Dr. Meredith G. Kline (1922-2007)

Last Friday, Old Testament scholar Meredith Kline entered his well-deserved rest. Dr. Kline served as pastor, teacher and author; and by his work furthered the church's understanding of the Old Testament. His contributions include discerning the Ancient Near Eastern covenant forms in the Old Testament, refining our understanding of God's covenant and analyzing the structure of the early chapters of Genesis. While his writing is challenging, and some of his formulations are controversial, every reader will benefit for considering his insights. A collection of his works can be accessed here.
