Introduction to the Hebrew Bible: Second Edition

Fortress Press
Free sample

 John J. Collins’ Introduction to the Hebrew Bible is one of the most reliable and
widely adopted critical textbooks at undergraduate and graduate levels alike,
and for good reason. Enriched by decades of classroom teaching, it is aimed
explicitly at motivated students regardless of their previous exposure to the
Bible or faith commitments. Collins proceeds through the canon of the Old
Testament and the Apocrypha, judiciously presenting the current state of
historical, archaeological, and literary understanding of the biblical text,
and engaging the student in questions of significance and interpretation for
the contemporary world. The second edition has been revised where more recent
scholarship indicates it, and is now presented in a refreshing new format.
