About the Author:

Shari L. Lowin, Ph.D. (2002) in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Chicago, is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Stonehill College. She researches and publishes on topics relating to intertextual Islamic-Jewish studies, focusing mainly on classical exegesis.

Review:

"This is a valuable book, and not only because of its careful and cogent reading. Lowin also discussed traditional and current theories of intertextuality in her introduction." - Reuven Firestone, in: Journal of Jewish Studies 60.1 (2009) ..".ein gelungenes Werk, das sowohl dem Spezialisten wie auch dem Laien empfohlen sei." - Alphons Teipen, in: Sehepunkte 9/7-8 (2009) ..".une source desormais incontournable de l'etude de la prophetologie en islam." - Pierre Lory, in: BCAI 23 (2009) "The essay is very important especially for the chronological reconstruction of the mutual borrowings and the accurate analysis of how certain motifs travelled from Judaism to Islam and then back [...]." - Rosanna Budelli, in: Islamochristiana 38 (2012)

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This comparative analysis examines the Islamic and Jewish exegetical narratives [hadith/qisas al-anbiya and midrash aggadah] on the early life of the forefather Abraham. It reveals how the traditions utilized one another s materials in creating and re-creating the patriarch in their own image. Each chapter examines a particular motif in Abraham s development, from the prophecy surrounding his birth to his discovery of God and polemics with pagans to his salvation in the fiery furnace of Chaldea. Indexes of the more salient rabbinic or Islamic texts follow at the end of each chapter. The work is particularly valuable for scholars of rabbinics and Islamicists alike; it challenges earlier scholarship by revealing that the Islamic and Jewish exegetical traditions were not entirely distinct traditions but were intertextually related, mutually giving and receiving ideas.
