Item description for The Religion of Ancient Israel (Library of Ancient Israel) by Patrick Miller & Douglas Knight...
Overview Patrick Miller investigates the role religion played in an expanding circle of influences in ancient Israel: the family, village, tribe, and nation-state. He situates Israel's religion in its context, where a variety of social forces affected beliefs, and where popular cults openly competed with the "official" religion. Miller makes extensive use of both epigraphic and artifactual evidence as he deftly probes the complexities of Iron Age culture and society and their enduring significance for people today.
