Reading Hebrew Bible Narratives Book Description :

Reading Hebrew Bible Narratives introduces readers to narrative traditions of the Old Testament and to methods of interpreting them. Part of the Essentials of Biblical Studies series, this volume presents readers with an overview of exegesis by mainly focusing on a self-contained narrative tobe read alongside the text. Through sustained interaction with the book of Ruth, readers have opportunities to engage a biblical book from multiple perspectives, while taking note of the wider implications of such perspectives for other biblical narratives. Other select texts from Hebrew Biblenarratives, related by theme or content to matters in Ruth, are also examined, not only to assist in illustrating this method of approach, but also to offer reinforcement of reading skills and connections among different narrative traditions. Considering literary analysis, words and texts incontext, and reception history, this brief introduction gives students an overview of how exegesis illuminates stories in the Bible.

Reading Between Texts Book Description :

Intertextuality (the reading of one text in terms of another) is a diverse practice. It is a central and prevalent subject in poststructuralist literary theory. Reading between Texts is the first book to address intertextuality as it relates specifically to interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. The contributors bring together lucid theoretical discussion and sophisticated interpretations from a variety of backgrounds, offering biblical scholars and students a helpful and thorough introduction to the issues and possibilities of intertextuality. The Literary Currents in Biblical Interpretation series explores current trends within the discipline of biblical interpretation by dealing with the literary qualities of the Bible: the play of its language, the coherence of its final form, and the relationships between text and readers. Biblical interpreters are being challenged to take responsibility for the theological, social, and ethical implications of their readings. This series encourages original readings that breach the confines of traditional biblical criticism.

The Hebrew Bible As Literature Book Description :

The Hebrew Bible, or Christian Old Testament, contains some of the finest literature that we have. This biblical literature has a place not only in the synagogue or the church but also among the classics of world literature. The stories of Jacob and David, for instance, present the earliest surviving examples of literary characters whose development the reader follows over the length of a lifetime. Elsewhere, as in the books of Esther or Ruth, readers find a snapshot of a particular, fraught moment that will define the character. The Hebrew Bible also provides quite a few high points of lyric poetry, from the praise and lament of the Psalms to the double entendres in the love of poetry of the Song of Songs. In short, the Bible can be celebrated not only as religious literature but, quite simply, as literature. This book offers a thorough and lively introduction to the Bible's two primary literary modes, narrative and poetry, foregrounding the nuances of plot, character, metaphor, structure and design, and intertextual allusions. Tod Linafelt thus gives readers the tools to fully experience and appreciate the Old Testament's literary achievement. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Reading the Hebrew Bible Book Description :

The Hebrew Bible, sacred scripture both to Judaism and to Christianity, has been a major religious influence for atleast 2000 years. Christianity, the daughter religion, asserted its independence from Judaism, the parent religion, by asserting the superiority of its won interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. As a result, Christians tend to be unfamiliar with Jewish biblical commentary. In the case of Islam, a younger daughter religion, Jewish commentary and the Bible itself have been ignored. Today, however, the situation is beginning to change, and many non-Jews are beginning to appreciate the potential of Jewish commentary for enhancing their understanding of the Bible. For such readers, and for Jews as well, Reading the Hebrew Bible is the perfect introduction to Jewish biblical commentary and commentators down through the ages. A through survey of the history of Jewish involvement with the Book of Books, it focuses in particular on the two basic approaches that have characterized Jewish biblical commentary almost from the beginning: a concern with the plain sense of the text, and an awareness of the Bible as a revealed work.

Interested Parties Book Description :

One of the more creative Old Testament scholars of our time, David Clines offers an enjoyable and provocative set of studies on ideology. The title of a keynote essay, 'Why is There a Song of Songs, and What Does It Do to You If You Read It?', hints at the twin focus of the volume: the ideology of the writers, who bring the biblical texts into being, and the ideologies of the readers, who are shaped by the text at the same moment as they are shaping it in their own image. Among the essays are 'The Ten Commandments, Reading from Right to Left'; 'Metacommentating Amos'; 'David the Man: The Construction of Masculinity in the Hebrew Bible'; and 'Psalm 2 and the MLF (Moabite Liberation Front)'.

How to Read the Bible Book Description :

Master Bible scholar and teacher Marc Brettler argues that today's contemporary readers can only understand the ancient Hebrew Scripture by knowing more about the culture that produced it. And so Brettler unpacks the literary conventions, ideological assumptions, and historical conditions that inform the biblical text and demonstrates how modern critical scholarship and archaeological discoveries shed light on this fascinating and complex literature. Brettler surveys representative biblical texts from different genres to illustrate how modern scholars have taught us to "read" these texts. Using the "historical-critical method" long popular in academia, he guides us in reading the Bible as it was read in the biblical period, independent of later religious norms and interpretive traditions. Understanding the Bible this way lets us appreciate it as an interesting text that speaks in multiple voices on profound issues. This book is the first "Jewishly sensitive" introduction to the historical-critical method. Unlike other introductory texts, the Bible that this book speaks about is the Jewish one -- with the three-part TaNaKH arrangement, the sequence of books found in modern printed Hebrew editions, and the chapter and verse enumerations used in most modern Jewish versions of the Bible. In an afterword, the author discusses how the historical-critical method can help contemporary Jews relate to the Bible as a religious text in a more meaningful way.
