'Isaac went out to the field (Genesis 24:63)' is a collection of 28 articles by 47 authors from research institutions in Israel
and around the world honoring Professor Isaac Gilead on the occasion of his 71st birthday. The authors include the honoree's
mentors, colleagues, and students. Most of the articles deal with archaeological subjects, especially prehistoric and proto-historic
archaeology, which are the focus of the honoree's teaching and research. Reflecting the broad horizons of Gilead's interests,
the volume also includes studies in other subjects including the Bible and the ancient Near East, Second Temple literature,
the history of biblical exegesis, and the influence of the Bible on contemporary Hebrew Literature.
