History, Memory, Hebrew Scriptures: A Festschrift for Ehud Ben Zvi
Wilson, Ian Douglas and Diana Edelman, editors

Winona Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 2015 pp. xiii + 474. $64.50


Description: Ehud Ben Zvi is one of the foremost scholars in the field of Hebrew Bible today. He has had a global impact both as a researcher and as a teacher, and he continues to create cutting-edge research that is helping to shape the future of the field. This volume marks his upcoming retirement from the University of Alberta and honors him and his career as a scholar and educator. Thirty-one papers written by a select group of colleagues, including several former students and a former teacher, are presented under three sub-headings: History and Historiography; Prophecy and Prophetic Books; and Methods, Observations, (Re)Readings. These categories represent the wide-ranging interests of Ehud himself and include contributions on the Bible as social memory, for which he has been a leading advocate and theorist in the past decade.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Prophetic Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Judaism, History of Religions
