Product Description

The non-canonical literature of early Judaism, writings from the time between the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament (300 BCE - 200 CE) that have been lost, forgotten, and rediscovered, are the subject of ever increasing scholarly attention for biblical studies, Christian and Jewish Theology, and have shown to be exceptionaly relevant to the churches proclamation of the Gospel.

In Early Judaism and Modern Culture Gerbern Oegema explores these literary and religious works from a theological perspective, reviewing their reception throughout the course of religious history.

He demonstrates decisively that these books - more than merely objects of academic curiosity - have real theological and cultural relevance for today's churches, synagogues, and society as a whole.

Endorsements

James H. Charlesworth
-Princeton Theological Seminary
Through engaging words, Gerbern Oegema invites his readers to appreciate the vibrant and advanced world of the early Jews and how they have left us insights and visions for modern culture.

John J. Collins
-Yale Divinity School
In an era when biblical theology is commonly approached from a narrow canonical perspective, Oegema's demonstration of the theological and historical significance of the noncanonical writings of ancient Judaism is refreshing and important.
