24 editions published between 1967 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is not intended primarily for archaeologists -- it may, however, hold some interest for them -- but for those many students of the Old Testament, whether they be teachers of Scripture in schools, or clergy, or others who are not professional scholars, who wish to know what interest and importance particular sites in Palestine and in other countries of the ancient Near East have for them. The contributions are accordingly not intended to be technical archaeological studies. They attempt rather to relate the archaeological material from the sites as closely as possible to the Old Testament, and to bring out relevant points of interest concerning history, chronology, geography, literature, religion, social life, and so on

20 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World of Ancient Israel is especially concerned to explore in greater depth than comparable studies the areas and degrees of overlap between approaches to the subject of Old Testament research adopted by scholars and students of theology and the social sciences. Increasing numbers of scholars have recognized the valuable insights that can be gained from a cross-disciplinary approach, and it is becoming clear that the early Biblical traditions must be examined in the light of comparative anthropology if useful historical conclusions are to be drawn from them

The dictionary of classical Hebrew by David J. A Clines( Book )

in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew is a completely new and innovative dictionary. Unlike previous dictionaries, which have been dictionaries of biblical Hebrew, it is the first dictionary of the classical Hebrew language to cover not only the biblical texts but also Ben Sira, the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Hebrew inscriptions. This Dictionary covers the period from the earliest times to 200 CE. It lists and analyses every occurrence of each Hebrew word that occurs in texts of that period, with an English translation of every Hebrew word and phrase cited. Among its special features are: a list of the non-biblical texts cited (especially the Dead Sea Scrolls), a word frequency index for each letter of the alphabet, a substantial bibliography (from Volume 2 onward) and an English-Hebrew index in each volume."--Publisher description

Ecclesiastes : based on the Revised Standard version by R. N Whybray( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1997 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecclesiastes is at once a strange book and a modern one, at once enigmatic and curiously familiar. Here we find a man detached from the world and yet intensely aware of it, setting down in writing his thoughts about human life. Yet from the very first his readers have been unable to agree about his basic attitude to life. Whybray sorts through the options by asking questions regarding the author, his times, his language and his ideas
The making of the Pentateuch : a methodological study by R. N Whybray( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

''Whybray's recent book is a masterful review of all the options set out by critical scholarship since Wellhausen, i.e., over the last century. It is an exhaustive and up to date treatment, concise and highly readable.'' E. Dyck, Crux ''Sensitive to standards of ancient historiography and parallels from the Greek sphere, Whybray proposes that the Pentateuch is the work of an ancient historian, possibly designed as a supplement or prologue to the deuteronomistic history
Daniel by Philip R Davies( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel has engendered a good deal of controversial debate, especially regarding its date and authorship and its 'apocalyptic' character. In this introduction for the student, the scholarly issues are carefully described and assessed, while emphasis is placed on the literary and theological aspects of the book, which have been comparatively neglected, but which reflect the concerns and interests of contemporary Old Testament scholarship. This volume thus looks both at the past scholarship and points towards future trends in the understanding of a unique literary and theological masterpiece. It
