Item Description...

The Poetics of Biblical Narrative, Sternberg's last book, established a new level of sophistication for biblical analysis. In Hebrews between Cultures, he shifts his focus from individual identity to the group, in this case the Hebrews. Sternberg's analysis of the development in the Bible of the Hebrew identity (and alternate identities) is brilliant, challenging, intellectually rigorous and unusual, and almost always unexpected and dramatic.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a masterwork from someone who truly knows how to read  Aug 17, 2006
I have been a huge admirer of Meir Sternberg's work since I first read his "The Poetics of Biblical Narrative" in the early 90s. Sternberg is a professor of literature who has spent an enormous amount of effort trying to clarify people's assumptions about the seemingly commonplace yet astoundingly complex process of reading. In "Poetics," he broke new ground in teaching biblical scholars how to read the Bible as literature not on the basis of 19th or 20th century principles of literary criticism, but on the basis of the Bible's own internal poetics.

With "Hebrews," Sternberg took on a related task: exploring the presuppositions or half-considered assumptions of scholars and other writers who seek to place the biblical Israelites within the cultural contexts of their times. He engages this task through the lens of the single term, "Hebrew." Rarely have I been as thoroughly challenged to think clearly and carefully as when reading this mammoth book!

Sternberg's prose is not for everyone. It is thick, complex and can, for some, seem maddeningly idiosyncratic. Yet for those willing to discover how his prose is designed as a precision tool and not as mere embellishment, Sternberg can be experienced as a fascinating writer unlike any other.

Don't expect to pick up this book and breeze through it. Rather, savor it, consider it, let its questions, analyses and provocative suggestions challenge and transform you.
