The resources in this collection offer the academic compelling discourse on historical methodology in the study of the Old Testament. One book pays tribute to the late Michael P. Weitzman, distinguished scholar of the Hebrew language, by concentrating on important topics in Isaiah, Hosea, and Job, as well as ancient versions of the Hebrew Bible, intertestamental texts, and Eastern Church traditions. Two books discuss with acumen, although not with agreement, the issue of Moses, the Bible and the Hellenistic Period. The final book’s topic is again Moses, but it looks at the patriarch through a many-sided prism.
