Book Release: Lectures in OT Theology, by Dennis Kinlaw

Posted on | September 14, 2010 | 3 Responses

“Lectures?” Don’t let the word scare you. This book is not just for scholars. It’s for anyone! Dennis Kinlaw has a unique gift for communicating profound Biblical truths in ways that we all can understand. He takes theological insight straight to the heart.

We are thrilled to announce the publication of Dr. Kinlaw’s long-awaited Lectures in Old Testament Theology. This book comes from recorded classroom lectures given by Dr Kinlaw at Asbury Theological Seminary in 1993. Dr. John Oswalt then devoted an entire sabbatical to the initial editing process. The result is a powerful text that truly “speaks” to both the heart and the mind.

Although this is graduate level material Dr. Kinlaw’s unique communication gifts make it accessible to the average layman. The other day a sincere Christian told me that he avoided the Old Testament because it frightened him. It raised more questions than he could answer and sometimes he felt his faith was shaking. I thought to myself, “If he will just read this book Dr. Kinlaw will give the Old Testament back to him.”

Those who know Dr. Kinlaw’s work will recognize in this book many of the major themes that have been foundational in his thinking and preaching. If you have ever asked yourself, “I wonder where he got that particular insight or truth,” you will find that many of them were derived from his deep understanding of the Old Testament.

This book will be cherished for “high-octane” devotional reading and for years of profitable study. It will be useful to students at all levels from graduate school to Sunday School. Kinlaw charts a clear path through the biblical texts back to the heart of Yahweh, and invites creative application of the timeless biblical truths to the challenges of our day. Dr. James E. Harriman created the extensive index which will easily guide you to specific scriptures and themes.

Throughout this work Kinlaw shows the absolute uniqueness of Yahweh among the pagan gods of the ancient near east and obliterates the notion that the Bible is just a collection of borrowed myths from the surrounding cultures. In these pages you will meet the God unlike any other, the God of convenant faithfulness and relentless pursuing love.

    I just ordered the new “Lectures” book by Dr. Kinlaw. I’m searching for a biography of Hugh Latimer, and although I don’t know the title or author, you may be familiar with it since it was a book mentioned often by Dr. Kinlaw and published by Zondervan originally. If you can be of help, I’d be most grateful. As a 1973 graduate of Asbury, I am still benefitting greatly from Dr. Kinlaw’s books, taped messages, and his overall influence in my life. Thanks much! The new website looks marvelous! Ken Abraham

    Glad you like the site, and good to hear from a fellow Asbury grad! I’ll ask around about the Latimer bio.

    Ken Abraham,
    You and I used to work together at Asbury College where you were an R. A. in Johnson Main and I was head resident. I have a copy of the Hugh Latimer book. I’ll be happy to send it to you if you like. Drop me an email.
