#NewBooks from Princeton University Press

Books released spanning the weeks of June 29th and July 6th, 2015.

Included in the new releases is Christine Hayes’ What’s Divine about Divine Law? Early Perspectives, a book that untangles the classical and biblical roots of the Western idea of divine law and shows how early adherents to biblical tradition—Hellenistic Jewish writers such as Philo, the community at Qumran, Paul, and the talmudic rabbis—struggled to make sense of this conflicting legacy.
