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. AMAZON
Tzvi Novick holds the Abrams Chair of Jewish Thought and Culture in the department of theology at the University of Notre Dame.
