Review "This exhaustive survey of the Hebrew Bible is based on the most current scholarship. Drawing on a remarkable breadth of knowledge, Sweeney describes the historical setting of the biblical books from a Jewish theological perspective." --Frederick E. Greenspahn, Gimelstob Eminent Scholar in Judaic Studies, Florida Atlantic University

"In Tanak one of the most learned biblical scholars of our time offers a highly intelligent, intellectually honest, and readable introduction to the Jewish Bible. Among its many strengths is its capacity to locate that set of books within the world of its composition without losing sight of its foundational role in the Jewish tradition and the deeper theological issues at stake. I highly recommend Tanak to general readers, scholars, students, and clergy alike." --Jon D. Levenson, Albert A. List Professor of Jewish Studies, Harvard University
