History, Politics and the Bible from the Iron Age to the Media Age (Hardcover)
about this item
As biblical studies becomes increasingly fragmented, this collection of essays brings together a number of leading scholars in order to show how historical reconstruction, philology, metacriticism, and reception history can be part of a collective vision for the future of the field.
This collection of essays focuses more specifically on critical questions surrounding the construction of ancient Israel(s), 'minimalism', the ongoing significance of lexicography, the development of early Judaism, Orientalism, and the use of the Bible in contemporary political discourses.
