Product Description

Reading the Old Testament is intended for students who have already learned some of the techniques of biblical study and who wish to explore the wider implications and aims of the various critical methods currently in use. It provides an independent assessment and comparison of the latest development against the old, with chapters on form criticism, redaction criticism, canonical creticism, structuralism, reader-response criticism, and postmodern approaches.
