No Other Gods: Emergent Monotheism in Israel


Sheffield Academic Press 1997

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This is the first full-scale assessment of the theological, social and ideational implications of our new understandings of ancient Israel's social and religious development. Scholars now stress the gradual emergence of Israel out of the culture of ancient Palestine and the surrounding ancient Near East rather than contrast Israel with the ancient world. Our new paradigms stress the ongoing and unfinished nature of the monotheistic revolution, which is indeed still in process today.
