"Revised, expanded, and updated, The Old Testament: Text and Context, Second Edition, builds upon the accessible approach to the literature, history, and social context of the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible that has made this textbook a university classroom standard. By focusing on four themes found in the biblical narratives - covenant, universalism, wisdom, and remnant - classroom veterans Victor H. Matthews and James C. Moyer equip readers to appreciate the unity and diversity found within the Hebrew Bible. In addition, the authors introduce readers to the importance of archaeology and critical scholarly methods, paying particular attention to the original Mediterranean context - how it differs from modern Western culture - and its importance for interpretation."
