The section of the Old Testament—often referred to as “wisdom literature” and, in the Hebrew Bible, “Ketuvim,” or the Writings—contains some of the most elusive and difficult passages in all of Scripture. This collection of T&T Clark monographs on the Writings in the Hebrew Bible offers current research, exegesis, and theological reflection on these important, but often difficult to understand, books of the Bible. From Hebrew poetry and intertextuality to reception history and ancient Near Eastern context, these academic monographs offer cutting-edge research on the Writings in the Hebrew Bible.
These volumes are from the Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies (LHBOTS/JSOTS), a premier book series that offers state-of-the-art work for a readership of scholars, teachers in the field of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament studies, postgraduate students, and advanced undergraduates. All the diverse aspects of Old Testament study are discussed and promoted in the series, including innovative work that is both interdisciplinary and international in scope.
