9780199284207: Biblical Myth and Rabbinic Mythmaking
Críticas:

In sum, this volume provides close and careful examinations of a rich variety of texts, thoughtful summaries of what may be concludedwith regard to each type of literature, two innovative appendices, and a number of detailed indexes. The author combines a broad knowledge of religious phenomenology, the theory of myth, and the classical and Christian traditions with a specialized, masterly, and detailed understanding of biblical, rabbinic, and kabbalistic texts and traditions. He presents the reader with a vast amount of text to absorb and an extensive number of interpretations and conclusions on which to reflect. ( Stefan C Reif, The Journal of Theological Studies)

Fishbane is one of those scholars best qualified to tackle a topic that covers nearly two thousand years of religous and literary history and he does not here shirk any aspects of the indomitable challenge that such a task represents...a work of sound and solid scholarship. Its interpretations and conclusions will long remain the subject of much discussion...truly outstanding and exceptionally important piece of research. ( Stfan C Reif, The Journal of Theological Studies)

a comprehensive study...a work of major significance for biblical and jewish studies. ( Peter Hayman, The Expository Times)

Reseña del editor:

A comprehensive and systematic exploration of myth in the Hebrew Bible. In addition, Michael Fishbane examines the ongoing role of Scripture in the expansion and transformation of myth in ancient Jewish sources (Midrash and Talmud) and in the classical work of medieval Jewish mysticism (the book of 'Zohar'). The role of myth and monotheism is taken up, and the texts of myth are subjected to close analytical treatment, dealing with matters of form, theme, and theology. In particular, the creative role of exegesis, and its capacity to generate new myths and to justify older or pre-existent ones, is explored. Aspects of continuity and discontinuity with biblical and ancient Near Eastern sources are examined, and the explosive innovations of myth in the various literary phases are considered. In exploring three major phases of Jewish culture, Michael Fishbane offers a new appreciation for the reality of myth and its varieties. Many new conceptual and analytical categories are presented, as well as numerous close readings of the texts at hand.
