Part of the Century series – each book reviews and summarises the key developments in a particular branch of religious studies during the past century.

With a balance of scholarship and readability, Professor Clements offers both the student and the general reader alike an account of the main lines of Old Testament interpretation over the last hundred years. He focuses on the work of a few scholars whose contributions appear to him to have been particularly significant and interesting, and shows some of the interconnections between them. With each chapter the treatment is broadly chronological.


1. Introduction
2. Interpreting the Pentateuch
3. Interpreting the Historical Books
4. Interpreting the Prophets
5. Interpreting the Psalms
6. Interpreting the Wisdom Literature
7. Interpreting Old Testament Theology
8. Retrospect and Prospect
