Synopsis

For these two volumes, the author has selected 50 articles and papers, ten of them not previously published, from his work as an Old Testament scholar over the last 30 years. Some of the papers, like The Evidence for an Autumnal New Year in Pre-exilic Israel Reconsidered, are far from postmodern in their outlook. But there is ample evidence here that the postmodern is indeed the direction in which his mind has been moving. The essays are organized in eight sections (Method, Literature, History, Theology, Language, Psalms, Job-and, for entertainment, Divertimenti). They include Reading Esther from Left to Right, Beyond Synchronic Diachronic, Story and Poem: The Old Testament as Literature and as Scripture, In Search of the Indian Job, and Philology and Power-as well as The Postmodern Adventure in Biblical Studies.
