Description

Professor McCarter here offers an introduction to the art and science of textual criticism for students of the Hebrew Bible. His emphasis is on the work involved in the critical evaluation of a given portion of text. His explanations of critical principles are illustrated with carefully selected examples of the textual phenomena discussed—in Hebrew, with English translations. The book concludes with unique appendices on several kinds of essential but hard-to-find information.
