This landmark work in biblical theology and in the career of a major biblical scholar finds in the theme of the presence and reality of God - rather then covenant - the basis for building an ecumenical theology that fully includes both Old and New Testaments. From the epiphanies of the Patriarchs to the divine presence reflected in Jesus, Terrien points out the distinctive roles of Judaism and Christianity, then distills the unifying interplay of a vision of the ultimate and a passion for the service of humanity which is the core of all Scripture. The Elusive Presence introduces a groundbreaking theology, mindful of the historical complexity within each Testament as well as between the Old and New, yet affirming the reality of faith and making possible a creative response respectful of all traditions.
