📝People of the Covenant Book Synopsis : Fully revised and updated using contemporary literary approaches and the most recent historical scholarship, this introduction to the Hebrew Bible provides a thorough and coherent approach to the basic human issues of the Scriptures. It emphasizes the meanings that the Hebrews gave to persons and events in their attempts to manage life's struggles, and provides textual aids that help students understand these ideas and apply them to contemporary issues. After an initial presentation on the nature of biblical literature, the Book of Genesis is treated as a theological prelude to Israel's story. Subsequent chapters are organized around epochs in Hebrew life. Throughout the book the authors stress the human issues at stake in Israel's memory and the preservation of its history, and how circumstances and thought influenced the Hebrew perceptions and understanding of God. Accessible and stimulating to students of the Hebrew Bible with a wide range of academic and religious backgrounds, People of the Covenant is grounded in the best scholarly methodologies, respect for the rich literary values of the Hebrew Bible, and concern for its enduring religious relevance.

📒Introduction To Hebrew Bible ✍ James E. Bowley
📝Introduction to Hebrew Bible Book Synopsis : "Written for undergraduates and to satisfy and encourage curiosity, this work leads the readers on an engaging, non-sectarian tour of the Hebrew Bible. James E. Bowley taught many years of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament survey and never found a book that was accessible to students and still had academically challenging content, though he tried many. As a result, over a 2-3 year period, he developed his own "library approach" and began to write it and use it with his own students with great success in the classroom."--Publisher's website.

📒A Brief Introduction To The Old Testament ✍ Michael D. Coogan
📝A Brief Introduction to the Old Testament Book Synopsis : "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"--

📒The Hebrew Bible As Literature ✍ Tod Linafelt
📝The Hebrew Bible As Literature Book Synopsis : The Hebrew Bible, or Christian Old Testament, contains some of the finest literature that we have. This biblical literature has a place not only in the synagogue or the church but also among the classics of world literature. The stories of Jacob and David, for instance, present the earliest surviving examples of literary characters whose development the reader follows over the length of a lifetime. Elsewhere, as in the books of Esther or Ruth, readers find a snapshot of a particular, fraught moment that will define the character. The Hebrew Bible also provides quite a few high points of lyric poetry, from the praise and lament of the Psalms to the double entendres in the love of poetry of the Song of Songs. In short, the Bible can be celebrated not only as religious literature but, quite simply, as literature. This book offers a thorough and lively introduction to the Bible's two primary literary modes, narrative and poetry, foregrounding the nuances of plot, character, metaphor, structure and design, and intertextual allusions. Tod Linafelt thus gives readers the tools to fully experience and appreciate the Old Testament's literary achievement. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

📒The Hebrew Bible For Beginners ✍ Joel N. Lohr
📝The Hebrew Bible for Beginners Book Synopsis : Jews call the Hebrew Scriptures the “Tanakh” and Christians call them the “Old Testament.” It doesn't take long to see that Jews and Christians view the same set of books differently and interpret these scriptures in unique and at times conflicting ways. The Hebrew Bible for Beginners introduces students to the tremendous influence the Hebrew Bible has had on western society for over two millennia and explores the complexities of reading ancient religious literature today. The book also addresses how certain modern critical approaches may initially be alarming, indeed even shocking, to those who have not been exposed to them, but it tackles the conversation in a respectful fashion. Avoiding jargon and convoluted prose, this highly accessible volume provides textboxes, charts, a timeline, a glossary, and regularly includes artistic renderings of biblical scenes to keep lay and beginning readers engaged.
