Eva Mroczek, The Literary Imagination in Jewish Antiquity, Oxford University Press, 288 pages, $99.00.

There was no such thing as the Bible when ancient Jewish literature was composed. With a more expansive view of sources, we can glimpse our way into a completely different picture of how ancient people might have imagined their own literary world.

Joseph Ryan Kelly speaks with Eva Mroczek, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of California Davis, about her new book The Literary Imagination in Jewish Antiquity.
