Introducing the Old Testament by R. J Coggins( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2003 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
A dictionary of the Bible by W. R. F Browning( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new work is an authoritative and accessible guide to the books of the Christian Bible. As well as providing helpful information about important places and personalities, the dictionary is particularly concerned to expound the themes and doctrines of the Bible and to indicate their status in the light of modern scholarship." "The book is ideal for students of the Bible, whether at school, college, or in church or community study groups, or those who simply wish to improve their biblical knowledge. With over 2,000 entries, from Adam to Zechariah, it ranges from the earliest period to the beginning of the second century CE/AD. The entries cover the books of the Bible, people and places, customs, religions and worship, history, and theology. There are clear explanations of technical terms, methods of interpretation and critical analysis, as well as notes on leading biblical scholars and their contributions. In addition to maps, the appendices include tables of weights and measures and important dates in biblical history." "Full references are provided to the text of the Bible and W.R.F. Browning gives alternative views on current disputed and controversial issues, taking into account the work of both Christian scholars of all denominations and Jewish scholars. The wide scope of the dictionary allows entries from earthquakes and mice to allegory and the Dead Sea Scrolls, making this a lively and absorbing reference work for all readers of the Bible."--Jacket

Samaritans and Jews : the origins of Samaritanism reconsidered by R. J Coggins( Book )

18 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gospel of John indicates that in biblical times the Jews had no dealings with the Samaritans. The hostility between these two groups is well-known by all who read the Bible, but little is known of how and when the hostility began. R.J. Coggins claims that it was not a sudden dramatic event but a long period of bitter relations that led to the Samaritans' division from the Jews. He looks again at Old Testament and Jewish literary references to Samaritans, evaluates archaeological investigations, and studies the Samaritans' own understanding of their early history

Sirach by R. J Coggins( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sirach is a book that raises a very distinctive set of problems. What should we call it (Sirach, Ecclesiasticus, Ben Sira)? What is the relation between the traditional Greek text and the recently rediscovered Hebrew parts of the book? Where did it stand in relation to Jewish tradition and the Hellenism that was sweeping the Mediterranean world? In this guide, a new addition to Sheffield's series on the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, these questions are discussed, as well as the use the author made of Scripture, and the scholarly placing of the book in the Wisdom tradition. The author's attitude to women is considered and the volume ends with a consideration of some of the chief theological themes of Sirach
Joel and Amos by R. J Coggins( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six minor prophets through the centuries by R. J Coggins( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Six Minor Prophets Through the Centuries is the work of highly respected biblical scholars, Jin H. Han and Richard Coggins. The volume explores the rich and complex reception history of the last six Minor Prophets in the exegesis, theology, worship, and arts of Judaism and Christianity, with Han focusing on Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah, and Coggins on Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. This latest title in the outstanding Blackwell Bible Commentary series is the only available text that covers these six prophets within a single volume, providing an essential reference for students, scholars, clergy, and general readers. The Minor Prophets have left a mark disproportionate to their length on the history of biblical reception. Suggestive allusions and references appear throughout ancient, medieval and modern literature, as well as in sculpture and paintings. Each has a special role to play in the Jewish and Christian traditions. Although the six books examined here are known to Christians as Minor Prophets, this epithet refers only to the length of their accounts, and not to their significance to believers, readers, and artists across the centuries"--
