Studying Judaism: The Critical Issues

(Hardback - May 2012)
$90.00 - Online Price

Overview

This
volume in the Studying World Religions
series is an essential guide to the study of Judaism. Clearly structured to
cover all the major areas of study, including historical foundations,
scripture, worship, society, material culture, thought and ethics, this is the
ideal study aid for those approaching Judaism for the first time.

Studying Judaism offers readers the
chance to engage with a religious tradition as a diverse, living phenomenon.
Its approach is 'critical' in two major respects: its use of the dimensional
approach to the study of religions as an interpretive framework, and its focus
on matters perceived as problematic by insider and/or outsider commentators,
such as gender, demography, geo-politics, the 'museumization' of Jewish
cultures and its impact on religion and identity. This book is the perfect
companion for the fledgling student of Judaism.
