Desiring Divinity

Self-deification in Early Jewish and Christian Mythmaking

M. David Litwa

  • Sustained, critical (and non-moralizing) attention to a neglected yet contested topic
  • Rigorous analysis between figures not often compared (e.g., Jesus and Simon of Samaria)
  • In-depth comparison of a variety of texts from the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Apocrypha and Gnostic literature
