This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the academic career of Michael Fishbane. Since his first teaching post at Brandeis University in 1969, Fishbane has been shaping the understanding of Jewish texts and traditions at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The chapter then considers his scholarly contributions. Fishbane wrote and edited more than nineteen books and hundreds of articles and reviews in scholarly journals and encyclopedias. His most influential works includes Biblical Interpretation in Ancient Israel (1985), Garments of Torah: Essays in Biblical Hermeneutics (1989), The Kiss of God: Spiritual Death and Dying in Judaism. An overview of the subsequent chapters in this book is presented.
