Editorial Reviews

Review

"The essays, expanded versions of lectures delivered to the Oxford Old Testament Seminar between 2001 and 2003, are of exceptionally high quality. The collection is a must for theological libraries."- Richard J. Clifford, 68, 2006
(Catholic Biblical Quarterly)

'The collection as a whole...is a good example of the contemporary flourishing of the kind of rigorous and meticulous historical study that has been a central characteristic of modern Old Testament scholarship....The level of the essays is advanced, appropriate to those at home in Old Testament scholarship. Many aspects of Israel's temple, and practices and literature related to it within their ancient context, are indeed illuminated.'
Walter Moberly, Expository Times, 01/10/2006
(Walter Moberly Expository Times)

"Each essay has been thoroughly researched and many conclude with substantial bibliographies which help to make this volume a very valuable resource. It represents scholarship at its highest level. The interplay between the essays produces another level of insight in to the significance of temple and worship in the development of Israel's identity and self-understanding. Highly recommended."
J.E. Tollington SOTS/JSOT Booklist, 2006
(J.E. Tollington SOTS/JSOT Booklist 2006 Society For Old Testament Study Booklist)

'an excellent investigation...several of the essays...make important contributions to our further understanding of the Temple in Late Second Temple Judaism and in the First Testament.'
(Ralph K. Hawkins, Bethel College, US Biblical Theology Bulletin)

"Ably edited by John Day...The contributions are all accomplished scholarly endeavours, as one would expect, and the frame of reference is solid historical criticism with enviable mastery of secondary literature in many languages. Some articles are surveys, the most engaging of which is the editor's analysis of 'Whatever happened to the ark of the covenant?'...There is a wealth of exegetical insight here...[and] this collection will be a useful addition to theological libraries."
R. S. B., Heythrop Journal
(Heythrop Journal)
