The School Tradition of the Old Testament: The Bampton Lectures for 1994

Synopsis

Heaton shows how the books of the Old Testament, far from being remote and 'primitive' as is often thought, were in fact written by learned men, educated in the traditional schools of ancient Israel. He presents an enlivening case for the strong influence which this schooling must have had on the writers of the stories, poetry and proverbs of the Bible.
