Neglect this read to your own peril. A life changing read Yes, some of it is too speculative, and I made the mistake of puzzling over some bits I should have simply skipped However, the wealth of biblical insights and golden scriptural nuggets are abundantlythan enough to make up for it I can t think of a single author with a greater grasp of the Bible than James Jordan Too often in my reading of scripture, I have been unable to make heads or tails of the s

I remember trying to read this at the emergency room in the middle of the night while waiting for my mom to go into surgery.yeah, it didn t make any sense But it turned into English later, and of course now I dig it. This is Jordan s great primer on biblical theology Here he develops a unique although not new approach to hermeneutics, symbolism and typology This is considered to be one of his most important works, and fundamental to understanding his approach to biblical studies. So good I always forget how good it is and then tell myself I need to re read it I also often wonder if N.T Wright stole from James Jordan, Jordan stole from Wright, or the both of them discovered the same things independently.
