Davies investigates the ways that the ancient world produced canons and textual collections, with special attention to the social practices embodied by scribes, schools, archives, and libraries. The result is a constructive proposal for how the Old Testament arose in its many parts. This book is a significant contribution to the understanding of scribal activity and its effect on Israel's texts.
