    1. One of the most authoritative volume in the field, Tov's contribution is a must read for any graduate/advanced OT student as well as (very) serious readers of the Old Testament. “Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible” is technical -although not as much as some would have expected- and assumes that the reader already has some knowledge of the field. Nevertheless, it remains fairly accessible.Tov follows the mainstream view by affirming a preference for the Massoretic text and the existence of [...]



    2. Reading "Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible" by Emanuel Tov was both a joy and a challenge. I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in the world of the Hebrew Bible. Ancient manuscripts, Dead Sea Scroll finds, ancient versions, textual variants — all of these things stir the Bible-geek in me. At the same time, the state of current scholarship with regard to the Old Testament text can be a bit troubling to an evangelical Christian.

    3. This is a fabulous book. I wish I had read it as an undergraduate, however it was published 11 years after I graduated.

    4. A must-read for students of the Tanakh/Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. The data provided is astounding and the newest version is incredibly up-to-date. Truly, anyone attempting to comment on the text should check here first--after all, if you don't know what the text says, there's no way you'll accurately represent it. Those who teach/preach from the last half of Mark 16 should take heed. The only thing holding this book back from a solid 5 star rating is its horrible layout. While I understand the [...]


    5. Fantastic book both for its being approachable and for the immense scope it manages to cover. Each section of each chapter has an extensive bibliography of major secondary works on that particular topic, enabling further research. The tone is even-handed and cautious, without being afraid to advocate for a position once the field has been laid out. That means that, in addition to being a tremendous introduction to the field (e.g. this works as a textbook), this is also a great work of scholarshi [...]
