Exile and restoration revisited : essays on the Babylonian and Persian periods in memory of Peter R. Ackroyd( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume had its origins in a session presented to the Society of Biblical Literature in Washington in 2006 in order to examine the legacy of Peter Ackroyd to the field of biblical studies. Ackroyd's work stretched over a wide range of topics within Biblical Studies, notably study of prophetic literature and work on exile and restoration. This volume particularly focuses upon his work on the latter. Whilst the present work is founded upon the papers given at the session it also includes several essays solicited subsequently which further serve to draw the contributions together into a fitting tribute to a pioneer in his field. The contributions take account of Ackroyd's approach to the theme of exile and restoration, focusing largely upon the study of Ezra-Nehemiah and Chronciles. As a brief flavour, Bob Becking examines the epigraphic evidence concerning the mixed marriage crisis Ezra-Nehemiah. Joe Blenkinsopp seeks to find the 'Sons of Aaron' before the 5th Century in a fascinating essay focusing which picks up the work of R.H. Kennett over a century ago. Among the other distinguished contributors are John Bergsma, Eric Myers and Jill Middlemass
Exile and restoration : a study of Hebrew thought of the sixth century B.C. by Peter R Ackroyd( Book )

28 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period of exile and restoration is a crucial one for the understanding of the development of Old Testament thought. The collapse of the state, the destruction of the Temple, the breakup of the community -- all necessitated rethinking of the religious tradition. This book examines some of the aspects of the rich thought of the period

The first book of Samuel by Peter R Ackroyd( Book )

22 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Ackroyd's introduction summarizes the place of the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament canon, its relationship with history and its theological purpose. The main divisions of the text are those provided by the New English Bible itself, but the text is further subdivided for the purposes of the commentary, which draws out the kind of significance indicated in the introduction. As in the series of Cambridge Bible Commentaries on the New English Bible New Testament, short passages of text and the editor's commentary are interspersed so that the reader does not have to refer to another part of the book to find the commentary. A final brief section asks what is the theological message today of this account of the beginnings of the line of David, of Samuel's role as judge and of Saul's as king

The second book of Samuel : commentary by Peter R Ackroyd( Book )

19 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like the other volumes of the Cambridge Bible Commentary, this contains an introduction followed by the text of the New English Bible divided into sections. Each section of the text is followed by the commentary upon it. The Second Book of Samuel tells how David took full control of both the northern and southern Hebrew kingdoms and consolidated his power throughout the region. Professor Ackroyd's commentary concentrates on interpretation rather than historical reconstruction, and part of his introduction dealing with the theological significance of the Books of Samuel relates the religious tradition stemming from the Bible to present-day ways of thinking
