The academic series particularly encourages the use of interdisciplinary approaches and creative thinking. HEBREW, JEWISH, AND EARLY CHRISTIAN STUDIES: ACADEMIC ESSAYS by Heerak Christian Kim contains 6 academic papers. The academic papers represent fruits of academic research conducted in a period of 10 years in three countries in three continents: Israel, United States, and United Kingdom. The research was conducted under the auspices of some of the world most prestigious fellowships, such as the Lady Davis Fellowship and the Raoul Wallenberg Scholarship. Heerak Christian Kim researched with some of the world's greatest minds - at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Cambridge University, and America's Ivy League universities. Some of the papers in the collection were delivered before an academic audience in important academic conferences (Society of Biblical Literature, British New Testament Conference, and American Schools of Oriental Research) and represent cutting-edge research in the respective field. The essays show erudition. But more importantly, some of the creative ideas contained in the book represent potentially a strong force of change in methodology and academic consensus in the area of Hebrew, Jewish, and Early Christian studies.
