Ebach, Ruth and Martin Leuenberger, editors

Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2019 pp. x + 415. $181.00

Series Information
Forschungen zum Alten Testament, 127

Description: [Published in German.] The Old Testament is a work shaped by traditions, which at the same time lives through a multifarious use of traditions. These were not imparted in unaltered form, but were rather re-formed, corrected and refashioned to provide a theological interpretation fitting to each period. Just how this was done is shown in the present volume, based on the great Old Testament traditions, especially the Psalms and books of the prophets. Contributors include Rainer Albertz, Erhard Blum, Bernd Janowski, Jürgen H. Ebach, Ruth Ebach, Georg Fischer, Irmtraud Fischer, Judith Gärtner, Martin Leuenberger, Reinhard Müller, Christophe Nihan, Thomas Römer, Markus Saur, Bernd U. Schipper, Konrad Schmid, and Jakob Wöhrle.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Ancient Near Eastern History, History of Israel, Form, Tradition and Redaction Criticism
