Early Judaism: Text and Documents on Faith and Piety
Nickelsburg, George W. E. and Michael E. Stone, editors

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2009 pp. xiii + 242.2nd Edition. $32.00


Description: Jewish writings from the period of Second Temple present a rich and potentially overwhelming variety of first-hand materials. George W. E. Nickelsburg and Michael E. Stone, experts on this formative period, have updated their classic sourcebook on Jewish beliefs and practices to take into account current thinking about the sources and to include new documents, including texts from Qumran not available in the first edition, in a brilliantly organized synthesis. Included are chapters on Jewish sects and parties, the Temple and worship in it, ideals of piety and conduct, expectations concerning deliverance, judgment, and vindication, different conceptions of the agents of God's activity, and the figure of Lady Wisdom in relationship to Israel.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Judaism
