In this meticulously researched study, Konrad Schmid offers a historical clarification of the concept of "theology." He then examines the theologies of the three constituent parts of the Hebrew Bible-the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings- before tracing how these theological concepts developed throughout the history of ancient Israel and early Judaism. Schmid not only explores the theology of the biblical books in isolation, but he also offers unifying principles and links between the distinct units that make up the Hebrew Bible. By focusing on both the theology of the whole Hebrew Bible as well as its individual pieces, A Historical Theology of the Hebrew Bible provides a comprehensive discussion of theological work within the Hebrew Bible. https://www.amazon.com/Historical-Theology-Hebrew-Bible/dp/0802876935/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=9780802876935&qid=1572026105&s=books&sr=1-1
