Yet this book has managed to be in print for decades and it is on its third edition. In reading this book there were some great takeaways while there were also some parts of the book that raised some concerns.

Good: - The book convincingly made the argument that the Jews tend to pursue the political stance of accommodation with Gentile rulers rather than rebellion with only four exceptional instances. Second Temple Judaism supplemented the temple with the synagogue and the priest with scribes who were learned teachers. He also caution that sectarianism is not the same thing as mere diversity. These are helpful pointers for further study! For instance on location the author does not think history can answer the question of whether or not Christianity is the fulfillment of the Old Testament.

Why not? If Christianity is a religion with historical claims and the Old Testament also makes future historical claims the authors claim is problematic. For instance in location Cohen assumes Ecclesiastes was a product of the Hellenistic period rather than Solomonic in origins.

Cohen also assume the existence of more than one Isaiah. Moments like these in the book took away from the books strength. I suppose if there is any value in it, it is a concise summary of a liberal perspective on the Canon. Conclusion I do recommend this book but also caution it be read with Christian discernment and maturity. All opinions offered above are mine unless otherwise stated or implied.
