This book commemorates the retirement of Dr. Cornelis Van Dam, professor of Old Testament, from the Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary. It is titled "Living Waters from Ancient Springs: Essays in Honor of Cornelis Van Dam," is edited by Dr. J. Van Vliet, and is published by Pickwick Publications, a division of Wipf and Stock.
Is the Old Testament still relevant for Christians today? Which
fountains of wisdom, which never-failing streams, which wells of
joy-filled salvation are we missing out on, if we neglect the Old
Testament? In this celebratory volume, fifteen scholars collaborate to explain and expound diverse aspects of the Christian life, with a special focus on drawing lines from the Old Testament through the New Testament toward the daily reality of living together as pilgrims in the church of Christ.
For three decades, Dr. Van Dam taught seminary students to draw living water from the wells of salvation. All the contributors to this book have benefited in one way or another from his knowledge and instruction.
