Product Description

Designed with the beginning student in mind, Susan Docherty's The Jewish Pseudepigrapha offers an introduction to the literature of the Second Temple Period—to the books that did not make it into the Bible or the Apocrypha but that remained popular among Jews and early Christians for centuries.

These writings take various forms, such as novels, poems, apocalypses, the fictional deathbed speeches of biblical characters, and even attempts to rewrite well-known parts of Scripture. The book draws out the main religious ideas of these writings and links them to both their original historical setting and to issues of concern today. While study of the Pseudepigrapha has become highly technical and difficult to comprehend for nonspecialists, Docherty offers a clear and concise introduction, based on impeccable scholarship, which opens up the fascinating literature and world of the Second Temple Period to students and lay readers alike.
