Editorial Reviews

Review

"A remarkable achievement. Substantive and systematic, it integrates history, theology, faith, reason, Scripture, and tradition—all in light of the living authority of the Church."
Most Rev. Robert Barron, S.T.D., Auxiliary Bishop, Archdiocese of Los Angeles; Founder, Word on Fire Ministries

"Truly a magnificent achievement. It offers one of the most desperately needed elements of a renewed biblical pedagogy, the restoration of the Old Testament to its rightfully indispensable place in the life of the Church."
John C. Cavadini, Ph.D., Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame

"This book far outpaces the competition with its historical erudition and liturgical depth."
Matthew Levering, Ph.D., James N. and Mary D. Perry Jr. Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary

"Uses the tools of solid historical-critical methodologies and is deeply rooted in the patristic and medieval exegetical tradition. This work will prove to be an invaluable resource."
Rev. James Wehner, S.T.D., Rector-President, Notre Dame Seminary, New Orleans

"This is the introduction to the Old Testament I’ve been waiting for! It is up-to-date, erudite yet accessible, succinct yet thorough, and most importantly, it responds to the Church’s call for biblical scholarship done from a hermeneutic of faith."
Mary Healy, Ph.D., Professor of Scripture, Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit

"A comprehensive guide to navigating the Old Testament that synthesizes the best of historical-critical research, the history of interpretation across the centuries, and the living faith of God’s people."
Rev. Christopher Ciccarino, S.S.L., S.T.D., Associate Dean, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology

"With lucid writing and scholarly attention, Bergsma and Pitre unpack the Scripture—acknowledging academic debates but always embracing magisterial teaching. Stupendous!"
Rev. Dr. George E. Schultze, S.J., President-Rector, St. Patrick's Seminary, Menlo Park, CA

"What sets this introduction to the Old Testament apart from many others is its integrated approach."
Pablo T. Gadenz, S.T.D., Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, Seton Hall University

"Comprehensive in scope, this judicious and magisterial volume, replete with extensive bibliographies, will be used in classrooms for years to come."
Mark Giszczak, S.S.L., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Sacred Scripture, Augustine Institute

"While written for Roman Catholics, this volume offers Protestants clear introductions to texts they rarely read and to the hermeneutic that underlies Roman Catholic theology."
Daniel I. Block, D.Phil., Gunther H. Knoedler Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Wheaton College

"Carefully researched and...of benefit to biblical scholars of all kinds. The authors are judicious in...the way they deal with critical issues of composition and interpretation."
Richard E. Averbeck, Ph.D., Professor of Old Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"This clear and remarkably thorough resource introduces the books belonging to the Roman Catholic canon of the Old Testament with insight and interpretive balance."
Roy E. Gane, Ph.D., Professor of Hebrew Bible, Andrews University
