Wisdom Texts from Qumran by Daniel J. Harrington, SJ

Book Description

This study is the first full analysis of the Qumran wisdom texts. New translations and a full explanation of the background and context of wisdom literature introduce the reader to an important and hitherto little discussed part of the Dead Sea Scrolls. After surveying biblical and extrabiblical wisdom books, the author considers the best and most fully preserved wisdom texts from Qumran. The centrepiece of the book is a discussion of the large wisdom instruction known as Sapiential Work A. Also, the author reflects on the relevance of those texts for the study of early Judaism and Christianity. An appendix treats the Ben Sira scroll from Masada.

Bible and the Believer by Daniel J. Harrington, SJ Bible and the Believer, Paperback (March 2015)

How can one read the Bible both critically and religiously? To answer that question, The Bible and the Believer enlists one Jewish, one Catholic, and one Protestant biblical scholar who explain and illustrate how to read the Hebrew Bible/Tanakh/Old Testament critically and religiously in light of their own religious traditions.

Reading the Old Testament by Daniel J. Harrington, SJ Reading the Old Testament, Paperback (September 2012)

Lawrence Boadt's Reading the Old Testament was recognized as a classic almost from its date of publication in 1984. Without in any way diminishing its famed clarity, judiciousness, and theological depth, two prominent scholars, Richard Clifford and Daniel Harrington, have brought the book into the twenty-first century.
