Summary: A perceptive and engaging account of the religious beliefs and practices of the ancient Israelites. In this brief and accessible study, Susan Niditch offers a perceptive account of the religious beliefs and practices of the ancient Israelites, analyzing the complex and varied ways in which they present and preserve themselves in the Old Testament. Drawing on the most recent literary scholarship and archaeological evidence, the book gives readers a compelling accoun
t of how Israelite culture changed through the three great periods of their past--the distant pre-monarchic age, the monarchies of Israel and Judah, and the Babylonian exile and return. The heart of the book is a rich description of the Israelites' religious life as revealed in the the Hebrew Bible. Niditch explores how they described their experience of God, drawing out consistent themes in the Biblical stories. Most importantly, Niditch allows us to see the world through the Israelites' eyes, as she reconstructs both their habits and their larger worldview. Her insightful, subtly nuanced portrait brings to life this ancient people whose legacy continues to influence and fascinate the world today.
  • Illuminates the life and customs of this ancient people.
  • Draws on the most recent literary scholarship and archaeological evidence.
