The hermeneutical foundations for this enterprise have been laid by others in past decades, especially by Brevard Childs in his groundbreaking work. But A Severe Mercy also reflects recent approaches to integrating biblical understanding with other methodologies in addition to Childs's. Thus, it enters the imaginative space of the ancient canon of the Old Testament in order to highlight the "word views" and "literary shapes" of the "texts taken individually and as a whole collection." For the literary shape of the individual texts, it places the "word views" of the dominant expressions and images, as well as various passages, in the larger context of the biblical books in which they are found. For the literary shape of the texts as a collection, it identifies key subthemes and traces their development through the Old Testament canon. The breadth of Boda's study is both challenging and courageous, resulting in the first comprehensive examination of the topic in the 21st century.

    Boda’s book is dense and requires endurance, though this is due to the breadth and depth covered in Boda’s masterful survey of the Hebrew Bible (divided into three sections: Torah (Law/Instruction), Prophets, and Writings. His writing is clear and accessible, and he kindly gives concise chapter summaries (and book summaries and canonical summaries).

His writing is clear and accessible, and he kindly gives concise chapter summaries (and book summaries and canonical summaries). His canonical-thematic approach to reading the Bible respects the literary unity of the Bible and provides the hermeneutic structure to mine Scripture for what it has to say concerning a particular theme. Boda wisely chooses the theme of sin and its remedy (i.e. God’s treatment of sin). Sin and God’s remedy for it is a robust topic worthy of considerable length of study and meditation, and Boda neither skimps out on depth in this survey of the Hebrew Bible nor loses sight of the Old Testament as a panoramic whole. His research is solid, but he leaves his insightful scholarly interaction in the footnotes, thus making his book readable and instructive for scholars and laymen alike. One quick note: he does not say much on Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes) or Song of Songs or Esther, though this is probably because it is less directly relevant with sin and its remedy. His focus on sin, repentance, and divine punishment is sure to be poignant and immediately relevant to all who desire to worship the one true God.
