Unique, authoritative, indispensable, Hermeneia has in a generation produced many of the most influential and informative commentaries on the Bible in the English language. Each testament collection includes all previously published Hermeneia volumes from that testament, plus all the published Hermeneia volumes on noncannonical texts and specially selected additional commentaries.

Designed for the serious student of the Bible, each volume in the Hermeneia series aims to lay bare the ancient meaning of a biblical work and utilizes the full range of philological and historical tools. The aim of each volume is to provide critical discussion of each problem of interpretation and the primary data upon which the discussion is based. The authors make full use of ancient Semitic and classical languages along with English translations of all comparative materials- Greek, Latin, Canaanite, or Akkadian.

Including a selection of Continental Commentaries, original Hebrew text, and thousand of pages of commentary from respected theologians, Hermeneia Old Testament (on CD-ROM) is the perfect addition to your digital library. The thirty-nine commentaries included can be linked to your preferred Bible, original language searches can be executed at the click of a mouse, and these commentaries will appear in Passage Guide search results.
