The Encounter with the Divine in Mesopotamia and Israel Hardback
Part of the Religious Studies: Bloomsbury Academic Collections series
While most of its contemporary religions have faded away, Israelite religion continues to have a major influence in the world.
First delivered in 1975 as a Jordan Lecture in Comparative Religion, this volume argues that in its beginnings Israelite religion had much in common with ancient Mesopotamian religion and suggests that its endurance is due to its dynamic development of the concepts it shared with other religions.
