Discover the riches of Scripture with this series of comprehensive, up-to-date and student-friendly introductions to the interpretations of different books of the Bible in the Discovering Biblical Texts series.
Each introduction encourages in-depth study of the text, grappling with the theological and historical questions raised and presenting a critical assessment of key interpreters and interpretative debates. Drawing on a range of methodological approaches as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of understanding the text, they provide reading strategies that cover interpretations both ancient and modern.
With special sections exploring the reception history of biblical texts, locating them in their ideological, political and economic contexts, these are invaluable guides that encourage you to engage with the text and lay the foundations for ongoing study.
Special note: For the best experience when navigating this resource, we recommend setting the table of contents to list view. As an introductory series covering the theological and historical background of the text, much of the included information is broadly thematic and not verse-specific.
