At the 2014 SBL/AAR Annual Meeting, Professor John J. Collins and a group of professors discussed teaching an “Introduction to the Hebrew Bible” course. The session, sponsored by Fortress Press, is available on YouTube and via podcast.
In addition, John J. Collins discusses his book here:
“When the first edition [of Introduction to the Hebrew Bible] came out, one of the people who reviewed it was Thomas Römer. He said, ‘You know, this actually would work best for people who didn’t know anything about the subject.’ To which I said, ‘D’uh!’.”
– John J. Collins (1:15ff)
