From the Inside Flap
"An engaging book with a fresh approach, which makes important contributions to several different scholarly conversations. Johnson's fluid notion of genre commends her work. She also presents a very strong reading of 3 Maccabees. With recent interest in the ancient novel, greater availability of the texts, and renewed interest in ways of shaping Jewish identity during this period, this exceptionally well-written book will have broad appeal."--Carl Holladay, author of A Critical Introduction to the New Testament: Interpreting the Message and Meaning of Jesus Christ"Historical Fictions and Hellenistic Jewish Identity contributes a systematic and coordinated study of the use and misuse of historical tradition in quasi-fictional Hellenistic Jewish text. It treats this material in an original, highly critical, and extremely stimulating manner."--Louis Feldman, author of Josephus's Interpretation of the Bible
