Chapter Summary

Two Dutch authors, Marjo Korpel and Johannes C. de Moor, submitted significant book: The Silent God, head down to him in a difficult field of biblical exegesis and theology. Especially in the churches of the Reformation, the "Word of God" a tremendously important role that God has spoken and continues to speak, is the central Christian of faith. In the Hebrew Bible, there is a whole word field for describing the silence of God. Talk of the silence of God turns religious-theological speech. The conviction of the biblical narrator speaks and acts again God, regardless of whether and how the people involved speak and act. This is illustrated by three figures of the narrative books of Samuel: Hanna, Saul, and David. The theme of the "Silent God", Which Korpel and Moor have tackled so brave and prudent in today's and was a bedrängendes problem already in the biblical period.
