Classic Commentaries and Studies on the Pentateuch (21 vols.)
The Classic Commentaries and Studies on the Pentateuch presents an impressive balance of perspectives from the history of biblical scholarship on the Five Books of Moses. With contributing voices from Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States, the contributors here provide an international taste of scholarship on the Pentateuch from a wide variety of perspectives. Some are fully entrenched in the higher criticism and analyses of the literary sources of the Pentateuch books, while others emphasize the traditional unity of the Pentateuch and the historic position of its authorship by Moses. Together these dueling perspectives give readings the opportunity to consider the evidence, historical, archaeological, and textual, and decide for themselves the nature and structure of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers of Deuteronomy.
The Roman Poetry Collection contains a wealth of history, culture, and lore presented with a vitality and descriptiveness only the freedom of poetry could create. The collection includes Epigrams by Martial, the creator of the poetic form of epigrams, who uses hundreds of brief, witty poems to give us snapshots of Roman life not found in history books. The collection also includes mimes written to playfully mock society, epic poems of famous tales like Jason and the golden fleece, heart-wrenching love poems written by people whose lives embody their writing, poems about the Roman spectacles, and many more forms, authors, and topics for you to examine Roman culture—including poems by Emperor Hadrian.
