Hosea

A Handbook on the Hebrew Text

In this volume, Eric J. Tully provides a foundational analysis of the text of Hosea. Hosea is distinguished by the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text. Tully's analysis is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Hebrew text that are not always addressed in standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Hosea also reflects the most up-to-date advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics—specifically, this edition relies on the methodology of generative grammar utilized in other recent volumes in this series. This handbook proves itself an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the Hebrew biblical text.

About the Author

Eric J. Tully is Associate Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Review

"Eric J. Tully walks the reader through the syntax and the grammar of Hosea from beginning to end. Tully elucidates a book whose peculiar Northern Hebrew vocabulary has long challenged scholars. This book is especially welcome because of the popularity of Hosea 1–3 and the obscurity of Hosea 4–14."—Mayer I. Gruber, Professor Emeritus, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and author of Hosea: A Textual Commentary

"This is a terrific addition to the splendid Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible series. The difficult Hebrew text of Hosea is meticulously examined using modern linguistic methods, with due attention to the history of interpretation. The attention to syntax and poetic structure in the individual units of speech is particularly illuminating."—J. Andrew Dearman, Professor of Old Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
