"This book fills me enthusiasm. Using individual texts as case studies, Steve Moyise carefully explores how embedded Jewish scripture texts in the New Testament have been variously interpreted in modern scholarship. His detailed analysis reveals how presupposed theological and related literary standpoints have dramatically shaped the way in which one answers the question, 'what does the embedded scripture text evoke?' His novel and penetrating engagement with crucial issues pertaining to both Old and New Testament contexts, the unity of the Bible, and the locus of meaning, to name a few, brings much-needed clarity to a field of study that is experiencing a resurgence. Dissatisfied with traditional single-dimensional approaches which have resulted in an impasse, Moyise calls for a multi-faceted approach that incorporates the positive insights from pervious options. This timely and richly informed study is important for serious students of the New Testament and early Christianity, and a 'must' for all who study the relationship between the Testaments." - Thomas R. Hatina, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Trinity Western University, British Columbia, Canada--Sanford Lakoff
"This valuable study will bring much clarity to the discussion of how the OT is called into play in the NT." Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, June 2009--Sanford Lakoff "Journal for The Study of the Old Testament "
"Moyise effectively shows how adopting different methodological or ideological starting points has led scholars to develop radically different understandings of a number of texts where New Testament authors cite or refer to the Jewish Scriptures. All scholars who study early Christian uses of Scripture will benefit from his analysis." - Christopher D. Stanley, St. Bonaventure University, New York, USA--Sanford Lakoff
'In this volume Moyise examines some of the ways that the NT 'evokes' the OT and the hermeneutical questions about authorial intent, textual meaning, original context, and appropriation that follow on from this. Overall, Moyise is very good in highlighting the complexity of biblical Intertextuality and the theological and hermeneutical issues that are raised. Although one might have liked him to spend more time giving answers rather than simply stating the problem, this book serves as a good introduction to the NT use of the OT.' - Michael F. Bird, JSNT Booklist, vol. 31.5, 2009. --Sanford Lakoff
