  • Hände weg!?by Joachim Kügler

    Echter Verlag 2001; US$ 8.51

    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...

  • Biblical Narrative and Palestine's Historyby Thomas L. Thompson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Modern biblical scholarship's commitment to the historical-critical method in its efforts to write a history of Israel has created the central and unavoidable problem of writing an objective and critical history of Palestine through the biblical literature with the methods of Biblical Archaeology. 'Biblical Narrative and Palestine's History' brings... more...

  • Roots of the Bibleby Friedrich Weinreb

    Verlag Friedrich Weinreb Stiftung 2014; US$ 33.99

    The great Kabbalist Friedrich Weinreb (1910 - 1988) offers the key to experiencing the Bible as our hidden life - manifesting itself in our daily life. The book deals with issues of life, of the world, of the Bible, in a way unknown up to the present. It shows that the Bible is a creation even more impressive than the creation of the universe and life.... more...

  • Argonauts of the Desertby Philippe Wajdenbaum

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    'Argonauts of the Desert' presents a revolutionary new commentary on the Bible and its origins, arguing that most biblical stories and laws were inspired by Greek literature.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    The volume brings together forty years of agenda-setting scholarship in Israelite and Judean history. The historical essays gathered here were among the first to raise serious questions about the "patriarchal age", the exodus from Egypt and the conquest of Canaan, and the temple of Solomon. The literary essays on the Pentateuch challenged both the... more...

  • The Zionist Bibleby Nur Masalha

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Throughout the history of European imperialism the grand narratives of the Bible have been used to justify settler-colonialism. "The Zionist Bible" explores the ways in which modern political Zionism and Israeli militarism have used the Bible - notably the Book of Joshua and its description of the entry of the Israelites into the Promised Land -... more...

  • Sexual Hospitality in the Hebrew Bibleby Thalia Gur-Klein

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 120.00

    A woman's life in the ancient world was constrained by her social and economic status. As a daughter she was firmly under the aegis of her father and brothers, who would later allocate the woman to another man as his wife. The power of fathers and husbands extended to using their wives and daughters as sexual gifts to gain favour. Yet, alongside this,... more...
