Introduction to the Scriptures of Israel : History and Theology, Paperback / softback Book

Introduction to the Scriptures of Israel : History and Theology Paperback / softback



In this textbook for Hebrew Bible courses, Tzvi Novick takes a thematic approach rather than a chronological one.

Sorting the books according to their historical context, theological claims, and literary conventions, Novick explores the historical and intellectual development of the Hebrew Bible. With attentiveness to historical-critical and traditional-canonical approaches, An Introduction to the Scriptures of Israel focuses on the dichotomy of the particular and the universal.

It shows how this dichotomy impacts each book's style and content and how it informs Jewish and Christian traditions as they develop.

This nontraditional textbook is coherent, engaging, and succinct-a perfect resource for any introductory Hebrew Bible course.
