Judges and Ruth
Cambridge University Press, 12 ene. 2004 - 270 páginas
This commentary brings to life the world portrayed in the stories in Judges and Ruth, offering readers an "insider" perspective on the narratives. Having established a cultural and literary context for Judges and Ruth, the commentary then treats each episode separately and as a whole. It is written to be accessible for a wide audience of clergy, scholars, teachers, seminarians, and interested lay people. A "Suggested Reading List"--a feature of all volumes in the New Cambridge Bible Commentary--serves as a point of entry for the new serious student of Judges and Ruth. The entire NRSV translation is provided throughout the text as a convenience to the reader.
