9780190238599: A Brief Introduction to the Old Testament: The Hebrew Bible In Its Context

A Brief Introduction to the Old Testament is, in my view, the best concise introduction to the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible for undergraduates. Coogan is a precise and lucid writer and a top-notch scholar who is both at the forefront of a broad range of biblical scholarship and can distill that knowledge into accessible erudition. ( Martien Halvorson-Taylor, University of Virginia)

This is my favorite textbook for Introduction to the Old Testament. Coogan offers a wealth of comparative material that illuminates the biblical text. ( Karina Hogan, Fordham University)

This is an outstanding textbook. It is clear in its organization, presentation, and prose. ( Robert Stoops, Western Washington University)

Vom Verlag:

Engaging and accessible to students from all backgrounds, A Brief Introduction to the Old Testament: The Hebrew Bible in Its Context, Third Edition, is an updated and concise version of Michael D. Coogan's best-selling The Old Testament: A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures, Third Edition (OUP, 2013). Coogan works primarily from a historical and critical methodology but also introduces students to literary analysis and other interpretive strategies.

Providing a nondenominational and nondoctrinal treatment, this text offers a unique and captivating introduction to the Hebrew scriptures themselves and to how they have been?and can be?interpreted.
