Annotated Bibliography

ALONSO-SCHOKEL, LUIS. The Inspired Word: Scripture and Tradition in the Light of Language and Literature. Translated by Francis Martin. New York: Herder & Herder, 1965. Alonso-Schokel considers the literary question at an aesthetic and hermeneutical level that falls outside the scope of our study. His understanding of the philosophy of language makes his study of major importance in future literary critical research.

BEYERLIN, WALTER. Origins and History of the Oldest Sinaitic Tra ditions. Translated by S. Rudmen. Oxford: Blackwell, 1961. This scholarly analysis of the Sinai traditions incorporated in the text of Exodus demonstrates the necessity of offering a complete literary critical analysis of each textual fragment of the text before any comprehensive tradition critical study can be made. Beyerlin's work is a major contribution in this area.

CARPENTER, J. E. The Composition of the Hexateuch. London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1902. Carpenter's work represents one of the most comprehensive attempts among non-German scholars at the turn of the century to apply historical and literary critical techniques to every unit of the Pentateuchal text. A complete listing of literary terms and phrases and their relative frequency in each of the proposed sources is appended. An elaborate theory of composition and literary growth is proposed in this significant volume.

EISSFELDT, OTTO. The Old Testament: An Introduction. Translated from the German by Peter Ackroyd. New York: Harper & Row, 1965. This monumental Old Testament introduction appeared in several German editions before being translated into English. This composition is a major exhibit of how literary and form critical techniques work together to gain a more complete analysis of the origins, growth, and composition of each of the biblical books. A comparable major introduction is that of Georg Fohrer. Introduction to the Old Testament. Initiated by Ernst Sellin. Translated from the German by David Green. Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1968.

FUNK, ROBERT. Language, Hermeneutic and the Word of God. New York: Harper & Row, 1966. While much of the material in this volume relates to New Testament interpretation, the principles of recent linguistic analysis and hermeneutical theory are integrated with an understanding of the literary critical process for all of Scripture.

KRAUS, HANS-JOACHIM. Geschichte der historisch-kritischen Erfor schung des Alten Testaments von der Reformation bis zur Gegenwart. Neukirchen: Neukirchener Verlag, 1956. The most significant analysis of the history of the historical and literary critical
