Chapter Summary

The volumes of The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha (OTP) 1-2 and The Apocryphal Old Testament have been reviewed, individually or in combinations, in part or in whole, in various publications by various scholars with various insights, commendations and complaints. There is general consensus that the diverse reading publics, whether specialists or generalists or somewhere in between, have profited from the appearance of these works, whatever the shortcomings. The scholarly "texture" in these two volumes - especially in volume 1 - is very uneven, ranging from very very high quality to relatively embarrassing. James H. Charlesworth wants his volumes to be received in a broadly ecumenical context, "for the scholar and for the interested non-specialist," and "without confessional bias".

Keywords: James H. Charlesworth; Old Testament Pseudepigrapha (OTP) 1-2; The Apocryphal Old Testament
