Review: Typology in Scripture: A Study of Hermeneutical Typos Structures

Typology in Scripture: A Study of Hermeneutical Typos Structures
Typology in Scripture: A Study of Hermeneutical Typos Structures by Richard M. Davidson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Excellent monograph attempting to discern the structure of typology from Scripture. Davidson’s dissertation starts with a couple chapters of scholarly slog, but kicks into high gear when the exegesis starts, and a consistent picture of the nature of typology emerges. Very good treatment of the issues, but more for the stout of heart and lover of typewriter fonts than the casual reader.

I don’t think I’ll ever forget that “the term tupos in its signification of “hollow mold” was seen to be amazingly well-suited to encompass the linear Nachbild-Vorbild dynamics involved in the nature of OT tupoi (419 et al), partially because of Davidson’s excitementbild, and (consequently) his choicebild to copy and pastebild that sentence another fifteen times throughout the book.

Needling aside, a very helpful book in clarifying what typology is.
