A history of Israel by John Bright( Book )

199 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 4,330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of Israel is the history of a people which came into being at a certain point in time as a league of tribes united in covenant with Yahweh, which subsequently existed as a nation, then as two nations, and finally as a religious community, but which was at all times set off from its environment as a distinctive cultural entity. The distinguishing factor that made Israel the peculiar phenomenon that she was, which both created her society and was the controlling factor in her history, was of course her religion. Since this is so, Israel's history is a subject inseparable from the history of Israel's religion. - Foreword

The kingdom of God : the Biblical concept and its meaning for the church by John Bright( Book )

23 editions published between 1952 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, as its title indicates, is concerned with an idea of central importance in the theology of the Bible. It seeks to trace for the benefit of the general Bible reader the history of that idea and to suggest its contemporary relevance. By this means, it is hoped, a contribution may be made to the understanding of the scriptures. For the concept of the kingdom of God involves, in a real sense, the total message of the Bible."--Preface
The authority of the Old Testament by John Bright( Book )

32 editions published between 1967 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the nature of the authority of Scripture, and in what sense does the Old Testament share that authority? What place does the Old Testament legitimately occupy in the Christian's Bible and in the church's proclamation? What principles ought to guide one in interpreting it to the congregation? These are the questions with which this book will attempt to deal, with what success the reader must judge. - Foreword

The Bible and the ancient Near East : essays in honor of William Foxwell Albright by G. Ernest Wright( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays of this volume, presented to Professor Albright on his seventieth birth-day, were written by nine of his outstanding pupils and five of this country's most eminent specialists in the study of the ancient Near East. The essays range almost as wide as the interests of the great scholar to whom they are dedicated, covering developments and trends of the past few decades in OT literature, history, language, archeology, paleography, chronology; South Arabian studies; Sumerian literature and religion; Egyptian language, literature, and religion; Hittite and Anatolian studies. John Bright in the opening essay on "Modern Study of Old Testament Literature" well says, "It is fitting that a volume in honor of William Foxwell Albright should begin with a chapter on Biblical literature and criticism. For, while it is possible that future generations will remember Professor Albright less as a Biblical critic sensu stricto than for his countless contributions to linguistic science, archeology, and the whole field of ancient Oriental history, it is probable that few men of our times have affected the course of Old Testament studies more profoundly than he. More than this, he has awakened an interest in, and imparted an understanding of, the Bible to many students who have sat at his feet, as the present writer would like gratefully to testify."--Http://www.jstor.org (Sep. 15, 2013)
