Arguing with Job

Consolation and Quarrel in the Joban Dialogue
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0661-1
Arguing with Job examines the contexts and cultures of argumentation in the dialogue between Job and his friends (chaps. 4-27), especially in light of ancient Near Eastern dialogues. Alderman argues that the role of Job’s friends is not adversarial but consolatory. Job, however, refuses their counsel and shifts the framework for their exchanges to a “quarrel,” a framework for dialogue, which for Job, opens up a space for speaking about pain, suffering, and traumatic experience.

The Unremembered Dead

The Non-Burial Motif in the Hebrew Bible
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0696-3
The Unremembered Dead examines the motif of non-burial in the Hebrew Bible in its ancient Near Eastern contexts. Mansen proposes a new typology for analyzing these references, and demonstrates the range of functions that the non-burial motif served as a literary weapon in both biblical and extra-biblical texts.

Innovation in Post-Biblical Hebrew Poetry

A Stylistic Analysis of the Hymns of Qumran
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0705-2
Innovation in Post-Biblical Hebrew Poetry analyzes the style of the hymnic poetry of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Building upon the structuralist foundations of poetic analysis derived by Roman Jakobson, and the system of rhetorical tropes designed by Belgian scholars known as “Group μ,” Jobe examines hymnic poetry from the Rules of the Community, the Thanksgiving Hymns, and the Songs of the Sabbat Sacrifice. Special attention is paid to features of parallelism and to how it varies from biblical models.
