Gustav Oehler's impressive study of the Old Testament is
rich with historical and theological substance. Part I focuses on the
history of the revelation in the Old Testament from the perspective of
the Biblical people. Oehler explores the many factors that influenced
Divine Revelation and prophecy in the Old Testament. Oehler concludes
this section with two doctrines. The first is the Doctrine of God, in
which he surveys the names and personalities of God revealed in the Old
Testament. The second is the Doctrine of Humankind, which discusses
human nature, human purpose, and human relation to sin. In Part II,
Oehler writes about the Old Testament prophets and the essential
elements of prophecy. Finally, Oehler concludes with Part III, a shorter
section in which he explores wisdom and morality as it is portrayed in
the Old Testament. Oehler's critical and exegetical analysis is filled
with valuable information.
