Beschreibung

Ancient peoples regarded names as indicative of character and destiny. The Jews were no exception. All Jews descended from Jacob, who was given the name Israel. The Bible seemed to explain this name as having to do with struggle. This book examines those explanations, and attempts to show how they came to be adopted and why.

...an erudite and well-researched book.
