The pages are clear of any markings. "There are two ways of writing a short book on a vast subject. One is the potted survey, where everyone appears in the index but very little is added about them in the text. The other is a more impressionistic approach. It is the way of a photographer, choosing certain significant images to suggest a broader scene. And it is the way best suited to the text of an illustrated book, highlighting certain moments at the price of others." - Preface from The Christians

Then in the spring of 1988, Colin James, Bishop of Winchester and Chairman of the Church of England Liturgical Commission, and Alec Graham, Bishop of Newcastle and Chairman of the Doctrine Commission, invited me to prepare a paper for the House of Bishops the various theological issues connected with baptism, including confirmation, personal renewal, and reconciliation...." - Preface from The Mystery Of Baptism: In the Anglican Tradition

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

"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 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

Is chapters by for leaders in this effort, John Burt, Arthur Vogel, William Weinhauer, and William Green document the "struggle" involved. Every one of the four dialogues discussed has had a low moment; just after consensus had seemed within reach it turned out to be illusory after all...." - Introduction from Joy in the Struggle: Personal Memoirs of Ecumenical Dialogue

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.

"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
