The Cambridge Companion to the Bible, 2nd edition provides in-depth
data and analysis of the production and reception of the canonical
writings of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, and also of the
apocryphal works produced by Jewish and Christian writers. Unique
among single-volume introductions, this book focuses on the
ever-changing social and cultural contexts in which the biblical
authors and their original readers lived. The authors of the first
edition were chosen for their internationally recognized expertise
in their respective fields: the history and literature of Israel;
postbiblical Judaism; biblical archaeology; and the origins and
early literature of Christianity. In this second edition, all
chapters have been updated and thoroughly revised,under the
direction of a new volume editor, Bruce D. Chilton. More than 22
new maps, 90 new photographs and a full-color section help
illustrate the book.
