Description: The Old Testament is integrally bound to the history and culture of Ancient Israel and the Ancient Middle East. This collection of essays primarily employs approaches from the fields of literary history and archeology. It makes an important contribution to cultural and religious historical aspects of kingship and prophecy. It also casts a new light on questions regarding institutional education and worship practices, on the possibilities and limitations of religious historical comparison, and on Biblical interpretation in a Judeo-Christian context.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, Literary Approaches
