Robson, James E.

Waco, TX: Baylor University Press, 2016 pp. xii +372. $34.95

Series Information
Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible


Description: In this volume, James Robson provides a foundational analysis of the Hebrew text of Deuteronomy 1–11. Distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text, Deuteronomy 1–11 is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Hebrew text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Deuteronomy 1–11 also reflects the most recent advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics. By filling the gap between popular and technical commentaries, the handbook becomes an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Pentateuch, Deuteronomy, Literature, Methods, Linguistics, Hebrew
