Description: Dedicated to prominent biblical scholar John J.

The twenty-eight contributors ó which include both seasoned scholars and rising stars in the field ó interact with Collinsís work as they engage the bookís unifying theme, focusing their efforts around five areas of scholarly inquiry that reflect the scope of Collinsís distinguished career: ∑ The Hebrew Bible and Its Reception ∑ Wisdom ∑ Apocalypticism ∑ The Dead Sea Scrolls ∑ Jews among Greeks and Romans

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