Reviews - What do our customers think?
Information par excellance  Jan 18, 2007
Although this work was certainly not written for beginners in the area of textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible, it is, nontheless the very best reference work on the subject available in English, and should be an essential reference book on the student's bookshelf.
Michael Jacobs
 
Exactly what I needed  Dec 14, 2005
As I started diving in translation and text criticism, I needed a pratical introduction to the matter. In such cases you need the BEST. You have to go to the great names. Prof Tov's book brought me where I needed to come! As I learned the jargon, I got acquainted with the state of the art. If not exactly the last word (new discoveries and studies are published every day), I now walk on solid ground on the matter, gained a critical view and can surf on this before unknown sea. I am no longer an absolute outsider. I know the words of the trade! Well used money.
 
Brilliant!!  Mar 1, 2005
A very thorough and scholarly work which is written in a lucid way for the layman and the boffin alike. It certainly has no theological axe to grind. However, I was dissappointed that the major differences between LXX and Masoretic were not pointed out eg. psalm 40:7, may be if a christian was to see its use in Heb 10:v? it might be a bit controversial? May be this would explain why Hebrews nearly did not make it into the canon of the NT? But this is not the purpose of the book! The plates are an excellent idea as you get to see the 'evidence' so to speak. A glossary of terms would be a good idea so that one can easily decipher what 'orthography' and 'morphology' are for example, without having to search for clues. On the whole a most pleasant book which certainly delivers the goods.
 
Excellent Handbook  Apr 27, 2004
This book outlines the principles of textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible. Especially helpful are discussions of how this field is different than that of Greek New Testament textual criticism.

Note that this book is more of a manual for how to do textual criticism than it is a summary of the current state of knowledge in the field (although it does have a fair amount of that too).

 
Scarcely updated, but still superb  Sep 11, 2001
The reviews of the first edition were glowing, and rightly so because this is a superb book. Tov is a world authority in his subject, and has the ability to explain his complex technical subject with great lucidity. This second edition is, however, almost a page for page reprint of the first edition and has only a few small revisions. This is disappointing, and we look forward to a more thoroughly revised third edition in the next few years. Anyone with a first edition need not bother with this one. However, everyone else with more than a beginner's interest in the subject should buy this book now.
