Reading the Old Testament is intended for students who have already learned some of the techniques of biblical study and who wish to explore the wider implications and aims of the various critical methods currently in use. It provides an independent assessment and comparison of the latest development against the old, with chapters on form criticism, redaction criticism, canonical criticism, structuralism, reader-response criticism, and postmodern approaches.
New biblical methods seem to appear each year, and it can be difficult for students to find a comprehensive survey to the wide range of interpretive options. Reading the Old Testament enables introductory students to understand the established methods of biblical study along with the emerging trends of recent years. This book is firmly grounded in the best available scholarship; at the same time, it speaks to students with no previous knowledge of biblical study.
Students will appreciate this book's clarity and precision as it compares traditional methods of exegesis with newer critical innovations in Old Testament study.
