In this collection, renowned Judaica scholar Jacob Neusner continues his examination of the social, intellectual, and religious perspectives within formative Jewish texts. In his new translation and analysis of the rabbinic document Genesis Rabbah, Neusner explains how it affected the Jewish interpretation of creation in Genesis. His Judaism and Story documents a chapter of rabbinic tradition that explored the possibility of historical orientation by means of stories. This collection also includes Midrash as Literature, Neusner’s contribution to a debate with fellow Hebrew literature scholar James Kugel. These and other volumes in this collection provide a strong foundation for interpreting some of the most important texts in the history of Judaism.
