Reviews - What do customers think about Scriptures, Sects, and Visions: A Profile of Judaism from Ezra to the Jewish Revolts?

Top notch...  Apr 24, 2002
This is by far the best introduction to the literature of the period noted in the book title.

Mr. Stone is editor of "Jewish Writings of the Second Temple Period : Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Qumran, Sectarian Writings, Philo, Josephus" (which I haven't found on this site).

This is an invaluable resource for anyone who is interested in the more historical or phenomenological (and, to a degree, theological, though more in the sense of the 'influence' of outside sources) approaches to the field of religious studies.

The Jewish faith is much more than the Tanakh; Christianity did not develop in a vacuum; and Islam bears in its traditions traces of a Judaism and a Christianity long hidden in the shadows.

This book unfolds some of what lies hidden underneath and within these religions.

Mr. Stone's understanding and grasp of the literature and its meaning and implications of this literature for religious studies is presented here in a concise, easily readable, manner, one that both captivates and astounds.

If one is unfamiliar with the writings of this period (or even with the very fact that there are writings from this period) and the fact that in these writings are traces of various beliefs that have impacted the developments of these religions (especially those puzzling remarks found in, for example, the book of Jude or 2 Peter in the New Testament), I can think of no better place to start.

I'm sorry the book is out print. But sometimes that which we work hardest for is that which we appreciate the most.
