Habakkuk : a new translation with introduction and commentary by Francis I Andersen( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book of Habakkuk (one of the twelve Minor Prophets) is an intensely personal testimony played out against a highly political backdrop. Writing as his land and his fellow Israelites were being invaded and plundered by the Chaldeans, Habakkuk questions God{u2019}s actions with a passion equal to Job{u2019}s. Habakkuk wonders, how can a God who is just and compassionate allow his people to be slaughtered? In trying to punish the Israelites and right the wrongs of his people, why did God choose the savage, infinitely more wicked Chaldeans as his instrument? The puzzles Habakkuk contemplates will stir the hearts and minds of anyone who has ever wrestled with the evils of existence. Francis I. Andersen, a well-known authority on the Minor Prophets and acclaimed for his pioneering work in the study of biblical Hebrew, examines Habakkuk both as a work of sophisticated theological inquiry and as an artistic creation. The result is a book that illuminates the nuances of the text and brings to life the culture and values of the ancient Israelites through a compelling portrait of one the Bible{u2019}s most fascinating and most elusive prophets
Job : an introduction and commentary by Francis I Andersen( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Old Testament book about Job is one of the supreme offerings of the human mind to the living God and one of the best gifts of God to men," writes Francis Andersen. "The task of understanding it is as rewarding as it is strenuous. ... One is constantly amazed at its audacious theology and at the magnitude of its intellectual achievement. Job is a prodigious book in the vast range of its ideas, in its broad coverage of human experience, in the intensity of its passion, in the immensity of its concept of God, and not least in its superb literary craftsmanship. ... From one man's agony it reaches out to the mystery of God, beyond words and explanations."--Publisher

Spelling in the Hebrew Bible : Dahood memorial lecture by Francis I Andersen( Book )

12 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an outgrowth of the Dahood Memorial Lectures delivered at the University of Michigan, February 8-10, 1983. It attempts four things: first, it describes the orthographic phenomena of the Hebrew Bible; second, it assess the evidence by means of appropriate statistical analyses; third, it interprets the evidence in terms of the history of Hebrew spelling; finally, it speculates on the significance of this evidence for studies in the production and transmission of the text"--Page 4 of cover

Job : an introduction and commentary by Francis I Andersen( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Francis Andersen, the Old Testament book about Job is one of the supreme offerings of the human mind to the living God, and one of the best gifts of God to humanity. "The task of understanding it is as rewarding as it is strenuous. ... One is constantly amazed at its audacious theology and at the magnitude of its intellectual achievement. Job is a prodigious book in the vast range of its ideas, in its broad coverage of human experience, in the intensity of its passion, in the immensity of its concept of God, and not least in its superb literary craftsmanship. ... From one man's agony it reaches out to the mystery of God, beyond words and explanations." The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. - Publisher
