Item description for The Hebrew Bible: A Comparative Approach by Christopher D. Stanley...
Overview In The Hebrew Bible, Christopher D. Stanley provides a Hebrew Bible textbook admirably suited to college and university courses in religious studies. At once accessible and comprehensive, The Hebrew Bible approaches the Bible through the categories of comparative religion, carefully distinguishing the religion of ancient Israel from the religion represented in the Bible and discussing such dimensions of religion as the role of scripture, symbol and worldview, sacred narrative (myth), ritual and community, and the encounter with the holy. The companion website offers special resources for instructors and students including sample syllabi, PowerPoint presentations, study questions, and a research guide.
