Abstract

SNYMAN, Fanie. Mapping recent developments in Old Testament theology. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.3, pp.1-8. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v75i3.5021.

This article provides the readers with an overview of the history of the study of the Old Testament, highlighting major turning points especially during the 20th and 21st centuries. It is argued that the approaches of Eichrodt, Von Rad, Childs and Brueggemann mark the major innovative developments in Old Testament theology during the 20th and 21st centuries. The article concludes with a number of conclusions based on the overview of developments in the field. The postmodern turn represented in especially the Old Testament theologies of Brueggemann and Gerstenberger is pointed out together with other trends that can be detected from recent developments in the field.
