Interpreting Habakkuk as Scripture
An Application of the Canonical Approach of Brevard S. Childs
©2007 Monographs 187 Pages
Series: Studies in Biblical Literature, Volume 9
This book draws together two current issues in Old Testament study: canonical analysis and the minor prophets. G. Michael O’Neal applies the canonical approach of Brevard S. Childs to the book of Habakkuk, resulting not only in an evaluation of Childs’s method, but also providing new insights into the canonical shape and theological message of Habakkuk. The findings of textual, historical, literary, formal, and redactional criticisms inform the study. However, O’Neal goes beyond these findings to ascertain the canonical shape of Habakkuk and to illustrate how this shape informs an understanding of the book’s theological message.
