Despite its deceptively simple title, this book ponders the thorny issue of the place of the Bible in Jewish religion and culture. By thoroughly examining the complex link that the Jews have formed with the Bible, Jewish scholar Jean-Christophe Attias raises the uncomfortable question of whether it is still relevant for them. Jews and the Bible... more...

The Mythic Mind follows the tradition of works which insist on the necessity for a comparative dimension in the study of ancient Israel. The Israelite world-view was essentially a West Semitic world-view in origin, with additional deeply embedded influences from Egypt and Mesopotamia, though it produced its own distinctive character by way of synthesis... more...

Die theologische Beschäftigung mit Psalmen und Psalter kann sich nicht auf die Erarbeitung von Sachaussagen, Themen und Konzepten beschränken. Spiritualität ist insofern genuines Anliegen, als der Psalter Menschen ins Gespräch mit Gott, das von der Klage bis zum Lob reicht, einbeziehen und zugleich Wegleitung geben will. Die Einzigartigkeit des Psalmenbuchs... more...
