The course is an independent study designed to provide the student with an overview of the leading approaches to the theological exegesis and synthesis of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. For that purpose, the student will read Walter Brueggemann's Theology of the Old Testament. The student and the tutor will meet in order to discuss, evaluate and contextualize the material. The student will write a critical book report (c.a. 10 pages) and a research paper (c.a. 15 pages) on an approved topic.
