"This is a shorter version of Coogan's The Old Testament, for instructors who prefer a more concise textbook. Acclaimed for its balance, readability, and scholarship, it introduces students to the biblical books in their historical contexts. Coogan draws on his extensive knowledge and experience to incorporate into the text ancient Near Eastern sources and archaeological data that enhance the understanding of the Bible. The primary methodology is thus historical-critical, but Coogan also introduces students to other interpretive strategies, including current ones. The many charts, photographs, line drawings, and maps are fully integrated into the text, as is the color inset that deals with Jerusalem in biblical times. Strategically placed informational boxes deal in detail with issues that often puzzle readers of the Bible, provide models of interpretation of particular texts, and discuss their significance for Judaism and Christianity. Important names and terms are highlighted in the text, and are defined in the glossary in the back"--

Eminent biblical scholar Michael D. Coogan offers here a wide-ranging and stimulating exploration of the Old Testament, illuminating its importance as history, literature, and sacred text. Coogan explains the differences between the Bible of Jewish tradition (the "Hebrew Bible") and the Old Testament of Christianity, and also examines the different contents of the Bibles used by Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Christians, and Protestants. He looks at the rise of modern biblical scholarship as well as the recovery of ancient Near Eastern literatures and their significance for biblical interpretation. Coogan explores the use of invented dialogue and historical fiction in the Old Testament, the presence of mythic elements in apparently historical accounts, and the relationship of ancient Israelite myths to those of their neighbors. The book considers the Old Testament's idea of divine justice, especially in Ecclesiastes and Job, and looks at notions of the afterlife in the ancient Near East and in ancient Israel. Coogan highlights the significance of the history and literature of the Old Testament and describes how non-biblical evidence, such as archaeological data and texts, has placed the Old Testament in a larger and more illuminating context. The book also discusses law and ritual in the Bible as well as the biblical understandings of prophecy. Here then is a marvelous overview of one of the great pillars of Western religion and culture, a book whose significance has endured for thousands of years and which remains vitally important today for Jews, Christians, and Muslims worldwide. About the Series: Oxford's Very Short Introductions offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects--from Islam to Sociology, Politics to Classics, and Literary Theory to History. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume provides trenchant and provocative--yet always balanced and complete--discussions of the central issues in a given topic. Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how it has developed and influenced society. Whatever the area of study, whatever the topic that fascinates the reader, the series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable.

Intended as guide and textbook for those coming new to Old Testament study, and to provide clear directions for those puzzled by the complexity of the subject, this book sets out simply and clearly the basic issues, problems and methods of approach in current Old Testament scholarship. Dr Hayes begins by describing the development of the Hebrew Bible and how it came to exist in different canonical forms. After an account of the nature of textual criticism, he then gives a brief history of the development of Old Testament study and the problems faced by its pioneers. A full chapter is devoted to the use of form criticism in connection with the Old Testament literature, and then detailed attention is paid to each of its main categories: the Pentateuch, the historical books, Israelite prophecy, the Psalms, Israelite wisdom literature, and Jewish apocalyptic. Bibliographies are provided for each chapter, giving books for further study, and tables and summaries consolidate explanations which are notable for their lucidity. All technical terms are explained on their first appearance, and justice is done to views differing from those of the author.

Old Testament interpretation developed as theologians and scholars proposed critical theories over time. These figures contributed to a large, developing complex of ideas and trends that serves as the foundation of contemporary discussions on interpretation. Mark Gignilliat brings these figures and their theories together in Critically Engaged: A Brief History of Old Testament Criticism in the Modern Era. His discussion is driven by influential thinkers such as Baruch Spinoza and the critical tradition, Johann Semler and historical criticism, Hermann Gunkel and romanticism, Gerhard von Rad and the tradition-historical approach, Brevard Childs and the canonical approach, and more. This concise overview is ideal for classroom use as it provides a working knowledge of the major critical interpreters of the Old Testament, their approach to the subject matter, and the philosophical background of their approaches. Further reading lists direct readers to additional resources on specific theologians and theories. This book will serve as a companion to the forthcoming textbook Believing Criticism by Richard Schultz.

This relatively brief, nontechnical introduction to the Old Testament captures the dramatic development of the ancient Israelite and early Jewish religious traditions, emphasizing the importance of narrative and memory. By focusing on the Moses-Sinai and David-Zion stories and on three major crises in the history of Jerusalem—the capture of the city by David in the 10th century BCE, its destruction by Babylon in 587 BCE, and its destruction by Rome in 70 CE—Humphreys helps students appreciate the complex interplay between the religious traditions and the political, social, economic, military, and cultural factors that influenced these traditions.
