Description

Sacred Enigmas assesses the religious and intellectual significance of the Hebrew Bible both as a document of its time and as an important step in the development of thought. It presents the major aspects of biblical religion through detailed literary analyses of key texts, presented in English translation to make them accessible to the general reader as well as scholars. Each of the central traditions of biblical religion is examined - covenantal cultic, wisdom and prophetic - as well as a number of important themes, like the roles of mystery and sexuality. At the same time, the cultural and social background is explained and described, placing the ideas uncovered in a specific temporal and cultural setting. Stephen A Geller offers the reader a unique approach to reading the Hebrew Bible, by integrating literature, religion and history.
