Deftly edited by Lamontte M. Luker (Professor of Hebrew Scriptures, Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, Columbia, South Carolina), Passion, Vitality, And Foment: The Dynamics Of Second Temple Judaism is a fascinating and informative selection of original essays by learned contributors about religious advances that occurred during the period of Judaic history commonly referred to as the post-exilic (586 B.C. to 210 C.E..) "Second Temple". From the advent of the Sabbath and synagogues to the origin of traditions and developments in spirituality, Passion, Vitality and Foment plumbs the extensive theological evolution of the Jewish faith since ancient times. Passion, Vitality, And Foment is a seminal and highly recommended contribution to Judaic Studies and Old Testament Studies supplemental reading lists and academic reference collections.
In the past, Old Testament scholars have characterized Hebrew religious practices of the postexilic period as a time of priestly legalism. Viewed in this way, the developments of this period paled in light of the First Temple period. However, as the essays in this collection demonstrate, the postexilic period was actually an age in which "it all came together," an age of robust religious vitality that gave birth to Rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity. The contributors to Passion, Vitality, and Foment focus on the range of religious advances in this time period, from the Sabbath and the synagogue to the vitality of feminine spirituality, wisdom traditions, and apocalyptic visions, all of which demonstrate the richness of Second Temple Judaism. Lamontte M. Luker is Professor of Hebrew Scriptures at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, South Carolina.Contributors: Niels-Erik A.
