Isaiah chapters 6-12 are overflowing with prediction, containing some of the most famous references in the Old Testament to the coming Messiah. Covering a time in Judah's history when it was being attacked and threatened on all sides, each chapter is full of rich biblical truths, revealing the character of Yahweh and His plan for His children. Although the remnant of His people would be reduced to a stump, a shoot would come forth - Immanuel, God with us.

In this comprehensive and thought-provoking study, Terence Fretheim focuses on the theme of divine suffering, an aspect of our understanding of God which both the church and scholarship have neglected. Maintaining that "metaphors matter," Fretheim carefully examines the ruling and anthropomorphic metaphors of the Old Testament and discusses them in the context of current biblical-theological scholarship. His aim is to broaden our understanding of the God of the Old Testament by showing that "suffering belongs to the person and purpose of God".

    Synopsis: Evangelical and feminist approaches to Old Testament interpretation often seem to be at odds with each other. The authors of this volume argue to the contrary: feminist and evangelical interpreters of the Old Testament can enter into a constructive dialogue that will be fruitful to both parties. They seek to illustrate this with reference to a number of texts and issues relevant to feminist Old Testament interpretation from an explicitly evangelical point of view. In so doing they raise issues that need to be addressed by both evangelical and feminist interpreters of the Old Testament, and present an invitation to faithful and fruitful reading of these portions of Scripture. Endorsements: "Anyone who thinks that an 'evangelical feminist' is an impossibility--and especially an evangelical feminist who affirms the importance of the Old Testament--will need to engage with these thoughtful essays. Taking seriously the twin challenges of biblical authority and contemporary feminism, these essays not only chart a way through contested texts with clarity, they also model a way ahead for evangelical feminism that is truly inclusive." -David G. Firth St. John's College, Nottingham "Tamar's Tears is a stimulating and engaging collection of essays, which hits all the hot-button OT passages for both feminist and evangelical hermeneutics. The commitment to engage rather than combat is not only refreshing but necessary at a time when many evangelicals are looking for more compelling paradigms for gender relations. This book moves the conversation forward." -Peter Enns Independent Scholar and Writer "Tamar's Tears provides excellent examples of interacting with, learning from, and critiquing differing positions. Readers will find consistently good scholarship, integrity, and a love for and trust in the Bible as God's Word. No reader, whatever their starting perspective, will agree, or for that matter disagree, with everything here, but all will be stimulated and challenged to look again and think again about what the Bible (and feminist theology) actually says." -Mary Evans London School of Theology Author Biography: Andrew Sloane is Lecturer in Old Testament and Christian Thought at Morling College (affiliated with the Australian College of Theology). He is author of At Home in a Strange Land: Using the Old Testament in Christian Ethics and On Being a Christian in the Academy: Nicholas Wolterstorff and the Practice of Christian Scholarship.

    The value and significance of the targums--translations of the Hebrew Bible into Aramaic, the language of Palestinian Jews for centuries following the Babylonian Exile--lie in their approach to translation: within a typically literal rendering of a text, they incorporate extensive exegetical material, additions, and paraphrases. These alterations reveal important information about Second Temple Judaism, its interpretation of its bible, and its beliefs.


    This remarkable survey introduces critical knowledge and insights that have emerged over the past forty years, including targum manuscripts discovered this century and targums known in Aramaic but only recently translated into English. Prolific scholars Flesher and Chilton guide readers in understanding the development of the targums, their relationship to the Hebrew Bible, their dates, their language, their place in the history of Christianity and Judaism, and their theologies and methods of interpretation.

    Since its initial publication, Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible has established itself as the indispensable authoritative textbook and reference on the subject. In this thoroughly revised third edition, Emanuel Tov has incorporated the insights of the last ten years of scholarship, including new perspectives on the biblical texts among the Dead Sea Scrolls, all of which have now been published. Here are expanded discussions of the contribution of textual criticism to biblical exegesis and of the role of scribes in the transmission of the text. The introduction and references throughout the book have been thoroughly revised with the beginning student of textual criticism in mind.
