Those calling for more of an emphasis on the Old Testament, in all likelihood, won't be satisfied with increased doses of Psalms, Proverbs, or the Messianic prophecies. In a manner similar to the way these same theologians enunciate the lamentation that no Christian candidates are running in a particular election as code that no candidate embraces their particular brand of theocratic extremism, this call is for a renewed emphasis on the Old Testament is actually a longing to see many of the obscure laws and customs intended specifically for ancient Israel to be imposed upon the world of the early mid twenty-first century.
