About the Authors
  • The New Cambridge History of the Bible comprises four volumes that take into account the considerable advances in scholarship made in almost all biblical disciplines during the previous forty years. The volumes respond to shifts in scholarly methods of study of the Old and New Testaments, look closely at specialized forms of interpretation, and address the new concerns of the twenty-first century. Attention is paid to biblical studies in eastern Christian, Jewish, and Islamic contexts, rendering the series of interest to students of all Abrahamic faiths. The entire New Cambridge History of the Bible offers a comprehensive account of the development of the Bible from its origins to the present day, but each volume can also be read independently, proving a substantial contribution to the scholarship of the period it covers. This New Cambridge History will provide an invaluable resource for scholars, researchers, and students alike.

    • Essays by leading authorities offer a reliable overview in a field where secondary comment is extensive and complex
    • Demonstrates and explains the continuing impact of the Bible on widely different cultures and societies across the world
    • Chapters are written by scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds, representative of the best of current scholarship
    • Using the most up-to-date approaches to the study of the Bible, it is the most comprehensive survey currently available, which should serve as the starting point for all research in the field of Biblical studies
