Description

The Psalms and Wisdom Literature is one of six textbooks covering the Old and New Testaments, all written by authors who have extensive experience of teaching students in their first two years of university-level study. This book offers an exploratory approach that enables students to engage with the text for themselves, and not simply to be passive learners. It provides activities and challenges at introductory and intermediate levels, the key background information needed to work at the required level, and ideas for further theological thought and reading. Students will discover: the kind of literature they are dealing with; the major questions in the scholarly study of these books; the structure and purpose of the books; the major themes and theology of each book; issues for today arising from each area of study. ‘A study of the prophets that will serve admirably as a textbook for a class or a resource for individual study. I recommend this book highly to all who want to learn more about this important part of Hebrew Scriptures’. Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College ‘I have found the range of topics treated by Lucas enormously impressive. From all the usual introductory topics through to detailed guidelines for interpretation, students will find here admirable summaries of the main scholarly views together with sensible comments to help evaluate them. I know of no other textbook on the Psalms and Writings that will service its intended readership so helpfully’. Professor H.G.M. Williamson, Regius Professor of Hebrew, University of Oxford Comments on Exploring the Old Testament: The Prophets: ‘It fulfils superbly its aim of making the prophets accessible to the student reader’ Professor Robert P. Gordon, University of Cambridge. 
Ernest Lucas is tutor in Biblical Studies at Bristol Baptist College. He is the author of Can we believe Genesis Today? (I.V.P., 2001) and Being Transformed (Marshall, 1988) as well as commentaries on Ezekiel and Daniel.
