Fifteen essays bring readers up-to-date and to the cutting-edge of scholarship on Early Judaism.
Taken from Eerdman’s ground breaking reference volume The Dictionary of Early Judaism, the essays comprising Early Judaism: A Comprehensive Overview prepare students and scholars for in-depth study of Judaism in the Hellenistic and Roman periods, roughly the 4th century BCE to the 2nd century CE.
The essays constitute the backbone of the Dictionary and, and are now available in this entirely separate, more economical volume.
