Editorial Reviews

“A very well-balanced introduction to the main lines of academic readings of the Hebrew Bible … The result is exactly what editor Perdue claims: ‘a coherent, up-to-date introduction to the major areas of Old Testament biblical scholarship’. Recommended for all libraries; all readership levels and groups.”


“The very informative and comprehensive contributions are all written by internationally leading scholars. The companion is a welcome and helpful tool for modern biblical study and deserves attention from a wide range of readers.”

Dr Konrad Schmid, University of Heidelberg

" The volume will undoubtedly be a useful reference work, ... enabling undergraduate students in particular to orientate themselves when embarking on OT studies."

Iwan Rhys Jones, The Evangelical Theological College of Wales Bryntirion

"Most of us who teach Old Testament/Hebrew Bible continue to search for the perfect textbook. Might the Blackwell Companion signal an end to the quest,... The Blackwell Companion is a monumental work, produced from the labor of many at the apex of their scholarly careers."

Esther E. Menn, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
