Description: A Land Like Your Own explores the ways the Bible has reused previous traditions and has subsequently been reused by both Jews and Christians. The ten essays included cover a broad range of topics in the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and subsequent traditions, but they all highlight the many ways in which the traditions associated with Israel have impacted communities. A Land Like Your Own will interest anyone involved in biblical studies (students and scholars alike) through its wide-ranging array of topics, highlighting how interconnected the many biblical studies subdisciplines truly are. Endorsements: ""This collection of essays originated in two conferences organized by graduate students of the School of Religions and Theology at Trinity College Dublin. Young scholars from Ireland, Britain, and the United States, working in the areas of Biblical and Near Eastern Studies, share their insights on a range of quite diverse topics. These have been skillfully brought together by the editors, employing the symbol of the 'Land' as indicative of both loss and hope, reflective of the ways in which the past is variously figured and re-configured by the authors of both Testaments. They are to be congratulated for their initiative in organizing the conferences and applauded for making their deliberations accessible to a wider audience. This collection is a testimony to the ways in which modern Biblical Studies can stimulate new generations of scholars to engage with the Classic texts from the past in a manner that also reflects their own time and place."" --Sean Freyne Professor of Theology, Emeritus Trinity College, Dublin About the Contributor(s): Jason M.
