The New Cambridge History of the Bible 4 Volume Set. By James Carleton Paget, Joachim Schaper, Richard Marsden, E.Ann Matter, Euan Cameron, John Riches.

The New Cambridge History of the Bible comprises four volumes that take into account the considerable advances in scholarship made in almost all biblical disciplines during the previous forty years. The volumes respond to shifts in scholarly methods of study of the Old and New Testaments, look closely at specialized forms of interpretation, and address the new concerns of the twenty-first century. Attention is paid to biblical studies in eastern Christian, Jewish, and Islamic contexts, rendering the series of interest to students of all Abrahamic faiths. The entire New Cambridge History of the Bible offers a comprehensive account of the development of the Bible from its origins to the present day, but each volume can also be read independently, proving a substantial contribution to the scholarship of the period it covers.
