Product Description

In An Introduction to the Apocrypha, Bruce M. Metzger begins by clarifying the term "Apocrypha," and proceeds to discuss the development of the Hebrew canon to the exclusion of the Apocryphal books. He then offers a scholarly analysis of the individual books of the Apocrypha, and probes the significance of New Testament parallels and allusions to the Apopcrypha. Metzger surveys the status accorded the Apocryphal books by the early church fathers, the theologians of the Eastern churches, the leaders of the Reformation and subsequent Protestant theologians, and the Roman Catholic Church. He concludes with a discussion of the pervasive influence of the Apocrypha on the arts. Bibliography and index.

"Professor Metzger's Introduction to the Apocrypha is a classic. The style of the author makes the book not only highly informative but also eminently readable. Students of the Bible will find in this book a truly enjoyable introduction to an important body of religious literature which had an
amazing impact upon culture."--Gunther Wagner, University of New Mexico


"For several decades this has been a classic text for the study of Jewish literature between the Old and New Testament periods. It still stands as a classic and vital text for the study of this literature."--Donald D. Williford, Hardin Simmons University


"An excellent piece of work...by a sound Biblical and historical scholar."--Luther A. Weigle


"An excellent summary of the literature and a good guide to the passages demanding closer scrutiny. [It] also reveals the pervasive influence of the Apocrypha in art, religion, and literature."--James B. Shelton, Oral Roberts University
