9780567043528: A History of the Jews and Judaism in the Second Temple Period (vol. 1): The Persian Period (539-331BCE) (The Library of Second Temple Studies)

In the first of four volumes on A History of the Jews and Judaism in the Second Temple Period, Lester Grabbe presents a comprehensive history of Yehud - the Aramaic name for Judah - during the Persian Period. Among the many crucial questions he addresses are: What are the sources for this period and how do we evaluate them? And how do we make them 'speak' to us through the fog of centuries? This first volume, Yehud: A History of the Persian Province of Judah offers the most up to date and comprehensive examination of the political and administrative structures; the society and economy; the religion, temple and cult; the developments in thought and literature; and the major political events of Judah at the time.

Review:

The so-called intertestamental period has for too long been considered the dark ages of Jewish history. In this new volume, Lester L Grabbe ... sheds much light on this perceived darkness... extensive and rigorous...thourough...The first instalment of Grabbe's ambitious four volume project is extremely rich, methodologically self-aware, and judicious in its historical judgments. One now waits with expectation for the remaining three volumes. (Paul Foster, University of Edinburgh Expository Times)

'Well documents and rich in detail, this scholarly manual forms an inventory of all current interpretations of Persian-period Judaism, and scholars will use it with much profit.'~ Review International Review of Biblical Studies, vol 51, 2004/05
