Revelation and the God of Israel

Norbert M Samuelson

$155.00

Hardback
Revelation and the God of Israel explores the concept of revelation as it emerges from the Hebrew Scriptures and is interpreted in Jewish philosophy and theology. The first part is a study in intellectual history that attempts to answer the question, what is the best possible understanding of revelation. The second part is a study in constructive theology and attempts to answer the question, is it reasonable to affirm belief in revelation. Here Norbert M. Samuelson focuses on the challenges given from a variety of contemporary academic disciplines, including evolutionary psychology, political ethics, analytic philosophy of religion, and source critical studies of the Bible. This important book offers a unique approach to theological questions and fresh solutions to them and will appeal to those interested in the history of philosophy, religious thought, and Judaism.

- Publisher Norbert M. Samuelson is the Harold and Jean Grossman Chair of Jewish Studies and Full Professor of Jewish Philosophy in the Religious Studies Department at Arizona State University.

- Publisher Norbert M. Samuelson asks the question: what is the most reasonable possible conception of the doctrine of 'revelation' found in the sources of the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) in the light of modern challenges from academic studies of evolutionary psychology, analytic philosophy, and biblical history? The proposed answer is drawn from his extensive knowledge of western philosophy (from ancient Greece to contemporary England and America) and Jewish intellectual history (from Maimonides to Buber and Rosenzweig). The book engages with the history of philosophy, religious thought and Judaism.
