The third collection of Reinhard G. Kratz's Selected Essays is devoted to »myth« in the Hebrew Bible and contains material dealing with the tense relationship between biblical tradition and historical reality. While the first part (Myth and History in Biblical Scholarship) takes a research-history approach and introduces renowned scholars who have subjected the difference between tradition and history to a critical analysis, the two following parts offer examples from two areas of the Hebrew Bible. The second section is devoted to the Myth of God's Kingship and its transformation within the Psalms and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Myth of God's People forms the third part. Here the essays concentrate on the background to the grasp of history and stories in the North-West Semitic inscriptions which illuminate the emergence of sacred history in the Hebrew Bible.
