    BRILL 2001; US$ 60.00

  • The Biblical View of Manby Leo Adler; Daniel R. Schwartz; Shimon Gesundheit

    Urim Publications 2015; US$ 7.99

    The Biblical View of Man argues cogently that the Bible is more about human beings than about God and insists that, in the biblical view, what human beings need is not so much wisdom or grace but rather their own free will to fulfill the obligations that a loving God has bestowed upon them in order to allow them to prove and improve themselves.... more...

  • The Despoliation of Egyptby Joel S. Allen

    BRILL 2008; US$ 155.00

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...
