Geoffrey H. Parke-Taylor won the R. B. Y. Scott Book Award for his work;

The Formation of the Book of Jeremiah: Doublets and Recurring Phrases. Society of Biblical Literature Monograph Series, vol. 51; Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, 2000. This detailed study of all the passages or phrases occurring more than once in the book of Jeremiah contributes to a reconstruction of the process by which the book was formed.

This award recognizes an outstanding book in the areas of Hebrew Bible and/or the Ancient Near East written by a member of the CSBS and published

during the previous two years (currently those with a copyright date of 2000 or 2001).

The award has been established in honour of Robert Balgarnie Young Scott, one of Canada's most renowned Old Testament Scholars. Scott was a founding member of the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies, served as the secretary-treasurer for its first seven years, and was named President of the

Society in 1971; he was also President of the Society of Biblical Literature in 1960.
