Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of reference books, which contains notes on the Old Testament. It summarizes Pentateuch and historical books, Prophets, Psalms, and Wisdom literature. Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry and Writings focuses on the poetry (Psalms, Song of Songs, Lamentations), novellas (Ruth, Esther), and wisdom literature (Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, Sirach) of the Hebrew Bible and the apocrypha. Exodus is a central book of the Old Testament, and the absence of an intelligent commentary in German for lay people has been felt by many. Fischer and his fellow Jesuit Dominik Markl present a running commentary the focus of which is on the 'end text'.

Keywords: Old Testament exegesis; Pentateuch; Prophets; wisdom literature
