Traditional study of the Old Testament has involved careful analysis of individual books in order to discover their component sources. Outlining some alternatives to this method--yet retaining the values of the conventional technique--this study considers the importance of sociology and anthropology, of liberations and feminist perspectives, and of literary criticism, providing a unique guide for those approaching the Old Testament for the first time, and for those who are disenchanted with staid forms of biblical analysis.

About the Author:

R. J. Coggins, Senior Lecturer in Old Testament Studies, King's College, London.

Review:

`This is an excellent book for those about to embark upon Reader training and a very valuable summary of the various approaches to Old Testament studies offered to us in recent years.' The Reader `There are clear, concise presentations of current scholarly approaches to the major areas of Old Testament study, and well-balanced evaluations of their usefulness.' The Month 'Richard Coggins has given us a superb introduction to the Old Testament, which reveals the orderliness of his own mind and inspires confidence ... a most comprehensive view of current approaches and debates ... It is thoroughly up to date' The Expository Times 'the clearest introduction that I have yet read ... This book is meant for the student. Its clarity and good judgement will be of great help to all readers. This is a small book but its readers will find it pure gold.' Canon Joseph Robinson, Master of the Temple, Church Times 'a gladly recommended read for literates ... It would also be a useful preliminary for those about to start theological or religious studies.' Peter Akehurst, Christian Weekly Newspapers Series
