Abstract

VAN WYK, Wouter C. Pieter M. Venter's contribution to Old Testament Studies - an appreciation. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.3, pp.01-05. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v70i3.2685.

The contribution that Professor Pieter M. Venter has made to the study of the Old Testament during his academic and ecclesiastic career is reviewed. After a brief biographical introduction, the article surveys the development of his research interests, focusing specifically on his contributions to the study of wisdom literature, narratives and narratology, second temple literature, the formation of the canon, and Old Testament Theology. The review concludes with reference to his way of practising critical theology, taking full cognisance of research into the linguistic, historical critical, narratological and ideological aspects of Old Testament texts, but always with a sensitivity for the needs of the church as interpretive community.
