  • Maimonides for Modernsby Ira Bedzow

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 86.23

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    Judaism, as a religion and a way of life, has guided millions of lives and profoundly influenced its younger sisters, Christianity and Islam, as well as contributing major themes and norms to the liberal and humanistic traditions of the West.

    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.
