Reviews - What do customers think about Notes on the Hebrew Text of Samuel?
A Legendary Classic Jul 4, 2001
This is one of the finest and most influential books ever written about the Bible; it is still frequently cited in books and articles. The Hebrew text of the Book of Samuel seems to be surprisingly ... - probably more so than any other book of the Old Testament. Driver did some brilliant work to reconstruct the original text. His conclusions have withstood the test of time. The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered decades after Driver's death, have for the most part only confirmed his ideas. Read this, not only for the light it sheds on Samuel, but to see how a master went about the textual criticism of the Old Testament.
