The present for Australian biblical scholar and missiologist, Dr John Olley, offers a fine collection of essays on the twin focus of Bible and mission. They offer a good combination of biblical and theological scholarship and of thoughtful, stimulating application to various issues in missiology. Many of the articles contain fresh perspectives and cover ground not already explored. Of particular interest are the articles which focus on the Old Testament and its relevance to mission. They reflect Olley's career of teaching Old Testament exegesis, Hebrew and missiology. Nine of the fifteen essays were written by Australian colleagues and friends of Olley.
