Reframing Politics in the Hebrew Bible : A New Introduction with Readings Hardback
Edited by Mira Morgenstern
Inspired by the Enlightenment readings of Hebrew biblical texts generated in the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries, Mira Morgenstern's Reframing Politics in the Hebrew Bible goes beyond the pioneering interpretations of various biblical texts penned by such noted Bible students as Spinoza, Rousseau, and Angelina Grimke to present an introduction to the Hebrew Bible as a whole from the perspective of a modern-day political theorist.
In doing so, it offers a brilliant thematic guide to the Hebrew Bible's most politically salient passages, complete with text and commentary.
Morgenstern's account of the significance of these ancient yet strangely modern texts will fascinate students of both ancient and modern political theory-as well as all readers of the Hebrew Bible itself.
