Thou Traveller Unknown: The Presence and Absence of God in the Jacob Narrative
by Kevin Walton
In Thou Traveller Unknown, Kevin Walton offers a fresh reading of the story of Jacob in the book of Genesis through the paradox of divine presence and absence. The work also seeks to make a contribution to Pentateuchal studies by bringing together a close reading of the final text with historical critical insights, doing justice to the text's historical depth, final form and canonical status.
Praise for the Print Edition
