"Fascinating Reading" - RBL Recommends Studies on Magic and Divination in the Biblical World

Craig Evans, of Acadia Divinity School, recommends Studies on Magic and Divination in the Biblical World for anyone interested in exploring the role of magic in ancient Israel, where magical practices continued to exist even though they had been forbidden. In his words:

"The underlying impulse behind the meetings and the papers in the book is inspired by the laws against magic and divination expressed in Deut 18:9-22. Although magic was forbidden by law, it was still practiced in one form or another in the biblical period and beyond. It is within this social context of inconsistency and conflict that magic in the biblical world should be viewed. These essays make for fascinating reading. . . The editors and contributors are to be commended."

First Came Marriage Praised in RBL as "Evocative" and "Original"

Joshua Schwartz, in Review of Biblical Literature, described Marks' book as yielding important insights for the study of late antique Judaism. In his own words:

"It is impossible to do justice to the scope and content of this book in a relatively short review. There is wealth of information and new and fascinating readings on much of it. The presentation of the material is evocative and original and provides important insights into the study of the ancient Jewish marriage and ritual. . . [Marks] skillfully navigates between ritual and history, and her work is an important contribution not only to the study of weddings and betrothals in ancient Jewish society and the world of the rabbis but also to the study of ancient Judaism in general."

You can read the rest of the review here.

First Came Marriage
ISBN 978-1-59333-585-4, $95 (Yours Today for Only $85.50)

Ritual and historical perspectives each provide only a partial view of early Jewish weddings. Combining these approaches allows for a new look at practices rejected or highlighted by early rabbis and their successors, and First Came Marriage: The Rabbinic Appropriation of Early Jewish Wedding Ritual investigates the process by which early Jews married and the various moves they used to minimize, elaborate or codify these practices.
