Alan T. Levenson is the Schusterman/Josey Professor of Jewish Intellectual and Religious History at University of Oklahoma. He is the author of several books, includingModern Jewish Thinkers: An Introduction, The Story of Joseph: A Journey of Jewish Interpretation, andBetween Philosemitism and Antisemitism. Defenses of Jews & Judaism in Germany, 1871-1932.
The Making of the Modern Jewish Bible explains how Jewish translators, commentators, and scholars made the Bible a keystone of Jewish life in Germany, Israel and America. In each site, a particular need—religion, nationalism, ethnicity—drove the enterprise of Bible study as scholars wrestled with the demands of the non-Jewish environment and their own indigenous traditions. Contrary to popular conceptions, the author argues that the modern period has been the golden age of Jewish Bible study.
