Reviews - What do customers think about A Short Introduction to the Hebrew Bible?

A Short Introduction to the Hebrew Bible  Apr 28, 2010
The book looks like brand new. I was impressed that it was delivery to me in three days with standard mail.
 
A very readable text  Feb 18, 2010
This is a set text for a Theology paper that I am studying. I've found it very interesting, well set out and easy reading.
 
Interesting material, but not so well-written  Feb 12, 2010
The material in this book is very interesting, but it is presented in a very dry and technical manner. Another book I was reading for the same class, "How to Read the Bible: A Guide to Scripture, Then and Now" by James Kugel, basically presents the same material but in a much more dynamic, interesting, and relevant manner. The good thing about this book is that it's fairy short and has interesting graphics, but overall, I don't think you get too much out of this book other than a string of facts. No one really likes reading just a string of facts...
 
Excellent Guide  Oct 29, 2009
I was looking for a guide to the Old Testament to read as I worked my way through the Old Testament. I am retired, and I decided to read the Bible cover-to-cover, something I had never done. But I wanted a scholarly guide that would explain the history and give critical analyses of the books. This was just what I was looking for. Dr. Collins' knowledge and concise articulation were quite informative and provocative.
 
Informative, but bland  Oct 24, 2008
Collins' scholarship is excellent, his prose clear, and yet the book suffers a terrible flaw: it is incredibly bland. It plods along from one topic to the next without a hint of panache or razzle-dazzle. You will be sadly disappointed if you search for a joke within its covers. Rarely is there any sense of purpose in the exposition, rather it seems like a study-guide for an exam on the Hebrew Bible. It simply states what you need to know without really convincing you that you want to know it. For something with a little more flair and aplomb, I highly recommend How to Read the Bible: A Guide to Scripture, Then and Now.
