  • Das frühe Christentum und die Stadtby Reinhard von Bendemann; Markus Tiwald

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2012; US$ 40.49

    Nach den galiläischen Anfängen ist das Christentum sehr bald zu einer städtischen Religion geworden.

Bereits Jesus bewegt sich nach Lukas stets in Städten. In der Apostelgeschichte... more...

    HauptbeschreibungTheologie / Altes Testament / Exegese Jahwe, der Gott Israels, war von Anfang bis zum Ende seiner sich im Alten Testament spiegelnden Geschichte der einzige Gott seines Volkes.

  • 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...

  • Philosophical Interpretations of the Old Testamentby Seizo Sekine; J. Randall Short

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 98.00

    This monograph challenges the extremes of faith-based theological approaches and value-free historical-critical methods by pursuing the middle path of philosophical hermeneutics. Drawing on Eastern and Western philosophy, the author proposes original interpretive solutions to the Akedah, Jeremiah and other biblical texts. Readers will also gain fresh... more...

  • Philo's Scripturesby Naomi G. Cohen

    BRILL 2007; US$ 144.00

    Philo's rare citations from the Prophets and Writings shed light on the nature of his sources, and the specific quotations from the Prophets provide evidence for the existence, already in the 1st century CE, of an important traditional Haftarah Cycle. This book provides an explanation for these citations. more...

  • The Emergence of Semantics in Four Linguistic Traditionsby Wout Jac. van Bekkum; Jan Houben; Ineke Sluiter; Kees Versteegh

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 180.00

    The aim of this study is a comparative analysis of the role of semantics in the linguistic theory of four grammatical traditions, Sanskrit, Hebrew, Greek, Arabic. If one compares the organization of linguistic theory in various grammatical traditions, it soon turns out that there are marked differences in the way they define the place of ‘semantics’... more...

  • Ancient Judaismby Irving M. Zeitlin

    Wiley 2013; US$ 39.95

    This book is a major contribution to the sociology of religion and to religious and biblical studies. Beginning from the classic work of Max Weber, the author analyses the origins of Judaism in the light of more recent scholarship. The result is a work that will become a standard point of reference in its field, and will be of great interest to the... more...

  • Hände weg!?by Joachim Kügler

    Echter Verlag 2001; US$ 10.40

    Es gibt viele Gründe, die Bibel nicht zu lesen. Wer erwartet, dass ihn ein freundlicher Erzähler am Anfang an die Hand nimmt, auf geradem Wege durch den Text begleitet und am Ende unbeschadet wieder entlässt, wird garantiert enttäuscht werden. Denen, die es gerne leicht haben, ist deshalb vom Bibellesen abzuraten; doch auch all jenen, die z.B. vor... more...
