Summary

Fully revised and updated, using contemporary literary approaches and the most recent historical scholarship, this introduction to the Hebrew Bible 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 stresses the human issues at stake in Israel's memory and the preservation of its history. Accessible and stimulating to readers with a wide range of religious backgrounds, People of the Covenant is grounded in the best scholarly methodologies, respect for the rich literary values of the Hebrew bible, and concern for its enduring religious relevance.

"A fine, up-to-date introduction, with excellent maps and illustrations, plus theological and literary discernment and sensitivity."

--Walter Harrelson, Vanderbilt University (on the previous edition).
