David Jobling, a British Bible scholar, presents his classic arguments on Old Testament exegesis. This two-volume set covers a broad range of topics, but shares common outlook and methodology. Each volume contains three major essays which were written for different audiences, focusing on structural analysis and context. Each essay is divided into concise numbered sections and contains charts and notes. Jobling also addresses theological issues, narrative and semantic questions,and examines themes of gender and government. He provides a short introduction outlining the background for the essays and his search to find meaning in these Old Testament passages. Jobling also includes a substantial conclusion, summarizing the essays as a whole.
