  • Performing Israel's Faithby Jacob Neusner

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 34.95

    If law alone yields legalism, then religious belief, by itself, fails to create justice. In Performing Israel's Faith, Jacob Neusner shows how Jewish Halakhah (law) and Aggadah (narrative) fit together to form a robust and coherent covenant theology-one directly concerned about this world. Neusner's careful and thorough examination of several key issues... more...

  • Uniting the Dual Torahby Jacob Neusner

    Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 82.00

Neusner shows how Sifra's authors adopted a mediating position between the written Torah... more...

    The current crisis in Palestine is only the most recent manifestation of Israel's historical significance to the Jewish people.

  • Rabbi Davidby Jacob Neusner

    University Press of America 2012; US$ 32.99

    Rabbinic documents about David, progenitor of the Messiah, relay the scriptural narrative of David the king. But, he is also transformed into a sage by Rabbinic writings of late antiquity: the Mishnah, the Yerushalmi, and the Bavli. Consequently, the Rabbis? Messiah becomes a rabbi. Neusner explores this transformation in depth. more...

  • The Documentary History of Judaism and Its Recent Interpretersby Jacob Neusner

    University Press of America 2012; US$ 38.99

    Neuser has collected some of the more ambitious ventures into the documentary hypothesis of the Rabbinic canon and its current recapitulations.

  • Lost Documents of Rabbinic Judaismby Jacob Neusner

    University Press of America 2010; US$ 35.99

    Neusner assembles anomalous compositions that occur in the Mishnah, Tosefta, four Tannaite Midrashim, and Genesis Rabbah, and he further tests the uniformity of the forms that govern in a familiar chapter of the Bavli, showing that some documents do not conform to the indicative rules of rhetoric, topic, and logic. more...

    University Press of America 2011; US$ 43.99
