The Historical Writings: Fortress Commentary on the Bible Study Edition (Paperback)
This commentary on the Historical Writings, excerpted from the Fortress Commentary on the Bible: The Old Testament and Apocrypha, engages readers in the work of biblical interpretation. Contributors from a rich diversity of perspectives connect historical-critical analysis with sensitivity to current theological, cultural, and interpretive issues.
Each chapter (Joshua through Esther) includes an introduction and commentary based on three lenses: ancient context, the interpretative tradition, and contemporary questions and challenges.
The Historical Writings introduces fresh perspectives and draws students, preachers, and interested readers into the challenging work of interpretation.
