The Sheffield Reader series collects the best articles on major fields of Old and New Testament studies from both the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament and the Journal for the Study of the New Testament. The range of the each volume reflects the breadth of the journals themselves. Hence the reader will find ground-breaking studies which introduce new critical questions and move into fresh areas of enquiry, surveys of the state of play in a particular topic of Old or New Testament studies, and articles which engage with each other in specific debates.
For students these volumes offer an invaluable critical introduction to a particular subject. More advanced students and scholars can use them to find background material for their own area of interest, or to gain an overview of the research in an area outside their specialty.
These titles build on the reputation of JSOT and JSNT as a conduit for first-class research and a major influence within the scholarly community.
