Reviews - What do customers think about Ancient Israel: The Old Testament In Its Social Context?

A much needed volume  Nov 25, 2006
This volume is a much needed volume in the social scientific study of the Old Testament. The central, unifying theme in this volume is the use of anthropological, social-psychological, and macro-sociological models and their heuristic use in terms of interpreting Hebrew Bible texts. Having read many socio-historical texts on ancient Israel, few actually utilize anthropology and the other social sciences in a way that social scientists actually would. This volume does just that... Explaining a model and then utilizing that model to see if it is a heuristic tool that works and proves that this method is helpful in Hebrew Bible interpretation.
 
Um...  Mar 20, 2006
In the title, it should be "its social context."

That was bothering me.
