This book brings together some of the world's most exciting
scholars from across a variety of disciplines to provide a concise
and accessible guide to the Hebrew Bible. It covers every major
genre of book in the Old Testament together with in-depth
discussions of major themes such as human nature, covenant,
creation, ethics, ritual and purity, sacred space, and monotheism.
This authoritative overview sets each book within its historical
and cultural context in the ancient Near East, paying special
attention to its sociological setting. It provides new insights
into the reception of the books and the different ways they have
been studied, from historical-critical enquiry to modern advocacy
approaches such as feminism and liberation theology. It also
includes a guide to biblical translations and textual criticism and
helpful suggestions for further reading. Featuring contributions
from experts with backgrounds in the Jewish and Christian faith
traditions as well as secular scholars in the humanities and social
sciences, The Hebrew Bible is the perfect starting place for anyone
seeking a user-friendly introduction to the Old Testament, and an
invaluable reference book for students and teachers.
