An Introduction to the Scriptures of Israel: History and Theology

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: An Introduction to the Scriptures of Israel: History and Theology
Publisher: Eerdmans
Author: Tzvi Novick

Description

In this distinctive textbook for Hebrew Bible courses, author Tzvi Novick’s approach is thematic rather than chronological. Sorting the books according to their historical context, theological claims, and literary conventions, Novick examines and elucidates the historical and intellectual development of the Hebrew Bible. 

With attentiveness to both historical-critical and traditional-canonical approaches, An Introduction to the Scriptures of Israel focuses on the dichotomy of the particular and the universal. It shows how this dichotomy impacts each book’s style and content and how it informs the development of Jewish and Christian traditions. This nontraditional textbook is coherent, engaging, and succinct—a perfect resource for any introductory Hebrew Bible course.
