the Old Testament. He is concerned because often he is not on solid ground in dealing with the basic problem of its authority. Writing here with clarity and conviction, Dr. Bright develops hermeneutical principles he believes should guide the minister in his daily use of the Old Testament. He deals with the fundamental questions of biblical authority, reviews unsatisfactory solutions. He explains how these principles can be implemented in preaching and, by the use of concrete illustrations, demonstrates how they can be put into everyday practice. The author's overriding concern throughout is in place both Testaments in their rightful place in the church as the norm for her preaching and as the supreme rule of faith and practice.
