The Torah in 1Maccabees

A Literary Critical Approach to the Text

This volume addresses two pivotal questions surrounding the composition of 1Maccabees. It sets out to discern the place and function of the torah within the community described by the book. However, before addressing the main problem, the author must first determine the composition history of the text. Given that the former orthodoxy of a unitary authorship seems to be breaking down, and no consensus has taken its place, a literary critical investigation occupies a necessary and lengthy portion of the work. Once a recommendation for the book’s composition history is reached, attitudes toward the inherited Judean tradition are described in each of the strata discovered. The resulting study reveals a wide variety of opinions on the Judean traditions and their function in society. This contributes to the current trend in scholarship of the Hellenistic period questioning the dichotomy between Judaism and Hellenism by demonstrating the different attitudes within even one text.

Her best friends Jeanette and Dena will help her accomplish that. Dyan also meets three other girls and they all become a "family." Dyan loves the simple things that life brings her way. She is feisty, strong willed, caring, sensitive, and sometimes stubborn. One bad choice though will change everything. It will bring tragedy and heartache, too much for any young teenager to bear. If Dyan could relive that summer over again, she would. The girls will eventually learn that life is too short and that they should make every moment count. Dyan loves her family, her friends, and her life in general and when your thirteen years old nothing can go wrong or at least that's what Dyan thinks. This book may be for teen readers and older readers as well. It's a nostalgic view of the early 60's, a time when life was simple and happy. Readers that lived in the 1960's era hopefully this will bring back some fond memories. If I made one person smile while reading my book, then to me it is a success.
