Introduction to the Hebrew Bible: Third Edition
Author: John J. Collins
|A Leading Introduction to the Hebrew Bible|
In this third edition, John J. Collins’s Introduction to the Hebrew Bible has been updated with a brand-new index as well as new maps and images, laid out in a refreshed and innovative format. Already one of the most reliable and widely adopted critical textbooks at undergraduate and graduate levels alike, the new and improved features released in the third edition will cement its place as the one of the best-selling textbooks of its kind. 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, archeological, and literary understandings of the biblical text, and engaging the student in questions of significance and interpretation for the contemporary world. The approach is ecumenical, in the sense that it seeks not to impose any particular theological perspective but to provide information and raise questions that should be relevant to any student in any context.
For the first time: A brand-new index
New and engaging format
Fresh maps and images
Also new in 2018: separate “breakout” editions on Prophecy, the Torah/Pentateuch, the Writings, and the Deuteronomistic History. These slim volumes are excerpted from the full textbook and offer instructors and students an introduction-level treatment of specific sections in the Hebrew Bible, allowing for greater flexibility in course focus and design.
