The Incomparable God: Readings in Biblical Theology

Brent A Strawn

My Lord! There is no one like you among the gods!

Attempting to describe the nature of God often points to the exclamation of the psalmist–that God is unlike anyone or anything else. And yet the claim is not simply the overflow of an adoring heart: God’s incomparability is a truth lodged deep within Christian Scripture. In The Incomparable God, Old Testament scholar Brent A. Strawn offers thoughtful insight into this theological mystery.

This volume collects eighteen of Strawn’s most provocative essays on the nature of God, several of which are published for the first time here. The topics Strawn covers include the following:

  • the complex portrayal of God in Genesis

  • God’s mercy in Exodus

  • poetic description of God in the Psalms

  • the Trinity in both testaments

  • pedagogy of the Old Testament

  • integration of personal faith and scholarship

Encompassing close readings of Scripture, biblical-theological argument, and considerations of praxis, The Incomparable God is essential reading for Old Testament scholars and students.
