Land, Credit and Crisis : Agrarian Finance in the Hebrew Bible, Hardback Book

Land, Credit and Crisis : Agrarian Finance in the Hebrew Bible Hardback

Part of the BibleWorld series

Description

Land, Credit and Crisis presents a new understanding of the financial culture of the Bible.

Biblical Palestine was characterized by an over-abundance of arable land combined with a chronic lack of manpower and agricultural credit - circumstances which lead to much prophetic fulminating against merchants and the rich.

The book reveals how the financial instruments and institutions of the time reflected a tough economic realism and argues that the image of the biblical prophet as a champion of social justice must be revised.
