Introduction To The Apocrypha


A Yale University Press Title

An ambitious introduction to the Apocrypha that encourages readers to reimagine what canon really means

Challenging the way Christian and non-Christian readers think about the Apocrypha, this is an ambitious introduction to the deuterocanonical texts of the Christian Old Testaments. Lawrence Wills introduces these texts in their original Jewish environment while addressing the very different roles they had in various Christian canons. Though often relegated to a lesser role, a sort of Bible-Lite, these texts deserve renewed attention, and this book shows how they hold more interest for both ancient and contemporary communities than previously thought.
