Product Description

Fifteen essays that bring readers up-to-date and to the cutting-edge of scholarship on Early Judaism and its study.

Taken from Eerdman's ground breaking reference volume The Dictionary of Early Judaism, the essays comprising Early Judaism: A Comprehensive Overview prepare students and scholars for in-depth study of Judaism in the Hellenistic and Roman periods, roughly the 4th century BCE to the 2nd century AD. The essays constituted the backbone of the Dictionary and, and are now available in this entirely separate, more economical volume.

Features Include:
  • provides access to material needed by many scholars whose area of specialization is proximate to but not focused on the Judaism of this period
  • accessible
  • excellent for text book use
  • includes 13 annotated maps
  • images of texts, artifacts, locations

Editorial Reviews

-- John Barton in Times Literary Supplement
“I do not think there is now a better guide to early Judaism than The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism. . . . Opens a door into a fascinating and compelling world of ideas, texts, and practices.”

-- Booklist
“The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism is an outstanding reference work that not only introduces this important era but also serves as a status report for scholarly activity in this area over the past few decades.”

-- Trinity Journal
“It is difficult to overstate how impressive the volume is in terms of scope, quality of scholarship, and number of high-level contributors. . . . The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism is bound to be a classic reference text for the next generation. It is more than worth its weight in gold — which, given the bulky nature of the book, is quite considerable!”
