Jewish Literature Between. In this book, Nickelsburg places a number of non-canonical books into their historical setting. He begins with a brief history of the Return and the Dispersion then goes on to explain how nu-merous books came about as a response to the Dispersion, the wake of Alexander the Great, the Romans and Herod the Great, and on through the Second Revolt. Consider that the Book of Judith may tell the story of the time of Nebuchanezzar but its many parallels describe the times of Judas Maccabeus.

The book contains brief synopses and discussions on the vast majority of Jewish writings from the second temple period. Nickelsburg gathered this material on the belief that Christians either do not know this material at all, or if they do, they often use it for "background" or "contrast" purposes, rather than as the fruit of proper study and the discovery of the roots of early Jewish and Christian thought. But, as he argues, ideas are not formed in a vacuum, and the prevalent belief in much of The book contains brief synopses and discussions on the vast majority of Jewish.

Nickelsburg carefully sets a wide range of literature within the complex political and social context of the history of Israel in this period. Nickelsburg deftly introduces the primary sources and the problems of their interpretation.

Although the Hebrew Bible is the best-known text from the Jewish past, Jews wrote far more literature than the books that now constitute the Bible. A significant portion of this additional material has survived.

George W. is is a substantial first introduction to the Jewish literature of the period between the testaments.

The book is interesting in learning about events that happened between the Old and New Testaments. It tells about the political and religious events of the time.

In this book, Nickelsburg places a number of non-canonical books into their historical setting. He begins with a brief history of the Return and the Dispersion then goes on to explain how nu-merous books came about as a response to the Dispersion, the wake of Alexander the Great, the Romans and Herod the Great, and on through the Second Revolt. Consider that the Book of Judith may tell the story of the time of Nebuchanezzar but its many parallels describe the times of Judas Maccabeus. Or the DSS commentary on Habakkuk probably shows that when the Mac-cabeans tampered with the priesthood not all of Israel was solidly behind them.
For many readers Nickelsburg's _Jewish Literature_ will open up new ways to read and understand ancient Jewish writings.
