In this volume, Robert D. Holmstedt, John A. Cook, and Phillip S. Marshall provide a foundational analysis of the Hebrew text of Qoheleth. Distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text, Qoheleth is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Hebrew text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Qoheleth also reflects the most recent advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics. By filling the gap between popular and technical commentaries, the handbook becomes an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.

"This handbook is an invaluable aid to anyone working closely and critically with the Hebrew text.” 

—John R. Barker, The Bible Today

"Qoheleth is no mere analytical key; it is a linguistic commentary which explains and elucidates the Hebrew text in order to provide a solid foundation for exegetical work and theological reflection." 

—Eric J. Tully, Books at a Glance

"Hebrew exegesis students will love the extensive grammatical, morphological, and exegetical assistance they will receive for every verse, phrase, and word of Qoheleth. If you are looking for assistance about questions related to grammar and translation, you will find in Qoheleth a treasure trove within the parameters of the exegetical status quo."

—Susanne Scholz, Professor of Old Testament, Southern Methodist University
