83 pages - Softcover - New
Social Justice in the Hebrew Bible examines how Israel utilized the social justice thought of other Near Eastern peoples to face its own justice crises. It analyzes the Hebrew Bible's statements about this issue in its law codes, prophetic books, psalms, narrative works, and wisdom literature. The basis for this analysis is Near Eastern sayings on justice and the social setting of Israel's justice concern.
