About-

A foundational law promoting worship of the God of the Exodus (the Decalogue's First Commandment) has little meaning without a government policy permitting such worship. Robert Kimball Shinkoskey discusses policies in the Bible which enact freedom of religion for prophets and other dissidents who work to restore worship of the God of their ancestors. In the process, he challenges the theological idea of the cessation of prophecy. New revelation from God is necessary to rescue ancient Israel from backsliding and restore her to a place of security and tranquility in a Mediterranean world gone mad with imperial war-making.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Robert Kimball Shinkoskey has shown in this remarkable book that at its core, the Bible is a bold, liberative, usually misunderstood challenge--at the very antipodes of sectarian narrowness. Israel is 'chosen' only to spread the message that all of humanity is chosen to risk the experience of life as an adventure where no moral tradition and no religion monopolizes the truth."
--Daniel C. Maguire
Marquette University

"Not satisfied with the religious tradition he inherited, Shinkoskey declares that God never intended prophecy to end. He surveys prophets from the first man through Moses and Jesus and suggests the likelihood of prophecy beyond the Bible."
--James H. Gailey
Columbia Theological Seminary
