John Calvin's reading of the Old Testament was a departure from that of many of his contemporaries. He rejected much of the traditional Christian exegesis of the Old Testament that attempted to to explain it in terms of the New Testament revelation of Christ. He also rejected much of the traditional Jewish exegesis of the Old Testament that favored a more so-called historical approach to the writings. Instead he offered a middle way to interpret the Old Testament scripture with respect to both traditions. David Puckett examines this often-neglected area of study of John Calvin's exegetical reasoning in this comprehensive and fascinating analysis.

The Columbia Series in Reformed Theology represents a joint commitment by Columbia Theological Seminary and Westminster John Knox Press to provide theological resources from the Reformed tradition for the church today. This series examines theological and ethical issues that confront church and society in our own particular time and place.

David L. Puckett is Professor of Church History and Associate Vice President for Doctoral Studies at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Puckett previously taught at Dallas Theological Seminary and Criswell College.
