Description: Evidence of Editing lays out the case for substantial and frequent editorial activity within the Hebrew Bible. The authors show how editors omitted, expanded, rewrote, and compiled both smaller and larger phrases and passages to address religious and political change. The book refines the exegetical method of literary and redaction criticism, and its results have important consequences for the future use of the Hebrew Bible in historical and theological studies.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Septuagint, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Textual Criticism, Quran
