Sacred Writings

  • The Bible's Many Voicesby Michael Carasik

    JPS 2014; US$ 31.95

    The most common English translations of the Bible often sound like a single, somewhat archaic voice. In fact, the Bible is made up of many separate books composed by multiple writers in a wide range of styles and perspectives. It is, as Michael Carasik demonstrates, not a remote text reserved for churches and synagogues but rather a human document... more...

  • The Watchers in Jewish and Christian Traditionsby Angela Kim Harkins; Kelley Coblentz Bautch

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 28.99

    At the origin of the Watchers tradition is the single enigmatic reference in Genesis 6 to the "sons of God" who had intercourse with human women, producing a race of giants upon the earth. That verse sparked an explosion of cosmological and theological speculation in early Judaism. Here leading scholars explore the contours of the Watchers traditions... more...

  • Family and Kinship in the Deuterocanonical and Cognate Literatureby Angelo Passaro

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 168.00

    This volume discusses various conceptions of family and kinship in the context of deuterocanonical literature. After analyzing the topic family in a narrow sense of the term, the articles investigate general ideas of morality, respect, or love and take a critical look at representations of gender, power, and social norms in Judaism and Early Christianity. more...

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 196.00

The analysis develops new perspectives for... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 145.00

    One of the cornerstones of the religious Jewish experience in all its variations is Torah study, and this learning is considered a central criterion for leadership.

    Hamilton Books 2013; US$ 38.99
