Developed By Scholars

The Society of Biblical Literature publishes books with a scholarly focus, as well as works intended to convey the finest biblical scholarship to wider audiences: students in college, university, and seminary courses; leaders in church and synagogue settings; and members of the general public interested in biblical study. The SBL focuses on the needs of biblical scholars and students by creating resources for the classroom and research and fosters the professional development of biblical scholars by creating venues for publication, enhancing editorial skills, and providing critical responses to manuscripts submitted for publication. HEB here includes three distinguished series from the SBL’s catalog: Writings from the Ancient World, currently edited by Theodore J. Lewis; Writings from the Greco-Roman World, currently edited by David Konstan and Johan C. Thom; and Ancient Israel and Its Literature, general series editor Thomas C. Römer.
