Buy this book together with A Reassessment of Asherah by Steve Wiggins
This essay on the history of how the Hebrew Bible was considered during the Reformation period takes the reader into areas largely unexplored.  In addition to the Bible, the Kabala is brought into the discussion.  Box traces the development up to the advent of the critical study of the Bible which continued to be controversial when his study was published.+Asherah is one of the most popular goddesses known from the ancient world. In this second edition of the author’s 1993 monograph on the goddess, further articles and bibliography have been added to bring this expanding field of study more up-to-date. To date, this monograph contains the only full-length treatment of the Ugaritic material on Asherah in addition to a comprehensive examination of the textual sources from the Hebrew Bible, ancient Mesopotamia, Epigraphic South Arabian and Hittite sources, as well as the intriguing Hebrew inscriptions that perhaps mention the goddess.Save $18.28

A Call to Covenant Love by Jason DeRouchie
Profound in its conclusions and targeted toward the exegete, this volume offers a clear method for establishing flow of thought, text hierarchy, and literary macrostructure in biblical Hebrew prose. The study contributes both to hermeneutical theory and to the study of Deuteronomy by arguing for the application of discourse linguistics alongside stylistic and semantic analysis in the interpretation of OT texts. It includes a brief literary-structural and theological commentary on Deuteronomy 5–11 that models the text grammatical approach and shows its benefits for exegesis.


The Commentary of David Kimhi on Isaiah by Louis Finkelstein
The commentary of Rabbi David Kimhi (1160-1235) on the prophet Isaiah, chapters 1-39, in a Hebrew critical edition, makes up the main portion of this study. Presented with an English introduction by Louis Finkelstein, the commentary also includes a useful biography of Kimhi in English, an introduction to his commentary, and a presentation of a previously unknown treatise on Genesis in Hebrew.


Psychology of Prophecy by Jacob Kaplan
Kaplan’s inaugural study of the psychological basis of prophecy is a landmark in the history of prophetic exploration. Setting the standard for future studies of the prophets, this remarkable book covers the various conceptions of prophets and their attendant phenomena of premonition, revelation, dreams, visions, ecstasy, and inspiration.


Syriac and Antiochian Exegesis and Biblical Theology for the 3rd Millennium by Robert Miller
The observation that scholarly work on the Bible is of little use to theologians is the starting premise for this volume. As a possible solution to this impasse, the contributors explore the potential insights provided by a distinct tradition of biblical interpretation that has its roots in both the patristic School of Antioch and in the Syriac Fathers, such as Ephrem and Jacob of Sarug, and which has survived and developed in the Churches of the Antiochene Patrimony, such as the Maronite and Syriac.


The Interpretation of Dreams in the Ancient Near East by A. Oppenheim
Oppenheim’s foundational study on dreams and their interpretation in the Ancient Near East has long been a standard text for those interested in the role of dreams in the ancient world. With a new introduction by Scott Noegel, this edition presents the complete original study along with its photographs, as well as insights concerning how the book has fared over the past fifty years.

An astute essay concerning both Judaism and church history during the Reformation period, Box’s treatment of the state of Hebrew studies has long been overlooked. Insightful understanding of the larger outlines of history informs Box’s analysis of the topic. Beginning with Erasmus as an embodiment of the humanistic spirit of the age, Box draws up a roster of notable figures of the period who studied Hebrew materials. Pico della Mirandola and Johann Reuchlin are given substantial treatment. The place of the Kabala in Christian thought in the 16th and 17th centuries and its influence on Christianity through the work of Pico and Reuchlin are considered. The impact of scientific study and humanism on Hebrew lead up to the Reformation proper, at which point the Buxtorfs, and French and English Hebraists of the 17th century, enter the picture. Box concludes by tracing the rise of modern biblical criticism, an issue of some contention through the 19th century. This study on the development of Old Testament research will be of interest to historians and biblical scholars alike.

George Herbert Box (1869-1933) was Canon of St. Albans in England. He also held the post of Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament Exegesis at King’s College, London.
