Featured eBook

Homer and the Bible in the Eyes of Ancient Interpreters - Maren Niehoff
ISBN: 9789004226111
Publication Date: 2012
Thus far intepretations of Homer and the Bible have largely been studied in isolation even though both texts became foundational for Western civilization and were often commented upon in the same cultural context. The present collection of articles redresses this imbalance by bringing together scholars from different fields and offering prioneering essays, which cross traditional boundaries and interpret Biblical and Homeric interpreters in light of each other.

Deborah's Daughters - Joy A. Schroeder
Call Number: BS580 .D4 S37 2014
ISBN: 0199991049
Publication Date: 2014
Schroeder shows how Deborah's story has fueled gender debates throughout history. An examination of the prophetess's journey through nearly two thousand years of Jewish and Christian interpretation shows how the biblical account of Deborah was deployed against women, for women, and by women who aspired to leadership roles in church and society.

Dangerous Sisters of the Hebrew Bible - Amy Kalmanofsky
Call Number: BS579 .S57 K35 2014
ISBN: 1451469950
Publication Date: 2014
Fathers, sons, and mothers take center stage in the Bible’s grand narratives, Kalmanofsky observes. Sisters and sisterhood receive less attention in scholarship but, she argues, play an important role in narratives, revealing anxieties related to desire, agency, and solidarity among women playing out (and playing against) their roles in a patrilineal society. Most often, she shows, sisters are destabilizing figures in narratives about family crisis, where property, patrimony, and the resilience of community boundaries are at risk. Kalmanofsky demonstrates that the particular role of sisters had important narrative effects, revealing previously underappreciated dynamics in Israelite society.

The Land Between the Two Rivers - Thomas Petter
Call Number: DS153.3 .P49 2014
ISBN: 1575062917
Publication Date: 2014
The Old Testament tells us that Yahweh led the Hebrews into the land of Canaan and commanded them to drive its indigenous inhabitants out and settle in their place. This account has often served as justification for the possession of the land by the modern state of Israel. Archaeology is a "weapon" in the debate, used by both Israelis and Palestinians trying to write each other out of the historical narrative. This book provides needed background for the issues and will be of interest to those concerned with the complexity of Arab-Israeli relations.
