Book Overview
Transforming Literature into Scripture examines how the early textual traditions of ancient Israel - stories, laws, and rituals - were transformed into sacred writings. By comparing evidence from two key collections from antiquity the book traces the stabilisation of textual traditions in the ancient Near East towards fixed literary prototypes.
