The Library of Hebrew Bible/OT Studies: JSOTS Old Testament Monographs collection underscores the wide breadth of current academic research into the Old Testament. In seven absorbing volumes, contemporary scholars breathe new life into the Old Testament canon. Topics include the poetics of the Hebrew Bible, the relationship between Irish folktales and Old Testament narratives, the influence of Herodotus’ Histories on the OT, prophecy as a social institution, the varieties of interpretation possible for OT texts, and much, much more.
The Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement (renamed the Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies in 2005) is a premier book series that offers cutting-edge work for a readership of scholars, teachers in the field of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament studies, postgraduate students and advanced undergraduates. All the many and diverse aspects of Old Testament study are represented and promoted in the series, including innovative work from historical perspectives, studies using social-scientific and literary theory, and developing theological, cultural and contextual approaches.
The series was launched by Sheffield Academic Press in 1976, and is published regularly by T & T Clark International as The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies. This world-class religious academic publishing program is both interdisciplinary and international in scope, incorporating Sheffield Academic Press, T & T Clark and Trinity Press International.
