RESOURCES FOR BIBLICAL STUDY

The Rituals and Myths of the Feast of the Goodly Gods of KTU/CAT 1.23
Mark S. Smith

"Mark Smith has once again put us in his debt, writing an erudite and comprehensive commentary on perhaps the strangest of all Ugaritic texts.... Smith attacks this text with the full panoply of scholarly gear, including searching philological analyses, judicious critiques of previous work, and wellinformed use of ritual theory. It is a model of precision and interpretive scope, and ought to be emulated by others working on Ugaritic and other ancient texts."

—Ronald Hendel, University of California, Berkeley
Pages: xviii + 202 — ISBN: 1589832035—Binding: paperback —Price: $24.95 —Hardback edition available from Brill



 

TWO NEW TITLES IN THE SYMPOSIUM SERIES

"As Those Who Are Taught": The Interpretation of Isaiah from the LXX to the SBL
Edited by Claire Mathews McGinnis, Patricia K. Tull

This latest volume from the SBL's Formation of the Book of Isaiah Group surveys the history of Isaiah's interpretation over the course of two millennia, from the Septuagint and early versions, continuing through the centuries in Jewish and Christian exegesis, and concluding with the late twentieth century. Each chapter includes an introductory survey of the interpretation of Isaiah within a particular historical context and pursues a particular facet of Isaiah's interpretation by one of Isaiah's many readers in that time period.
Pages: xii + 342 — ISBN: 1589831039 — Binding: paperback —Price: $39.95 — Hardback edition available from Brill


A Farewell to the Yahwist?: The Composition of the Pentateuch in Recent European Interpretation
Edited by Thomas B. Dozeman and Konrad Schmid

A growing consensus in Europe argues that the larger blocks of pentateuchal tradition were not redactionally linked before the Priestly Code, as the J hypothesis suggests, but existed side by side as two independent, rival myths of Israel's origins. This volume makes available both the most recent European scholarship on the Pentateuch and its critical discussion, providing a helpful resource and fostering further dialogue between North American and European interpreters.

Pages: viii + 198— ISBN: 1589831632—Binding: paperback —Price: $24.95 — Hardback edition available from Brill
