"Ten Year's have passed since that August afternoon of 1959 when my tranquil studying in the Library of The Biblical Institute in Jerusalem was interrupted by an intruder who sat himself opposite me at the table and began approximately thus: "For a number of years you have been publishing for Biblica potboilers on the Psalter, and it seems to me that you should now devote your energy to something more substantial...." - Preface for The Anchor Bible's Psalms 101-150: Introduction, Translation And Notes

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowed and tanned but clear of any markings. "The original plan was to include Psalms 51-150 in the second volume (cf. Psalms I [The Anchor Bible, vol.16; New York, 1966], pp. XVIII, XLIII) but this has not proved feasible. The amount of relevant Northwest Semitic material available for use and citation exceeds earlier expectations; in fact, I had thought it would be possible to translate the remaining psalms with relative dispatch, frequently referring the reader to Psalms I for pertinent discussion and documentation of the principles on which the translations would be based...." - Introduction from Psalms 51-100: Introduction, Translation, And Notes

There is some bumping on the corners and the previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowed and tanned but clear of any markings. "A preface may serve various purposes. The author of the book that likely arrives for review attempts to disarm the would-be critic and his preface. He honestly sets forth the difficulties encountered in the composition of his work and candidly exposes the defects that mar the finished product. But he apparently overdoes it because one is inclined to ask, or glancing through the preface, the not impertinent question, "Then why was the book ever written?" - Preface from The Anchor Bible's Psalms I 1-50: Introduction, Translation, and Notes

"The biblical book of Chronicles is actually one book which, because of its length when translated from Hebrew into Greek, was divided into what we know as I and II Chronicles. The division into two volumes has been retained here, but the interrelatedness of the two precluded two separate introductions that would, by avoiding repetition, tend to mislead the reader into thinking that I and II Chronicles or two distinct works...." - Translator's Note from The Anchor Bible's II Chronicles: Introduction, Translation, And Notes

In Deut.17.18 I this translation The Hebrew word for 'copy' was mistakenly understood in the sense of 'second law' ( beside the law of Sinai). Methodical scholarly research into this book could begin only when it was approved conclusively by De Wette (1805) That this part of the printer to she must be considered on its own inform delivery point of you and has nothing to do with the great sources of the Pentateuch, Yahwist, the Elohist and Priestly Documents. As a result of the critical analysis of the sources a number of important facts may be recognized...." - Introduction from The Old Testament Library's Deuteronomy: A Commentary

The corners are bumped considerably on the cover boards. The previous owners name is written on the front end page of the book. The pages are yellowing but clear of any markings. "Like my commentary on the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, which appeared three years ago, the present treatment of the books of Samuel is concerned to examine and expand the material not only with regard to its individual details, but also with regard to its place within the whole book, and, where possible, with regard to its place within Holy Scripture. This seems to me to be a standpoint of which, at a time of predominately literary-critical work on the Old Testament, has been too much neglected, understandable though this neglect may be, and one which should now come into its own, particularly in a series like the Altes Testament Deutsch...." - Preface To The First German Tradition from I and II Samuel: A Commentary

"This commentary follows a consistent course in the critical approach which it adopts. Over a decade I have arrived at the view which differs fundamentally from previous literary assessments of the book of Isaiah. My understanding of the so-called memorial of the prophet Isaiah on his activity at the time of the Syro-Ephraimite war (6.1-9.6) is fundamental in this respect. Once one allows that this is a composition aimed at coming to terms with the exile in the sixth century, the rest follows almost automatically. Perhaps, therefore, I may be excused for having paid special attention to the elucidation of these chapters...." - Preface from The Old Testament Library's Isaiah 1-12: A Commentary

The previous owners name is affixed to the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowing but clear of any markings. "Anyone trying to discern the plan underlying the structure the second and larger half of the book of Isaiah must stand back and survey it as a whole. Otherwise he will lose his way in the details, the considerable number of problems of literary criticism which occur, and the apparent stumbling blocks, if not contradictions, in the composition. Such a survey must accept, as an established conclusion of scholarship, that the previous history of two blocks of tradition, chs. 24-27 and 36-39, is distinct and separate...." - In Place of a Preface from The Old Testament Library's Isaiah 13-39: A Commentary

And attempt has been made to mark off different stages in the prophet's work (Begrich), but this remains very doubtful...." - Introduction from The Old Testament Library's Isaiah 40-66: A Commentary

"How should nigger be defined? Is it a part of the American cultural inheritance that warrants preservation? Why does Knigge generate such powerful reactions? Is it a more hurtful racial epithet than insults such as kike, wop, wetback, mick, chink, and gook? Am I wrongfully offending the sensibilities of readers right now by spelling out nigger instead of using a euphemism such as N-word? Should blacks be able to use nigger in ways forbidden to others?" - Chapter One: The Protean N-Word from Nigger

There is no bumping or fraying on the covers, however, there are bent edges on the covers and pages. The pages are crisp, white, and clear of any markings. "Typically, "the liturgical year" calls to mind only the Christian calendar of Sundays and feasts that, instead of beginning on January 1 and ending December 31st, goes from the first Sunday of Advent to the Saturday at the end of the thirty-fourth week of Ordinary Time. This deviation from the common secular calendar does not create a real problem. One reason is that we are used to other, similar deviations, particularly those of the school year. Another is that Christmas is the only date one needs to know in order to determine the date of the first of the four Sundays of Advent. However, this first, superficial picture of a simple, annual schedule of Christian celebrations is not enough to fully appreciate the profound reality of the liturgical year and all its values. We must begin, therefore, with a certain understanding of time...." - Chapter One from Days of the Lord: The Liturgical Year - Volume 1: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are slightly yellowed and the pages are clear of any markings. "This book has its source in the direct suggestion that comes from a previous notable work. In 1940, William Temple, Archbishop of York and afterward Archbishop of Canterbury, published his Readings in St. John's Gospel. In the first paragraph of that work he wrote: This book is not a systematic commentary or exposition; nor is it intended for scholars or theologians-though whatever value it has for souls on pilgrimage may be as real for them as for others. Again, it is not a series of devotional meditations, though it contains some of these. It has no distinctive and consistent character. But it is an attempt to share with any who read it what I find to be my own thoughts as I read the profoundest of all writings...." - Introduction from The Compassionate Christ: Reflections from the Gospel of Luke
