Editorial Reviews

"Meanwhile, this is a worthwhile and encouraging introduction:inevitably technical, it is sufficiently helpful in its layout andpresentation for a student to use it on her own, without referenceto a course tutor." (New Directions, 1 March 2011)

"Carr's book is an excellent introduction to what mainstream(non-evangelical) scholars have come to believe about ancientIsrael's literary history." (International Review of BiblicalStudies, 2010)

"I recommend this book to advanced students who already have agood grasp of the text of the Bible in their own mother tonguetranslations; they will be able to apreciate the nuanced meaningsand implications of this book better; they will be challenged tothink through the details that are presented here; on the wholethey will be thankful for their leaning experience." (TheologicalBook Review, 2010)
