The Apocrypha

Full Product Description

This concise commentary on the Apocrypha, 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. lntrocluctory articles describe the challenges of reading the Old Testament in ancient and contemporary contexts, relating the biblical theme of "the people of God" to our complex, multicultural world, and reading the Old Testament as Christian Scripture, followed by an "Introduction to the Apocrypha." Each chapter (Tobit through 4 Maccabees) includes an introduction and commentary on the text through the lenses of three critical questions: The Text in Its Ancient Context, The Text in the Interpretive Tradition and The Text in Contemporary Discussion. The Apocypha introduces fresh perspectives and draws students, as well as preachers and interested readers, into the challenging work of interpretation.

The Apocrypha by Gale A. Yee; Hugh R. Page; Matthew J. M. Coomber was published by Fortress Press,U.S. in September 2016. The ISBN for The Apocrypha is 9781506415871.
