Overview

This collection of essays, articles, and studies was published in honor of G. W. Ahlström, an eminent Old Testament scholar. Divided into four sections, In the Shelter of Elyon surveys the influence of Ahlström, literature and cultural tradition, faith and cult, and history and historiography. Ahlström was a challenging scholar, and these articles testify to his influence and importance for a generation of Old Testament scholars.
