Revelation and the God of Israel Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Norbert M. Samuelson asks--what is the most reasonable possible conception of the doctrine of "revelation" found in the sources of the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) in the light of modern challenges from academic studies of evolutionary psychology, analytic philosophy, and biblical history? The proposed answer is drawn from his extensive knowledge of western philosophy-- from ancient Greece to contemporary England and America and Jewish intellectual history from Maimonides to Buber and Rosenzweig. The book engages with the history of philosophy, religious thought and Judaism.


Explores the concept of revelation as it emerges from the Hebrew Scriptures and is interpreted in Jewish philosophy and theology.
