The Hebrew God : portrait of an ancient deity by Bernhard Lang( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally worshiped by the people of a small and politically insignificant eastern Mediterranean community, the Hebrew God rose to become the monotheistic deity of the entire Western tradition. Indeed, the God of Israel ranks as the most distinguished deity in human history. In this absorbing book, well-known biblical scholar Bernhard Lang provides for the first time a full portrait of the ancient Hebrew God. Drawing on all available evidence, including ancient Near Eastern and Egyptian texts and art, Lang offers a comprehensive view of the Hebrew God that is both fascinating and surprising."--BOOK JACKET

Joseph in Egypt : a cultural icon from Grotius to Goethe by Bernhard Lang( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The biblical story of Joseph ranks in the history of world literature alongside The Odyssey and other ancient legends as a seminal canonical text and has provided rich material for later writers to imitate and elaborate. This book, by Bernard Lang, an internationally acclaimed biblical scholar, examines the many and varied ways that the story of Joseph has been interpreted in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. During that time, Joseph was heralded as an icon by many different writers and thinkers, among them Henry Fielding, Voltaire, Chateaubriand, and Goethe. Educators commended Joseph as a model of piety, moralists extolled him in defense of chastity, and political philosophers regarded him as an exemplary leader; historians debated variously whether he was a benefactor, tyrant, or merely a character in a well-told ancient oriental tale. Lang examines a range of texts - novels, stage plays, poems, children's books, and critical treatises - to illuminate the debt each owes to earlier versions of the Joseph story."--Jacket
