Description: This first volume of The Hebrew Bible: A Critical Edition series features a critical text of Proverbs with extensive text-critical introductions and commentaries. This and future HBCE volumes bring together a scholarís critical decisions into an eclectic text, drawing from many manuscripts or placing entirely variant texts side by side. A common approach for critical editions of other ancient books, including the New Testament, the eclectic approach and scope used in the HBCE is a first of its kind for the Hebrew Bible.
Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Wisdom Literature, Proverbs, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Form, Tradition and Redaction Criticism, Textual Criticism
