"John Collins is one of the most sophisticated Hebrew Bible scholars active in the discipline today. The breadth of his scholarly work is considerable, ranging from learned exegetical analyses and historical investigations to thoughtful theological studies. These lucid essays demonstrate especially the value of the integration of the history of Israel's religion and its theological reflection."
