This pedagogically astute introduction to the Hebrew Bible is designed specifically for undergraduates. It begins with the most basic questions: from where and when did the Hebrew Bible originate, how was it written, and how did people read it? In focusing on the fundamental question of the canon--Who are we?--it first gives much attention to the issue of identity. Then it explores how the ancient Israelites organized themselves in terms of power and state, and finally, delineates the larger questions of God and ideology within the canon. The result is a flow of topics that is in line with other studies of ancient literature and culture, without ignoring the religious function of the Hebrew Bible. Through art, photography, literature, and popular culture, this text vibrantly presents the concepts of the Hebrew Bible, and offers a companion Web site with tests and other pedagogical aids for teachers.
Get2011Twin Cities, MinnesotaAge: 45-54Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Very modern liberal look back at the Hebrew BibleDecember 31, 2013Get2011Twin Cities, MinnesotaAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1A very modern day liberal look back at the origins, history and translation of the Hebrew bible. authors are secular and within the first 100 pages you can see they are treating the Hebrew bible, the foundation for both Judaism and Christianity as just one more god myth,
The book does have some good information, but if you where looking to gain a deeper understanding of the Hebrew bible from a Jewish or Christian prospective this is not the book for you. It would be a great book for atheists to use to undermine the truth of Gods word.
SammieNMAge: Over 65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Excellent cultural information.April 17, 2013SammieNMAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I bought this book for the cultural and historical information and am pleased with the archeology etc.. It was written by people who do not believe the Bible is inspired; they believe what it says only if archeological finds support it The writer of Genesis "imagined" that people lived to be so old etc.. I like the history BUT it is hard to read something so anti God and anit Bible.
LaviegAjax, Ontario, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Good information but subjective toneMarch 29, 2013LaviegAjax, Ontario, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 2There is a lot of great information in this book but it fails to capture the true spiritual essence of the scriptures. Didn't appreciate the comment about how the biblical law leaves open the possibility of consensual sexual relationships between men belonging to two different households. Leviticus 18:22 says do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. This seems pretty straight forward to me and appears to address the sexual relationships between males.
MattCanadaAge: 18-24Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Very liberal view pointsMarch 22, 2013MattCanadaAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Very bias and liberal viewpoints; read it cover to cover for an introduction to the Hebrew Bible course at seminary and gave it away the following fall to a new student as I had no desire to refer to it again. I disliked the format as it tries to be thematic rather than by the Biblical books and I found it hard to use for research purposes. I also found the content to be very bias and presenting theories as fact. If someone is to use this book I would suggest they get another Introduction to the Old Testament book from Zondervan or Concordia Publishing House in order to be exposed to alternative viewpoints and judge for themselves what is the stronger argument. Personally I have no desire to have a copy of this book or use it again.
