The essays collected in this volume grew out of a symposium honoring Lou Silberman in celebration of his 80th birthday. In a manner that honors Prof. Silberman's broad and ecumenical intellectual interests, these essays explore several historical, religious, and literary themes in Jewish and Christian texts and traditions. In the creative and at times provocative essays in this volume, readers interested in ancient Israelite history and religion, Jewish and Christian origins, and Jewish thought will discover new ways to approach these topics.
