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

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