In this volume of collected papers, acknowledged authorities in Jewish Studies mark the milestones in the development of the Jewish religion from ancient times up to the present. They also take full account of the interactions between Judaism and its ancient and Christian environment. The renowned Viennese scholar Günter Stemberger is honoured with this festschrift on the occasion of his 65th birthday.
"[...] there is no doubt that most outstanding experts in the field of Jewish Studies have contributed to honour Günter Stemberger. The volume offers an excellent overview of all fields of Jewish Studies nowadays and their divergent methodological approaches."P. C. Beentjes in: Nederlands theoloigisch Tijdschrift 2/2007
