Cultural Landscapes and the Bible

ByJ W Rogerson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This volume contains thirty-eight essays published by J. W. Rogerson between 1970 and 2014. Several appear in English translation for the first time. Part one explores the social organisation of Old Testament society, its thought-worlds and its understanding of nature, sacrifice and physical boundaries. There is a detailed engagement with the structural anthropology of Claude Lévi-Strauss and a general discussion of the implications of applying sociology to Old Testament Studies. The second part contains essays on the history of the interpretation of the Old Testament . Part three is philosophical and theological. This volume offers an excellent guide to the range of the author’s thinking and writing, bringing together writing that in some cases is not readily accessible. It indicates something of the intellectual and academic basis of the author’s Christian devotional writings and sermons also published by Beauchief Abbey Press.
