The method of tradition history has broadened our awareness of the
dynamic process by which the Old Testament came into being.
Walter Rast offers a clear presentation of the basic principles and
techniques of this study, comparing it with other approaches such as
textual or source criticism.
The main part of this book is devoted to a detailed study of the
Jacob story in Genesis, and of sections from Second Isaiah. In
these chapters readers can follow step-by-step the tradition history
process while developing their own responses to the biblical
texts. Rast demonstrates that tradition history brings to
light basic religious and historical issues within the Old Testament
which must be faced in our own time.
