Ethical and Unethical in the Old Testament : God and Humans in Dialogue, Hardback Book

Ethical and Unethical in the Old Testament : God and Humans in Dialogue Hardback

Edited by Katharine Dell

Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies series

Description

This volume is interested in what the Old Testament and beyond (Dead Sea Scrolls and Targum) has to say about ethical behaviour through its characters, through its varying portrayals of God and humanity in mutual dialogue and through its authors.

It covers a wide range of genres of Old Testament material such as law, prophecy and wisdom.

It takes key themes such as friendship and the holy war tradition and it considers key texts.

It considers authorial intention in the portrayal of ethical stances.

It also links up with wider ethical issues such as the environment and human engagement with the dark side of God. It is a multi-authored volume, but the unifying theme was made clear at the start and contributors have worked to that remit. This has resulted in a wide-ranging and fascinating insight into a neglected area, but one that is starting to receive increased attention in the biblical area.
