Editorial Reviews

Werner E. Lemke
...[S]eeks to make a fresh contribution to the literature on land by analyzing how the various concepts, images, beliefs, or theologies about land presented in biblical texts reflect several distinct ideologies....This book is a significant contribution to the discussion about the land theme in the Hebrew Scriptures. It does make abundantly clear that there is no monolithic concept of land in the Bible and that scholarly analysis of that theme must become more finely nuanced. —Society of Biblical Literature
