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.

Endorsement:
"Emanuel Tov is preeminent in the world in the field of Septuagint studies. This is a solid and durable work which, given its technical character, is written in a readable way."
—Frank Moore Cross, Harvard University

Years ago I purchased Emanuel Tov's Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible (2nd edition). I could not put it down and devoured the 456 page book and there is hardly a page where I did not underline or get excited about something that Emanuel Tov had to say. Emanuel Tov is the Judah Leon Magnes Professor of Bible at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Emanuel Tov well says about textual criticism: “This procedure is subjective as subjective can be … In modern times, scholars are often reluctant to admit the subjective nature of textual evaluation, so that an attempt is often made, conscious or unconscious, to create a level of artificial objectivity by the frequent application of abstract rules” (2nd Edition, p. 310). Elsewhere he notes that “textual traditions have all been influenced by abstract assumptions and prejudices” (2nd Edition, p. 181). Tov speaks extensively about textual corruptions, false conclusions, dogmatic approaches, subjective opinions and the like. Much scholarship ...

Elsewhere he notes that “textual traditions have all been influenced by abstract assumptions and prejudices” (2nd Edition, p. 181). Tov speaks extensively about textual corruptions, false conclusions, dogmatic approaches, subjective opinions and the like. Much scholarship is affected by personal opinion. I believe that we must read Scripture with the help of the Spirit. But anyway, there are excellent chapters covering a large amount of material including Textual Witnesses of the Bible, The History of Biblical Text, The Copying and Transmitting of the Biblical Text, The Aim and Procedures of Textual Criticism, The Evaluation of Readings, Textual Criticism and Literary Criticism (the old lower and higher criticism), Conjectural Emendation and Critical Editions. I am anxious to purchase the 3rd edition but I have Accordance 10.xx and it requires 11.1 or higher. --Gregorio Billikopf, Llanquihue, Chile
