Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible

What distinguishes the Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible (BHHB) series from other available resources is the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. Each handbook provides a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Hebrew text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as succinct and accessible analytic keys, the volumes in this series also reflect recent advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics and are informed by current discussions within Old Testament Studies. These handbooks prove themselves indispensable tools for anyone committed to a deep reading of these biblical texts in Hebrew.
