From Eden to Golgotha: Essays in Biblical Theology's description is super awkward.  It looks like something someone jotted down as a place holder with the intention of coming back to write something permanent. 

"These essays have been brought together with a number or purpose in mind, within the context or a basic concern to explore something or the depth and vitality or the Jewish scriptures and or the Jewish and Christian religious traditions that have grown out or them."

"These essays have been brought together with a number or purpose in mind, within the context or a basic concern to explore something or the depth and vitality or the Jewish scriptures and or the Jewish and Christian religious traditions that have grown out or them."

It seems that this is nearly the same blurb as used on Amazon (claiming to be from the introduction) - with the most relevant difference, that either it was sloppy typing or an unfortunate replace operation that made Logos have "or" wherever the original has "of" and it's "purposes" in the plural.

“These essays have been brought together with a number of purposes in mind, within the context of a basic concern to explore something of the depth and vitality of the Jewish scriptures and of the Jewish and Christian religious traditions that have grown out of them.” is still somewhat vague, but doesn't look like a placeholder.

That is indeed better.  I took the first line and threw it into Google without quotes (should have used quotes) and didn't come up with anything in the first few search results, so I assumed it was original to this listing.  That makes more sense now.

I've cleaned this one up.  There is a limited amount of information available on this title.  I'll keep trying to see if I can find anything further.
