Traditional study of the Old Testament has involved careful analysis of individual books in order to discover their component sources. Outlining some alternatives to this method--yet retaining the values of the conventional technique--this study considers the importance of sociology and anthropology, of liberations and feminist perspectives, and of literary criticism, providing a unique guide for those approaching the Old Testament for the first time, and for those who are disenchanted with staid forms of biblical analysis.

R. J. Coggins, Senior Lecturer in Old Testament Studies, King's College, London.Review:
`This is an excellent book for those about to embark upon Reader training and a very valuable summary of the various approaches to Old Testament studies offered to us in recent years.' The Reader `There are clear, concise presentations of current scholarly approaches to the major areas of Old Testament study, and well-balanced evaluations of their usefulness.' The Month 'Richard Coggins has given us a superb introduction to the Old Testament, which reveals the orderliness of his own mind and inspires confidence ... a most comprehensive view of current approaches and debates ... It is thoroughly up to date' The Expository Times 'the clearest introduction that I have yet read ... This book is meant for the student. Its clarity and good judgement will be of great help to all readers. This is a small book but its readers will find it pure gold.' Canon Joseph Robinson, Master of the Temple, Church Times 'a gladly recommended read for literates ... It would also be a useful preliminary for those about to start theological or religious studies.' Peter Akehurst, Christian Weekly Newspapers Series
