A Land Like Your Own
Traditions of Israel and Their Reception
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This collection of essays originated in two conferences organized by graduate students of the School of Religions and Theology at Trinity College Dublin. Young scholars from Ireland, Britain, and the United States, working in the areas of Biblical and Near Eastern Studies, share their insights on a range of quite diverse topics. These have been skillfully brought together by the editors, employing the symbol of the 'Land' as indicative of both loss and hope, reflective of the ways in which the past is variously figured and re-configured by the authors of both Testaments. They are to be congratulated for their initiative in organizing the conferences and applauded for making their deliberations accessible to a wider audience. This collection is a testimony to the ways in which modern Biblical Studies can stimulate new generations of scholars to engage with the Classic texts from the past in a manner that also reflects their own time and place."
