Inhaltsangabe: This book is difficult to review, as it attempts an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to the book of Jonah-a "literary, exegetical, psychological and theological analysis." So is it to be judged in terms of the individual methods employed or of the final synthesis? The two wellknown authors, father and son, one a professor of OT, the other a psychiatrist who has published in psychotherapeutic and existential religious journals, are well-equipped for the task, and the result makes for fascinating reading, even if it does not quite live up to their ambitious intention. Given the best that scholarly opinion can offer about the history of the text of Jonah, particularly the linguistic evidence about its dating, they ask what conclusions can be reached about the political, cultural, and social influences upon it. Accepting a postexilic date, the authors detect Stoic and Cynic influences; define the book as a satire on the Menippean model; and locate it in the third century BCE, a "time of party strife in Judea between the 'Hellenised' (or modernist) Jews, and the Hasidim (or orthodox), strongly opposed to foreign influence on ancestral tradition" (p. 41). They bolster their arguments by asserting the uniqueness of the literary theme (fantastic voyages belonged to the "Greek novel," p. 38) which further implies extra-Israelite Hellenistic influences and sources. The weakest suggestion is to associate the qiqayon, Jonah's "gourd," with the Greek Kukeyon, which "designates in the Eleusinian Mysteries an initiatory beverage made of a barley concoction" (p. 156), thus introducing a concealed reference to the mystery religions. While this is acknowledged to be a somewhat distant analogy, the authors nevertheless pursue this line since they have convinced themselves about the Hellenistic period.
