A concise introduction to Typology, in the successful 'An Introduction to' format.
Steve Moyise is Visiting Professor at Newman University, UK and author of The Old Testament in the Book of Revelation (Sheffield, 1995) and The Old Testament in the New (Continuum, 2001). He is the series editor of The T&T Clark Approaches to Biblical Studies.
With his command of both theory and texts, as well as his central
role in the relevant scholarly debates, Steve Moyise is probably
the leading authority in 'the Old Testament in the New'. Happily,
Moyise has an additional gift for writing introductory books. This
revised version is particularly timely as it brings us up-to-date
with the rapid developments in this ever-growing and important
field in New Testament studies. * James Crossley, University of
Sheffield, UK *
It would be difficult to imagine a more sure or authoritative guide to the Old Testament in the New than Steve Moyise. Long a leader in the field and known for judicious, balanced and well-informed scholarship, Moyise expertly inducts the reader into the fascinating task of understanding how the New Testament authors made use of Jewish Scripture in their writings. This expanded and thoroughly revised edition updates what was already a very good book. With its clear style, comprehensive treatment and selective bibliographies, this will be a first stop for those wishing to enter this fascinating field. * David Lincicum, University of Oxford, UK *
In this revised and expanded edition, Moyise guides students and scholars alike through the complex and thorny issue of the use of the Old Testament by the New Testament writers. Moyise's comprehensive scope, honest assessment of exegetical conundrums, and engagement with the ancient Jewish matrix of the New Testament insure the continued value and importance of this volume for many more years to come. * Peter Enns, Abram S. Clemens Professor of biblical studies, Eastern University, USA *
Moyise's great skill lies in his remarkable ability to make complex subject matter accessible to a wide audience through the clarity of his writing and the perspicacity of his summaries. * Susan Docherty, Newman University, UK *
