A legacy of learning : essays in honor of Jacob Neusner by Alan J Avery-Peck( )

15 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a career spanning over fifty years, the questions that Jacob Neusner has asked and the critical methodologies he has developed have shaped the way scholars have come to approach the rabbinic literature as well as the diverse manifestations of Judaism from rabbinic times until the present. The essays collected here honor that legacy illustrating an influence that is so pervasive that scholars today who engage in the critical study of Judaism and the history of religions more generally work in a laboratory that Professor Neusner created. Addressing topics in ancient and Rabbinic Judaism, the Judaic context of early Christianity, American Judaism, World religions, and the academic study of the humanities, these essays demarcate the current state of Judiac and religious studies in the academy today
The Blackwell companion to Judaism( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Companion explores the history doctrines, divisions, and contemporary condition of Judaism. It organizes and places into context the history of Judaism from ancient through modern times, identifies and expounds some of Judaism's principal doctrines, introduces the more important forms of modern and contemporary Judaism, and takes up topics of special interest in contemporary Judaic life." "The 27 contributions to this Companion and the selections in the associated Blackwell Reader in Judaism illustrate important points, with primary sources complementing the exposition. In this way, the editors talk about Judaism and let Judaism speak for itself. All the contributors, experts in their fields, address a broad audience, assuming an interest in the subject but no prior knowledge. They present introductions for any reader interested in the subject, and do not take partisan or sectarian positions." "This volume will guide those who are curious about the past and present of a vital religious tradition that has exercised influence far beyond its own community."--Jacket
