This addition to the prestigious Studies in Antiquity and Christianity (SAC) series is the first of a two-volume set of essays on the interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. The essays focus on 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. But the method moves well beyond the concerns of traditional form criticism to address the overall interpretation of the Hebrew Bible from the perspectives of the ancient biblical writers and contemporary readers. The result is a comprehensive interpretive methodology that employs a close reading of biblical texts, integrating concerns about literary form and theological perspective with the settings in which biblical texts were composed as well as the ways they are read in the present and the future. Such readings, the editors maintain, constitute the cutting edge of biblical interpretation at the outset of the millennium.

Volume 1 contains twenty-one essays, including seven by Knierim. Other contributors are: Mary Deely, Michael Floyd, John Goldingay, Robert Hubbard, Mignon Jacobs, Isaac Kalimi, Joel Kaminsky, Paul Kim, Wonil Kim, Charles Mabee, Steven Reed, and Janet Weathers.
