“If I Forget You, Jerusalem!” and Other Studies on the Biblical World

ID: 3226 - View Book Page - Edit In OJS

This selection of articles – never published in English before – reflects the author's position that the basic realization of minimalism has always been evident: that the Old Testament is not – exclusively – a book about history but is dominated by interests in theology both as literature and as an expression of the community in which biblical writings originated. It is a companion volume to his 2022 book Back to Reason: Minimalism in Biblical Studies and both gives an impression of the progress of biblical studies over the last generation or two but also presents a series of new ideas about subjects such as cultural memory, the redaction of Psalms, the importance of prophetic literature also for Christian theology and much more.
