Booknews
Reprint of the Ticknor and Fields original of 1980. Through nine essays on subjects ranging from ancient Near Eastern religion to medieval Jewish biblical interpretation to contemporary Jewish thought, Fishbane maintains a focus on the dialectics of text, interpretation, and culture, while engaging issues in literary, biblical, and religious studies, and intellectual history.
