Item Description...
A compelling survey of ancient Jewish history chronicles the history of Judaism from the Babylonian Captivity to the Jewish Revolt. Original.

Publishers Description
One of today's most respected scholars of biblical history and the Dead Sea Scrolls, James C. VanderKam here offers a superb new introduction to early Judaism. Based on the best, most recent archaeological research, this illustrated volume explores the history of Judaism during the Second Temple period (516 B.C.E. - 70 C.E.), describing the body of Jewish literature written during these centuries and the most important groups, institutions, and practices of the time. Particularly interesting are VanderKam's depiction of events associated with Masada and the Kokhba revolt, and his commentary on texts unearthed in places like Elephantine, Egypt, and Qumran. Written in the same accessible style as VanderKam's widely praised Dead Sea Scrolls Today, this volume provides the finest classroom introduction to early Judaism available.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Based on new information from scrolls, but not on aggadic sources  Nov 9, 2006
This book is very useful as a history of Judaism as it markedly evolved from the Biblical to the Talmudic era. VanderKam is highly conversant with the Dead Sea Scrolls and other recently un-earthed archeological material and integrates their evidence into his historical narrative. Conversly, he gives little indication of being aware of Talmudic aggadot that pertain to this historical era of Judaism's transition . For example there is not even a reference to the Mishna Avot, which is concerned with the rabbinical sages during this period of the development of Judaism.
