NEW Breakout Volumes Coming April 2018!
A leading introduction to the Hebrew Bible, now with breakout volumes
John J. Collins’s Introduction to the Hebrew Bible is one of the most popular introductory textbooks in colleges and seminary classrooms. Collins presents the current state of historical, archaeological, and literary understandings of the biblical text and engages the student in questions of significance and interpretation for the contemporary world. In order to enhance classroom use, Collins’s major text has now been divided into four volumes, one for each major part of the Hebrew Bible: Prophecy, The Torah/Pentateuch, The Writings, and The Deuteronomistic History.
Excerpted from the main textbook, each of the breakout volumes contain the full introduction to Collins’s Introduction to the Hebrew Bible, Third Edition, as well as more student-friendly features, including chapter summaries, charts, maps, photographs, and bibliographies for further reading.
