Overview

This is the second volume of a two-volume set of essays devoted to the interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. The essays take as their foundation the exegetical methodology developed by Rolf P. Knierim at the Institute for Antiquity and Christianity in Claremont, California.

The exegetical foundations of Knierim's methodology pay special attention to the literary forms and conceptual underpinnings of biblical texts. The result is an interpretive method that combines a close reading of biblical texts with contextual criticism to understand the theological perspective from which the biblical texts were written.

The sixteen essays in this volume apply the method outlined in volume one to several biblical texts ranging from Joshua 1-12 and its “theology of extermination” to Leviticus 15 and its contrasting conceptual associations about women. The contributors hope that their exegetical work and theoretical reflection will continue to guide the course of Hebrew Bible studies in the twenty-first century.
