9780195378405: The Old Testament: A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures

Lucidly written by leading biblical scholar Michael D. Coogan, this balanced, engaging, and up-to-date introduction to the Hebrew scriptures distills the best of current scholarship. Employing the narrative chronology of the Bible itself and the history of the ancient Near East as a framework, Coogan covers all the books of the Hebrew Bible, along with the deuterocanonical books included in the Bible used by many Christians. He treats every book of the canon with careful attention to its historical context, its particular genre, and its distinctive features. Dealing in detail with ancient Near Eastern sources and archaeological data, Coogan works from a primarily historical and critical methodology but also introduces students to literary analysis and other interpretive strategies, especially current ones.

The Old Testament: A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures is enhanced by a glossary, timelines, photos, illustrations, maps, and a four-color insert on Jerusalem in biblical times. Strategically placed boxes address issues that often puzzle readers of the Bible, provide models of interpretation of particular texts, and discuss their significance for Judaism and Christianity. Each chapter includes a preview and summary, key terms, questions for review and discussion, and suggestions for further reading.

Review:


"Coogan's The Old Testament: A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures stands out from the crowd and, in my opinion, is the current best choice for a critical overview of the text coupled with a solid introduction to the Bible's Near Eastern background. Everyone who teaches the Old Testament is now indebted to Michael Coogan."--Ron Tappy, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary


"OUP clearly has a winner on its hands with Michael Coogan's The Old Testament: A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures. It is excellent. . . . There is a liveliness to the prose that one doesn't often find in textbooks."--Carol A. Newsom, Charles Howard Candler Professor of Old Testament, Candler School of Theology, Emory University


"This is an excellent introduction, which fills a significant need in the field. It is judicious, well conceived and organized, up-to-date, and very clearly written."--Marc Zvi Brettler, Dora Golding Professor of Biblical Studies and Chair of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, Brandeis University


"At last, a well-written, non-technical, up-to-date introduction to the Hebrew Bible that can serve as a textbook for undergraduates and as an entreé into biblical studies for graduate students and adults."--Adele Berlin, Robert H. Smith Professor of the Hebrew Bible, University of Maryland


"This refreshing, systematic study of Old Testament traditions creates its own space among the great introductions to the Hebrew Bible. . . . [A] tremendous achievement in biblical scholarship and a very significant contribution to education in biblical literature and religion."--Samuel Murrell, Associate Professor of Religion, University of North Carolina-Wilmington
