Bridging the Gap: Ritual and Ritual Texts in the Bible

Format: Digital
ISBN: 9781575068015


In this introduction, Gerald A. Klingbeil emphasizes the importance of a close examination of ritual, especially in the Old Testament, for the fields of biblical and theological studies. He defines the basic terms used in ritual studies and explains the concepts involved in interpreting biblical ritual. He offers a broad history of the study of biblical ritual, beginning with the critiques of ritual found in the Old Testament prophetic books and surveying attitudes toward ritual down to modern times. Drawing on the fields of anthropology and sociology—as well as his decade of work in the field—Klingbeil presents a comprehensive reading strategy for biblical ritual texts.
