Item description

Jephta and his Daughter By Lion Feuchtwanger Author of: The Ugly Duchess --Raquel -- etc. Ex-Library Book. Copyright Date: 1957, 1958. No Edition Stated. Published By: G. P. Putnam's Sons. 255 Pages. Book Boards Are In Fair condition with some edge shelf wear. Has several library stamps markings. Pages Are Intact Tight with a couple of light soiling spots. Dustjacket is in Fair condition with some edge shelf wear. From the Flyleaf:.......... "Now Jephta the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of a harlot...." (Judges XI,I.) This is the story of a man, a man who stood monumental and alone in the Israel of long ago, Jephta the bastard, Jephta the bandit, robbed of his inheritance by his brothers, who yet found in himself strength of spirit and body to rise to be a judge in Israel and to sit in the seat of his father, Gilead. Yet Jephta is more than a Biblical success story. To reach his goal he had to battle not only his family, and his foes the Ammonites, but also the high priest Abijam and his god Yahweh---and most of all his own doubts and fears. In the end Yahweh required of him a cruel and awe-inspiring sacrifice, the life of his beloved daughter Ja'ala. It is a tale of primitive men and women, with primitive passions, struggling against foreign oppressors and even more against their superstitions. From the murky regions of legend and the stirring but enigmatic Old Testament account the author has brought to life this intriguing story, and with all the great resources of his scholarship and literary skill has fashioned a compelling portrait of the hero as a man of action and a god-seeker, testing Yahweh and being tested---as indeed is modern man.
