First published in hardback in August 1985, Professor Fishbane's book offers the first comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon of textual analysis in ancient Israel. It explores the rich tradition of exegesis prior to the development of biblical interpretation in early classical Judaism and the earliest Christian communities, and examines four main categories of exegesis: scribal, legal, aggadic, and mantological. In studying this subject, it emerges that the Hebrew Bible is not only the foundation document for the exegetical culture of Judaism and Christianity, but an exegetical work in its own right. Professor Fishbane, who has added new material in appendices to this paperback edition, has been awarded three major prizes for this work: the National Jewish Book Award 1986, the Biblical Archaeological Society 1986 Publication Award, and the Kenneth B. Smilen Literary Award.

Michael Fishbane is at Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts.Review:
"One of the major works of biblical interpretation in the last decade....[The book] is a compendium of exegetical insights rarely equalled in their depth or scope....Any serious interpreter or commentator will find it one of the few genuinely indispensable works of contemporary interpretation."--Theology Today
