Opis: Revelation and Authority - Benjamin Sommer

Finalist for the 2015 National Jewish Book Award--Nahum M. Sarna Memorial Award for Scholarship At once a study of biblical theology and modern Jewish thought, this volume describes a "participatory theory of revelation" as it addresses the ways biblical authors and contemporary theologians alike understand the process of revelation and hence the authority of the law. Benjamin Sommer maintains that the Pentateuch's authors intend not only to convey God's will but to express Israel's interpretation of and response to that divine will. Thus Sommer's close readings of biblical texts bolster liberal theologies of modern Judaism, especially those of Abraham Joshua Heschel and Franz Rosenzweig. This bold view of revelation puts a premium on human agency and attests to the grandeur of a God who accomplishes a providential task through the free will of the human subjects under divine authority. Yet, even though the Pentateuch's authors hold diverse views of revelation, all of them regard the binding authority of the law as sacrosanct. Sommer's book demonstrates why a law-observant religious Jew can be open to discoveries about the Bible that seem nontraditional or even antireligious. "In uncovering the multilayered concepts of revelation in the biblical traditions Benjamin Sommer provides us the biblical roots of modern Jewish thought on revelation and its relation to authority and tradition. This is an extraordinary book in biblical criticism and in Jewish thought and above all one of its most illuminating contributions is how these two fields of inquiry enrich one another."-Moshe Halbertal, Professor of Jewish Thought and Philosophy, Hebrew University and Gruss Professor of Law, New York University School of Law -- Moshe Halbertal "This is a groundbreaking book ... one of the most original works in Jewish theology that I have read in years."-Gary A. Anderson, Hesburgh Professor of Catholic Theology, University of Notre Dame -- Gary Anderson "Benjamin Sommer's extraordinary mix of scholarly rigor, historical imagination, lucid writing and honest theological concern brilliantly illuminate every subject he touches, and this most central of subjects, revelation and authority, is no exception. With this volume he offers scholarly and general readers alike refreshingly new ways of looking at some of the oldest and yet most pressing questions, with acuity and grace."-Yehudah Mirsky, author of Rav Kook: Mystic in a Time of Revolution -- Yehudah Mirsky "[A] groundbreaking work ... Clearly written and broad in application ... an important read for Jewish laypeople, clergy, and scholars ... [and] also likely to appeal to non-Jews who want to make modern biblical scholarship relevant for believers."-Publishers Weekly (starred review) Publishers Weekly Finalist for the 2015 National Jewish Book Awards in the category of Scholarship. -- National Jewish Book Awards Jewish Book council
