Tanak : A Theological and Critical Introduction to the Jewish Bible, Hardback Book

Tanak : A Theological and Critical Introduction to the Jewish Bible Hardback

Description

Though "biblical theology" has long been considered a strictly Christian enterprise, Marvin A.

Sweeney here proposes a Jewish theology of the Hebrew Bible, based on the importance of Tanak as the foundation of Judaism and organized around the major components: Torah, Nevi'im (Prophets), and Kethuvim (Writings).

Sweeney finds the structuring themes of Jewish life: the constitution of the nation Israel in relation to God; the disruption of that ideal, documented by the Prophets; and the reconstitution of the nation around the Second Temple in the Writings.

Throughout he is attentive to tensions within and among the texts and the dialogical character of Israel's sacred heritage.
