Ancient Jewish and Christian Texts as Crisis Management Literature

Full Product Description

This volume seeks to demonstrate, for the first time, that many Jewish and Christian texts in the ancient world were written as a direct response to an earlier situation of crisis that affected the author, or the intended reader. Presented here are texts from both traditions that were written over many centuries in order to establish that such crisis management literature was widespread in the religious and theological literature of ancient times. These chosen works reveal that all manner of crises could contribute to the production or the nature of these texts; including persecution, political factors, religious or theological differences, social circumstances; as well as internal or external threats. By understanding this crucial element in the composition of these texts we are better able to understand the complexity of social, political and religious forces that gave rise to many ancient theological texts, and to appreciate the strategies which the authors used to manage these crises.

Ancient Jewish and Christian Texts as Crisis Management Literature by T.H. Wright was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in January 2014. The ISBN for Ancient Jewish and Christian Texts as Crisis Management Literature is 9780567022974.
