To This Very Day: Fundamental Questions in the Bible Study by Amnon Bazak
In recent generations, there has been a renaissance of Tanakh study among Jewry in general, and in the study halls of the Religious-Zionist community in particular. This return to in-depth study of the plain text has brought with it new challenges. How should one respond to the complex questions raised by close textual reading, by new methodology, and by recent discoveries? This work portrays the unique approach that has arisen in the current generation of Bible scholars, who come to Tanakh study with deep, serious belief in the holiness and divine nature of the books, on the one hand, and on the other, the understanding that new discoveries in the scholarly world need neither be rejected out of hand nor adopted in their entirety.
