Content

This work, the first of its kind, describes all the aspects of the Bible revolution in Jewish history in the last two hundred years, as well as the emergence of the new biblical culture. 
It describes the circumstances and processes that turned Holy Scripture into the Book of Books and into the history of the biblical period and of the Jewish people.
It deals with the encounter of the Jews with modern biblical criticism, the archaeological research of the Ancient Near East, with contemporary archaeology, the Bible-Babel polemic at the start of the twentieth century, and the use of the bible as a "guide to life" in education, culture and politics.

  •     This is a comprehensive, well-documented account of higher biblical criticism, starting from its origins centuries ago, and the Jewish responses to it. One leading archeologist, a subscriber to the anti-Pentateuch consensus of modern scholarship who nevertheless responds forcibly and authoritatively the so-called "minimalists" who deny the historicity of the Old Testament, has written that the Orthodox Jews are oblivious to the issues of modern scholarship. Shavit and Eran skillfully show otherwise. Yet, one comes away with the valid impression that not enough Jewish scholars of the Bible have reacted to attacks on its historicity, that the response has been uneven, and that much of it is in Hebrew and theefore inaccessible to a broad readership.
