|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.
|A Call to Covenant Love by Jason DeRouchie|
Profound in its conclusions and targeted toward the exegete, this study offers a clear method for establishing literary macrostructure in OT prose. A brief literary-structural commentary on Deut 5–11 models the text grammatical approach and shows its benefits for exegesis.
|Syriac and Antiochian Exegesis and Biblical Theology for the 3rd Millennium by Robert Miller|
This volume of collected essays explores the exegesis of the patristic School of Antioch, the Syriac Church Fathers, and the churches of the Antiochian-Syriac traditions. This exegetical tradition can be of use in today's historical-critical biblical scholarship with relation to theology.
|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.

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.

|Title:||Hebrew Studies in the Reformation Period and After|
|Subtitle:||Their Place and Influence|
|Series:||Analecta Gorgiana 37|
|By George Box|
|Format:||Paperback, Black, 6 x 9 in|
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.
