In this textbook for Hebrew Bible courses, Tzvi Novick takes a thematic approach rather than a chronological one. Sorting the books according to their historical context, theological claims, and literary conventions, Novick explores the historical and intellectual development of the Hebrew Bible.
With attentiveness to historical-critical and traditional-canonical approaches, An Introduction to the Scriptures of Israel focuses on the dichotomy of the particular and the universal. It shows how this dichotomy impacts each book’s style and content and how it informs Jewish and Christian traditions as they develop. This nontraditional textbook is coherent, engaging, and succinct—a perfect resource for any introductory Hebrew Bible course.

"Novicks innovative introduction to Israels scriptures has grown organically from his teaching experience, and it communicates the excitement of a lively humanities course. . . . A learned but accessible introduction to the Hebrew Bible, to biblical studies, and to the distinct ways Jews and Christians interpret the Bible."
Sara M. Koenig

"Simultaneously broad enough to be useful in a variety of educational settings yet also detailed and specific enough to further scholarly insight. Rather than simply beginning with Genesis and proceeding in canonical order, Tzvi Novick considers how themes of the universal and the particular are presented and held in tension within Israels scriptures. With his lucid, even elegant writing, Novick gives readers of all levels a new way to look at this ancient text."
