Comments

Using contemporary literary approaches and the most recent historical scholarship, this introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures provides a thorough and coherent approach to the basic human issues of the Scriptures. It emphasizes the meanings that the Hebrews gave to persons and events in their attempts to manage life's struggles, and provides textual aids that help students understand these ideas and apply them to contemporary issues. Accessible and stimulating to students with a wide range of academic and religious backgrounds, People of the Covenant is grounded in the best scholarly methodologies, respect for the rich literary values of the Old Testament, and concern for its enduring religious relevance.
