The history of Judaising movements has been largely ignored by historians of religion. This volume analyzes the interplay between colonialism, a Judaism not traditionally viewed as proselytising but which at certain points was struggling to heed the Prophets and become a light unto the Gentiles' and the attraction for many different peoples of the... more...

Both traditions recognize and draw theological and historical lessons from some of the same narrative sources, but this is the first comparative resource to provide interdisciplinary coverage of the history and textual sources associated with prophets and prophecy.

Wohl keine andere Volksgruppe hat, gemessen an ihrer Verbreitung, derart großen Einfluss auf das abendländische Kultur und Geistesleben wie die Juden. Worin liegt das Geheimnis?
