Recent years have seen new developments in linguistics, literary theory, Old Testament scholarship, and other disciplines related to the study of Hebrew—from new understandings of language and language change, to more developed understanding of the difficulties involved in translations and interpretation.
The 7-volume Hebrew Studies Collection contains contributions from David Noel Freedman, Walter Brueggeman, Philip R. Davies, David J. A. Clines, and dozens of other scholars working at the intersection of Old Testament scholarship, Hebrew study, and linguistics. Contributors also examine the Hebrew texts of specific books and sections of the Hebrew Bible, including Johan Renkema on Lamentations, Carole Fontaine on Job, Mark F. Rooker’s important work on biblical Hebrew in Ezekiel, and much more. It also contains Alviero Niccacci’s landmark work on the syntax of Hebrew verbs. This collection will especially benefit scholars who specialize in Hebrew poetry, drawing from some of the most significant scholarship to appear in the past half century from Wilfred Watson and Michael Patrick O’Connor, co-editor of the Waltke/O'Connor Introduction to Biblical Hebrew Syntax.
