Overview

The Hermeneia series is designed to be a critical and historical commentary to the Bible without arbitrary limits in size or scope. It will utilize the full range of philological and historical tools, including textual criticism (often slighted in modern commentaries), the methods of the history of tradition (including genre and prosodic analysis), and the history of religion. Great for the serious student of the Bible, it will make full use of ancient Semitic and classical languages; at the same time, English translations of all comparative materials—Greek, Latin, Canaanite, or Akkadian—will be supplied alongside the citation of the source in its original language. Insofar as possible, the aim is to provide the student or scholar with full critical discussion of each problem of interpretation and with the primary data upon which the discussion is based.

The editors of Hermeneia impose no systematic-theological perspective upon the series (directly, or indirectly by selection of authors). It is expected that authors will struggle to lay bare the ancient meaning of a biblical work or pericope. In this way the text’s human relevance should become transparent, as is always the case in competent historical discourse. However, the series eschews for itself homiletical translation of the Bible.

  • Contains Continental Commentaries and Hermeneia Commentaries
  • A fantastic collection for students, teachers, scholars, and professors

Praise for the Print Edition

Taken together, Hermeneia represents some of the best recent biblical scholarship . . . I have no hesitation in recommending them for students.

—Morna D. Hooker, Lady Margaret’s Professor of Divinity Emerita, University of Cambridge

Hermeneia will be the benchmark and reference point for all future work.

—Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

    The series is mainly useful for seminarians. Amazing back to school deal--this series will never be this cheap again.
