"People of the Lord," by Prof.
Harry M. Buck, published by Mac-
millan. is a most interesting analy-
sis of Old Testament stories, an
ideal study of Scriptures by an
eminent Christian.
Dr. Buck; associate professor of
Bible and religion at Wilson Col-
lege, has an unusually interesting
approach to his evaluative study.
He quotes many parables, presents
his views in a popular form that
will create as deep an interest
among laymen as it will among
ministers. Jewish students will

similarly be interested in his meth-
ods of viewing the Bible stories.
Here is a typical example of
the charm that marks many of
his commentaries. Dealing with
Jewish discontent under the Ro-
mans, describing "various atti-
tudes toward Rome" which "char-
acterized the Jews, conditioning
their religious outlook," Prof.
Buck wrote:
"Rabbi Judah ben Il'ia says,
`How fine are the deeds of this
nation. They have repaired
streets, they have built bridges,
they have erected baths . • .;' to
which Rabbi ben Yohai replied,
`Everything which they have
improved they have improved
only for themselves. They have
improved streets to accommo-
date prostitutes, baths to luxuri-
ate themselves, bridges to take
toll from.' Rabbi Klausner, who
recorded these quotations, con-
cluded, 'Both men were right.' "
In a footnote, Dr. Buck ex-
plains that the reference to "Rabbi
Klausner" was to Joseph Klaus-
ner's "Jesus to Paul," published
by Macmillan in 1944. This is one
of the few errors in his book.
Klausner was not a rabbi: he was
professor of history at the He-
brew University and also authored
"The Life of Jesus."
Another possible misinterpreta-
tion in Buck's most impressive
work is his treatment of Purim.
First he describes "the genocide
that was planned" which "speaks
with a note of modern pain, for
in the light of Hitler's pogrom
Haman's attempted massacre no
longer sounds like a fantasy." But
then he writes:
"It would be a good story if it
stopped right here" (when Aha-
suerus ordered Haman to be
hanged on the gallows he had
prepared for Mordecai). "Chapter
9 has the Jews given leave to
kill as many of their enemies as
they could during the two-day
period. . . ."
This sounds like a vengeance
(in the Book of Esther the
phrase actually used is that the
Jews were given the right "to
avenge themselves on their ene-
mies"-8.13). It appears like a
rebuke that Jews should also
have resorted to genocide. But
in the Book of Esther it is
stated clearly that the Jews
were to do the assaulting on
"all the forces of the people and
province that would assault
them." In other words, it was
to be self-defense. The Jews
were given such a privilege un-
der a condition in which—as com-
mentators have explained—they
would have been murdered be-
cause the people who had such
an order did not have time to
learn about a subsequent order
countermanding Haman's in-
structions to kill all the Jews.
It stands to reason that Prof.
Buck writes and interprets as a
Christian. Perhaps his book is pri-
marily intended for Christians. He
injects an inevitable Christological
note as a Christian but he empha-
sizes that the study as he ap-
proaches it "ought to demonstrate
our common origin and lead to
further mutual understanding and
appreciation." And his commen-
taries certainly emphasize the

need for an understanding of the
Scriptures.
Of interest is his comment that
"To study the Tanak is not to
study Judaism except in its earliest
stages. To read the Old Testa-
ment is not to study Christianity.
It is obvious that without a care-
ful reading of the Qur'an we have
not begun to study Islam. Here,
however, we have been describing
a body of literature shared by
three great traditions. . . ."
He makes an interesting point
that "there is no way to gloss over
the vengeance in some of the
psalms," but that for m a t u r e
minds it is necessary "to pick and
to choose among the various
traditions handed them."
This - need not be interpreted as
proselytizing, but it is a Chris-
ian's viewpoint. Yet, there is value
in his emphasis that "reverent
scholarship is an important part
of piety." And his collection of
parables, his resort to commen-
taries to explain texts, his ex-
planatory skills, make his "People
of the Lord" an unusually inter-
esting book. —P. S.

Beatniks 'Dig' Tel Aviv

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — Large
numbers of beatniks from the
United States, France and the
Scandinavian countries are living
here under flourishing conditions.
Shabbily dressed, with unkempt
hair and beards and empty pockets,
they stroll in groups through the
streets of Tel Aviv, after having
been ejected from Eilat. Though
there are some Jews among these
beatniks, the majority are non-
Jews. Because of the warm cli-
mate, they dispense with hotels
and spend their days on park
benches which also serve as their
sleeping quarters at night. They
derive their income from wealthy
tourists who pay them for snap-
ping their pictures. Many parents
have become concerned about the
unconventional visitors, because
Israeli youth have recently been
attracted to their groups. Bearded
Israeli boys, and girls in beatnik
attire have now become a common
sight on the streets. There is now
serious talk among public authori-
ties of the need to deport the
beatniks before the movement
spreads any further. "We have
enough of our own beatniks and
don't need any imported ones,"
they say.
