  • Kingship and Memory in Ancient Judahby Ian D. Wilson

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 97.99 US$ 88.19

    Kingship and Memory in Ancient Judah investigates kingship in Judean discourse, particularly in the early Second Temple era.

  • Are We Not Men?by Rhiannon Graybill

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 72.99 US$ 65.69

    Are We Not Men? offers an innovative approach to gender and embodiment in the Hebrew Bible. Graybill argues that the male body is a source of difficulty for the Hebrew prophets. This very instability of prophetic masculinity makes possible new understandings of biblical masculinity, as the prophetic body is revealed as a queer body. more...

  • Theory and Practice in Essene Lawby Aryeh Amihay

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 97.99 US$ 88.19

  • Josephby Alan T. Levenson

    The Jewish Publication Society 2016; US$ 32.95

    The complex and dramatic story of Joseph is the most sustained narrative in Genesis. Many call it a literary masterpiece and a story of great depth that can be read on many levels. In a lucid and engaging style, Alan T. Levenson brings the voices of Philo, Josephus, Midrash, and medieval commentators, as well as a wide range of modern scholars, into... more...

  • Judaismby E. P. Sanders

    Fortress Press 2016; US$ 38.99

    In this now-classic work, E. P. Sanders carefully shows that what was important in Second Temple Judaism was the ?common Judaism? of the people, their observances of regular practices, and the beliefs that informed them. Sanders offers a remarkably comprehensive presentation of Judaism as a functioning religion: the temple and its routine and festivals;... more...

  • An Ark on the Nileby Keith Bodner

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 94.99 US$ 85.49

    This work offers a literary reading of the first two chapters of the Book of Exodus, demonstrating how they anticipate the plot and themes of the rest of the book as well as repeating motifs from Genesis. It argues that Exodus 1-2 is a powerful narrative and a striking example of the artistic qualities of the Pentateuch. more...

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 202.61

    Practitioners of Biblical Hermeneutics have been a relatively neglected group of Biblical interpreters. For this reason, scholars have long desired an introductory work that documents the diversity of Biblical hermeneutic interpretation, beginning with Origen and extending to the present. For the first time, the Handbook brings together... more...
