Psalm 119 : the exaltation of Torah by David Noel Freedman( )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The alphabetic acrostic is one of the most easily identifiable poetic forms in the Hebrew Bible. Yet its very obviousness has tended to deflect deeper exploration of its structure and purpose. There is no priori reason that alphabetic acrostics should be less creative, expressive, or complex than other psalms. Thus the essays collected here investigate the acrostic format as a legitimate option for Israelite poets rather than as the refuge of uninspired epigones. Freedman focuses on the technical aspects of the psalms: metrics, syllable counts, colon length, and symmetry within the psalm. The results show that the poets' creativity functioned at all levels, from the individual line to the complete psalm." -- Back Cover

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

13 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life and mission of Amos the shepherd and prophet have always fascinated students of the Old Testament. This rancher-farmer from Tekoa, summoned dramatically by Yahweh to prophesy to Israel under the kingship of Jeroboam II (eighth century B.C.E.) about the corruption, injustice, and religious insincerity of his time, has intrigued scholars for centuries. Was Amos' message one of judgment and retribution only, or also of redemption? Noted scholars Francis I. Andersen and David Noel Freedman, authors of the critically acclaimed Hosea, team up to examine and explain this critical segment of the Bible. Using new insights and modern methods, the authors interpret the text clearly, enthusiastically, and with startling perception. Readers will gain a new understanding of the historical, literary, and religious dimensions of the book of Amos
Micah : a new translation with introduction and commentary by Francis I Andersen( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the twelve Minor Prophets, Micah unwaveringly spoke God's message to Israel--a message filled with judgment but also laced with the promise of redemption. Micah combined poetic complexity and literary sophistication to compel his audience to respond. And now, through an exacting linguistic and literary analysis of the biblical text, coauthors Francis I. Andersen and David Noel Freedman explain what Micah meant to his contemporaries, as well as what his message means to readers today. What sets Micah apart is the attention it pays to the details of the prophet's original text. The commentary is descriptive rather than speculative, philological rather than theological. With unusual care, the authors--two of the world's leading Bible scholars--examine the features of Micah's biblical Hebrew and prophetic discourse. They discover the use of a special kind of language, which, in its poetic composition, differs significantly from the language of classical Hebrew prose. At the zenith of their careers, masters of all relevant disciplines, Andersen and Freedman are the perfect duo to unlock the words of this challenging prophet
The nine commandments : uncovering a hidden pattern of crime and punishment in the Hebrew Bible by David Noel Freedman( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a powerful and persuasive argument, Freedman asserts that this hidden trail of sins betrays the hand of a master editor, who skillfully wove into Israel's history a message to a community in their Babylonian exile that their fate is not the result of God's abandoning them, but a consequence of their abandonment of God. With wit and insight, The Nine Commandments boldly challenges previous scholarship and conventional beliefs."--Jacket
The rivers of paradise : Moses, Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and Muhammad as religious founders by Michael J McClymond( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important volume explores the lives of the five founders of major world religions--Moses, Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and Muhammad--chronicling what is actually known of these charismatic men and introducing readers to the cultural and religious worlds that heard their messages. Readers in predominantly Christian lands, in addition to learning about the lives of Confucius, Buddha, and Muhammad--whom they might not be familiar with--will also be introduced to modern research now casting fresh light on the careers of Moses and Jesus. Whether studied individually or in comparison with one another, these biographies, together with a chapter on the characteristics of religious leadership, chart the spiritual rivers that continue to feed the diversity of religious expression today
New directions in Biblical archaeology by David Noel Freedman( Book )

Studies in ancient Yahwistic poetry by Frank Moore Cross( Book )

18 editions published between 1950 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ancient Yahwistic poetry is a particularly tempting field of study. In this small body of literature are preserved the oldest and most creative expressions of Israel's faith. This study of ancient Yahwistic poetry by Frank Moore Cross Jr. and David Noel Freedman untangles some of the serious textual difficulties and linguistic obscurities that have been a challenge to students of the Hebrew Bible for many generations." "The results of a joint doctoral dissertation originally submitted in 1950 and published in 1975, this volume has withstood the test of time; it offers analysis and conclusions regarding the Old Testament's Yahwistic poetry that remains as innovative and authoritative today as they were almost fifty years ago. Following an important introduction to the study of Yahwistic poetry, the book focuses in detail on "The Song of Miriam" (Exodus 15), "The Blessing of Jacob" (Genesis 49), "The Blessing of Moses" (Deuteronomy 33), and "A Royal Song of Thanksgiving" (2 Samuel 22 = Psalm 18). This edition also includes new prefaces by Cross and Freedman that give their present perspectives on this classic work in biblical studies."--Jacket
William Foxwell Albright, a twentieth-century genius by Leona Glidden Running( Book )

11 editions published between 1975 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this biographical account of the acknowledged dean of biblical archaeology, Running and Freedman attempt to draw an objective picture of Albright and let the man speak for himself. The most famous Biblical archaeologist in the world at the time of his death, William Foxwell Albright's name is known and his work respected by everyone in his field. For many years chairman of the Oriental Seminary at Johns Hopkins University, Albright sent a whole generation of Biblical scholars out all over the world, and a large number of the leading figures in the field today are former students of this remarkable man. -- Amazon.com

Pottery, poetry, and prophecy : studies in early Hebrew poetry by David Noel Freedman( Book )

10 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers published here are pioneering studies, fresh and provocative, full of brilliant detail, together yielding major advances in the analysis of Hebrew poetry ... Freedman is moved by symmetries in Hebrew poetry undetected by a previous generation of students--symmetries, or rhythms at every level: phonetic, morphological, grammatical, structural in colon, verse, and strophe. He desires as well to provide a scholarly description and notation to Hebrew prosodic canons and techniques more refined and precise than alternate systems afford. He has a sure and instinctive literary feel for his material."--Jacket
