This collection focuses on the Hebrew Bible, its ancient versions and textual history. These are the fields in which the late Dr Weitzman had made his name, and the volume commemorates his lifetime's work, so prematurely ended. But it also stands on its own as an authoritative statement of current research in these and closely related fields. Contributors include Edward Ullendorff, Andrew Macintosh, Robert Gordon, Hugh Williamson, Gillian Greenberg, Jan Joosten, Sebastian Brock, Michael Knibb, Philip Alexander, George Brooke and Alison Salvesen.
