    1 thought on “A Short Introduction to the Hebrew Bible

    1. I used this for first year Education for Ministry. I thought it was a wonderful introduction to the Old Testament and really helped me in my studies.

    2. I read this book as a companion to reading the Bible throughout 2015. It is superb! Collins clearly and succinctly introduces each book, reviewing its setting, content, and major scholarly issues. Written from both a faith- and scholarly-perspective, I recommend this book to anyone wishing to better understand the Hebrew Bible.

    3. I read this as part of the EFM program. With the understanding that this is an abbreviated edition, and a purely scholarly work, it is a highly informative and worthwhile text. Collins presents a thorough survey of the Hebrew bible, as well as a selection of the Apochrypha. He presents the historical findings concerning authorship, subject, and context in an accessible manner for the lay person. There are ample references and resources cited, as well as an enjoyable amount of maps and illustrati [...]

    4. This is an interesting read inasmuch as it gives a lot of detail about the historical background/context of The Hebrew Bible/ Old Testament. Naturally, as Collins is looking at these texts academically, there are differences in the interpretation of the scripture that I don't necessarily agree with, being an (educated) person of faith. But overall, for someone who wants to read the Old Testament analytically and for academic (not religious) purposes, this text is rather informative and is very e [...]

    5. Text for EFM Year One. The book is easy to read and informative about historical background and critical issues if a bit choppy in places. It left me wishing I had read the longer text.

    6. This is one of the texts for the Education for Ministry program, which offers seminary studies in small study groups. Collins also has a longer, more detailed text on the same topic that is also worth a read. This book is very clear and engaging. It is hard to read the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and really understand. Collins explains scripture so that we understand faith and religion, but also the social, political, and cultural influences that impact the canon that we know as the Bible.

    7. I am reading this for a class but am thoroughly enjoying learning more about the Hebrew Bible (not the Christian Old Testament). I will give it a final review at the end of the semester.I am reading the last chapter. I would recommend this book only if your are interested in a very condensed reading of the lifes of the Biblical Hebrew people, their beliefs and their Bible. It is very fact 'packed' and difficult to retain but non-the-less, worth reading.

    8. I read this book for my Education for Ministry class. It is informative and interesting. Collins introduces each book of the Hebrew Bible by putting it into its historical, literary and theological context. Sometimes his descriptions seemed incomplete- that is because this book is an abridged version of an even longer text. Sometimes I wished for Moe, but mostly I was grateful to have this excellent book as a guide to the Hebrew Bible

    9. I read this for my first year of EfM study, and found it quite helpful in explaining the Bible. Collins places each book of the Bible in a historical setting of time and place that helps in understanding the culture of that period and in understanding more fully what the author(s) intended. It was a real eye-opener for me.

    10. A very thorough textbook, with an angle of scholarship. This is not about right/wrong or true/false, but rather examining the context and what we know about the Hebrew Bible now. Collins represents several viewpoints and allows plenty of room for disagreement.

    11. While this is a good introduction, I think it is too general for anyone who has a Sunday School understanding of the Old Testament. It does include charts and maps and beautiful illustrations. In addition it has a dedicated website which is student friendly.

    12. An easy to read introduction to the Old Testament with a focus on historical backgrounds and interpretations.

    13. I thought this was a nice overview of the HB. It had some interesting points and provided a cursory glance at these texts and their context.

    14. I learned a lot from this book, which I got for a class. I recommend it to others for a historical look at the old testament!
