The Problem of Suffering in the Old Testament

The Problem of Suffering in the Old Testament by Arthur S. PeakeThe Problem of Suffering in the Old Testament, written by Arthur S. Peake in 1904,  is now available online in PDF. Click here to download.

According to Wikipedia, Arthur Samuel Peake [1865-1929] “…was the first holder of the Rylands Chair of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis in the University of Manchester, from its establishment as an independent institution in 1904. He was thus the first non-Anglican to become a professor of divinity in an English university.” His successors at this post include C.H. Dodd, F.F. Bruce and Barnabas Lindars. He is best known for his One Volume Commentary on the Bible. Perhaps someone could add a link to this text from the Wikipedia article.

Rick Wadholm Jr. – The Theological Meaning and Significance of Yom in Genesis 1

Rick Wadholm has kindly allowed me to post a PDF of his Master’s Thesis “The Theological Meaning and Significance of Yom in Genesis 1″. Wadholm argues that when we come to interpreting “Yom” we seldom get any further than arguing whether the “days” are literal or figurative. While this [in my opinion] is not unimportant, the text has far more to teach us than just chronology. Wadholm compares the Genesis account with other accounts of creation from the ANE and concludes that Genesis is unlike any of them.
