This revised edition includes rewritten material on historical questions in chapter 3; added material on the theme of liberation theology in chapter 7; a revised version of The Old Testament as Liberation; and a revised version of chapter 4. In addition, women and the bible are now considered in a separate chapter, and the continuing growth in biblical studies by women scholars is taken into account. Other smaller revisions are made throughout, and a much revised bibliography now includes more important works. Study of the Old Testament has in the past been dominated by what is often called the historical-critical method: careful analysis of individual books with great emphasis on historical context, and concern to isolate what was original, and (it was therefore assumed) most important. This volume not only retains the values of adopting this traditional approach, but also outlines the alternative understandings of the Old Testament which have gained currency in recent years.
