Political Themes in the Hebrew Scriptures

$100.00 - Online Price


Jules Gleicher explores selected passages from the Hebrew Scriptures that focus especially, but not exclusively, on the sacred text's teachings and implications about politics, law, justice, and rulership. Chapters deal, successively, with the Book of Genesis, episodes in the career of Moses, aspects of the Mosaic Law, the Prophetic History, and five prophetic practitioners. Proceeding neither from the doctrinal premises of the professional clergy nor from the methodological assumptions of Biblical criticism, the essays offer respectful and thoughtful attempts to question an ancient and venerable source on vital issues of perennial interest.
