The essays in this volume address the conundrum of how Jewish believers in the divine character of the Sinaitic revelation confront the essential questions raised by academic biblical studies. The first part is an anthology of rabbinic sources, from the medieval period to the present, treating questions that reflect a critical awareness of the Bible. The second part is a series of twenty-one essays by contemporary rabbis and scholars on how they combine their religious beliefs with their critical approach to the Bible.

Recensioner i media

"For observant Judaism to survive biblical criticism's heavy artillery it will have to further articulate the meaning of its faith claims. This will allow it to remain faithful to its traditions while maintaining a mature dialogue with contemporary modes of thought. ... The authors' sophisticated theological discourse inspires those who care about this tension to guide that debate towards the theological arena and away from the Beit Midrash. That is the arena in which orthodox creativity is most possible. The book convincingly demonstrates that retooling our theological formulations will allow orthodoxy to see these modernizing trends as complementary, not adversarial." -Rabbi Ysoscher Katz, Marginalia "The Believer and the Modern Study of the Bible is an important and accessible collection of articles. For the traditional Orthodox Jew, curious about the 'modern Study of the Bible,' this is a highly recommended first work. The book also provides fascinating insights into areas of religious culture and sociology-demonstrating the varied intellectual scaffolding being constructed to bridge two disciplines that are often at odds." -David Tesler, AJL Reviews
