Editorial Reviews

Review

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

Karel van der Toorn
— University of Amsterdam
“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.”

Bibliotheca Orientalis
“This important study deserves a wide public and more than just the attention of the specialists in this field.”

About the Author

Mark S. Smith holds the Skirball Chair of Bible and Ancient Near Eastern Studies at New York University. His many other books include The Early History of God: Yahweh and the Other Deities in Ancient Israel and God in Translation: Deities in Cross-Cultural Discourse in the Biblical World.

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