Reviews - What do customers think about Handbook of Biblical Criticism?
Useful but not all inclusive Mar 9, 2008
This is a very handy little book for anyone interested in biblical studies. It's set up in alphabetical order, from acrostic and advocacy criticism to Walther Zimmerli and zweiquellentheorie, the two source theory. Want to know what 'mashal' means in biblical studies? It's all right here, in an easy to use format. This is especially useful for people who may not be familiar with German terms, for biblical scholarship for centuries has been dominated by German scholars. So if you come across "religionsgeschichtliche schule" it's a mention of the old History of religions theory.
One small caveat: it doesn't include the most modern scholarship.
