God in the Details: A Biblical Survey of the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures presents the story of the Bible in a systematic, yet straightforward manner. Readers are introduced to a broad investigation of the Hebrew and Greek scriptures (including writings from the intertestamental period), providing the highlights of each book in the Bible as well as historical and cultural details to mesh out the stories and to provide depth of understanding. Big, small, and cross-testamental themes are investigated as are various scriptural approaches, explanations, and interpretations in tradition and postmodernity. Each chapter also includes an in-depth essay on a passage or aspect of biblical literature by assorted leaders in the academy and the Christian church. These vignettes offer readers a deeper understanding of details perhaps not covered in a survey and will show the variety of scholarly, learned opinions at play in academia and the church, presently. Finally, the authors’ (Tsohantaridis and Knox) respective academic backgrounds lend themselves to a personal-but-pragmatic method that incorporates the biblical and the theological with the historical and the sociological. Thus, this survey traces and connects the variety of genres, styles, histories, and types of literature in the Bible, but through the lens of Redemption.
