Baden, J.S.
The Composition of the Pentateuch. Renewing the Documentary Hypothesis
For well over two centuries the question of the composition of the Pentateuch has been among the most widespread and hotly debated issues in the field of biblical studies. In this book, Joel Baden presents a synthesized history of these disagreements and the varying methodologies each school has defended. Advocating a modified approach, Baden offers an introduction to the history of Pentateuchal scholarship, a critical argument suggesting ways out of these methodological impasses, and a practical application of various theories to the text itself.

Opening the Books of Moses
This first volume in a six volume series within the BibleWorld series forms an introduction, setting out the background information about the contents, creation, dating and audience of the Pentateuch, including a section on the Samaritan Pentateuch, a sketch of Jewish areas in the Persian period and a list of the major themes to be handled in the subsequent five volumes.
These themes include 1) Torah, 2) geography, 3) ethnicity, 4) Yahweh and other deities, 5) theories of cult in the Pentateuch, 6) treaty, loyalty oath and royal grant, and 7) Moses.
The volume is aimed at undergraduates but it will also serve graduates and scholars. Although it is intended to introduce the forthcoming series, it is a volume that can stand alone as a very useful resource.
The remaining five volumes on individual books comprising the Pentateuch will differ from ordinary commentaries in that they will approach the literary and ideological aspects of texts by focusing on key themes, how they are addressed within each book of the Pentateuch and what they imply about the issues and trends within the society at the time the books were created.

De staf van Mozes
De staf van Mozes is een neerslag van de omgang van de oude verhalen en de mensen van nu. Die mensen zijn mensen met veel meer vragen dan antwoorden. Dit geschrift is eigenlijk een soort voortzetting van de gesprekken in kringen en de viering van de verhalen in zondagse diensten. Schitterende verhalen hebben generaties later de sobere historische gegevens verwerkt, aangevuld, veranderd...zodat de 'herinneringen' aan vroeger werden tot bemoedigingen voor later.

Schmid, Konrad
The Old Testament. A Literary History
Renowned Hebrew Bible scholar Konrad Schmid here provides a comprehensive discussion of the task, history, and conditions of the history of Old Testament literature. He carefully considers the dynamics of language, orality, literacy, and the range of social and political conditions that shaped Israel's writing at each period of the people's history and explores the significance of the transformation of various writings into "Scripture" and a biblical canon.

Steiner, Richard C.
A Biblical Translation in the Making. The Evolution and Impact of Saadia Gaon's Tafsir
In his youth, R. Saadia Gaon (882-942 CE) dreamed of publishing a proper translation of the "Torah" for Arabic-speaking Jews, to replace the overly literal ones in vogue at the time. His dream was fulfilled with the issuing of the "Tafsir", the most important Jewish Bible translation of the Middle Ages. In this monograph, Richard C. Steiner traces the history of the "Tafsir" - its roots, its modest beginnings, and its subsequent evolution. He argues that the first edition was an annotated translation prepared while Saadia was a student in Tiberias and that a page from a copy of it has survived in the Cairo Genizah. Steiner pays particular attention to the history of two innovative features of the translation that were useful in dealing with Muslim polemicists but distasteful to many Jews. These two features, one stylistic and one theological/philological, reflect the intellectual context in which Saadia worked; indeed, they are adumbrated in treatments of the Bible by two prominent Muslim scholars of the ninth century, Ibn Qutayba and Al-Jahiz.

Thomas , Matthew A.
These are the Generations: Identity, Covenant, and the 'Toledot' Formula
Using a combination of form-critical and linguistic methods, the author seeks to understand the role of the toledot formula, often translated "These are the generations of Name," in shaping the book of Genesis and the Pentateuch as a whole. An examination of the formula uncovers that it functions primarily as a heading to major sections of text and draws the readers' attention to focus on an ever narrower range of characters.By starting from the perspective of the surface structure of the text and addressing questions that investigation raises, the study is able to uncover and resolve a number of tensions within the text, as well as provide insights into a number of other questions surrounding the toledot headings and the organization of the structure of the Pentateuch.

Tsedaka, Benyamin
The Israelite Samaritan Version of the Torah: First English Translation Compared with the Masoretic Version
Here, for the first time in English, Benyamim Tsedaka presents the Samaritan version of the Pentateuch, a text of growing interest and importance for biblical studies. Tsedaka's expert English translation is presented parallel to the more familiar Masoretic text (in english), a format that highlights the more than six thousand differences between the Samaritan and Masoretic versions. Extensive margin notes provide further help and explanation, and detailed indices tie the Samaritan Torah to the Septuagint versions and the Dead Sea Scroll texts.

Young, Ian, Robert Rezetko
Linguistic Dating of Biblical Texts, volume 1: An Introduction to Approaches and Problems
Since the beginning of critical scholarship, Biblical texts have been dated using linguistic evidence. In recent years this has become a controversial topic, especially with the publication of "Ian Young(ed), Biblical Hebrew Studies in Chronology and Typology, London, 2003". However, until now there has been no introduction to the field aimed at students with only a reasonable grounding in Biblical Hebrew. The present book introduces the question of linguistic dating by giving students hands-on experience with both biblical and non-biblical texts. What is it that makes "Archaic Biblical Hebrew" texts archaic? What sources exist for second millennium BCE northwest Semitic? What are the similarities and differences between Hebrew inscriptions and the language of the biblical texts? What is late about "Late Biblical Hebrew"? In what ways are the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Mishnah relevant to the discussion? Students are shown significant linguistic features of the texts by means of notes on the passages presented for study. The book details both the consensus views on linguistic dating as well as the views of those who challenge the consensus. The arguments of both sides of the debate are presented, so that students are able to understand the potential significance of the linguistic forms they study in Biblical Hebrew texts.
