Product Description

Ernst Wurthwein's classic introduction to the textual criti cism of the Hebrew Bible is now thoroughly updated in the light of new critical editions of the texts and recent contributions and findings in the various areas of the history of the text - especially the Masoretic text, the Septuagint, and the Peshitta, with attention given to the Dead Sea Scrolls. New for this edition are a chapter by Wurthwein that speaks to the theological significance of textual criticism and the history of the text, and an appendix by Harold P. Scanlin of the United Bible Societies that discusses resources for textual research. Also included are an expanded and updated bibliography and forty-nine plates of texts and inscriptions. The "List of Sigla," which shows in parallel columns the symbols used in the Biblia Hebaica Stuttgartensia and the Biblia Hebraica, assures the usefulness of this book as an introduction to both editions.
