Editorial Reviews

Review

“A magisterial treatment of the development of Israelite monotheism throughout the entire biblical period. . . . The starting point for much new research.”
— Robert R. Wilson
Yale University

“This is an amazing book. Mark Smith takes the reader inside the intellectual universe of ancient Israel and its neighbors in a search for the possibilities of cultural translation. Learned, thoroughly researched, and written in clear and sober prose, this study defines a new level in our understanding of ancient Near Eastern theological thought.”
— Karel van der Toorn
University of Amsterdam

About the Author

Mark S. Smith is the Skirball Professor of Bible and Ancient Near Eastern Studies at New York University. His other books include The Priestly Vision of Genesis 1 and The Early History of God: Yahweh and the Other Deities in Ancient Israel.

Why Did Amazon change the subtitle? This was brought to my attention lately. Otherwise, I love the book.
