Fortress Press The Hebrew Bible with CD-ROM: A Socio-Literary Introduction

Along with an overview of the Hebrew Bible, including introductions to each book, Gottwald provides social analysis of ancient Israel and how these books fit into that society. His acute treatment of literary genres, social conflicts, and contemporary scholarship makes this an indispensable textbook and reference work.

The volume contains many charts, study questions, and other aids, now enhanced by the new CD-ROM, which contains copious aids:

  • complete, searchable text of the book
  • glossary hyperlinked to the text of the book
  • NRSV hyperlinks
  • student assignments and discussion questions
  • a wealth of internet links
  • notetaking, bookmarking, and highlighting capabilities

Norman K. Gottwald is Professor of Old Testament Emeritus at New York Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous works, including The Tribes of Yahweh, All the Kingdoms of the Earth, A Light to the Nations, and The Politics of Ancient Israel.
