Review:

"I am glad to see Fortress publish this translation of Konrad Schmid's valuable The Old Testament: A Literary History. Schmid reads widely, organizes the entire corpus of Israelite literature into a sequence of historical periods, is informed by the most recent research in both German and English, and is concerned to make the biblical text more accessible in its development: a valuable and well-written resource." --Bernard M. Levinson, University of Minnesota

"This book offers a much needed synthesis of historical scholarship on the Hebrew Bible by one of Europe's leading Old Testament scholars. Schmid possesses remarkable knowledge of both European and North American biblical scholarship, and he guides the reader through each period of literary history with balance and an eye for the whole." --David Carr, Union Theological Seminary, New York
