Endorsements & Reviews-

"This collection of Norman Gottwald's eloquent and thought-provoking essays, some of them never before published, provides important insights into the pioneering work of the author, whose concern for social justice in today's world intersects with his quest to understand the socio-political trajectories and ideological formulations of ancient Israel. In addition, the several essays that pay tributes to other scholars reveal his sensitive and productive interactions with his mentors and colleagues as well as the profundity of his thought processes."
--Carol Meyers, Duke University; Author of Rediscovering Eve: Ancient Israelite Women in Context

"Norman Gottwald has devoted a lifetime to the intersections between social justice and innovative, rigorous analysis of biblical texts. This book--the first of three volumes--is a culmination and testimony to this work by one of the truly great biblical scholars of the last sixty years."
--Roland Boer, Distinguished Research Professor, Renmin University of China, Beijing; Research Professor, University of Newcastle, Australia

"Among the rare few in biblical scholarship with truly international recognition and significance, Norman Gottwald holds a distinction that is unique. As teacher, writer, editor, speaker, and organizer whose leadership spans more than six decades, he stands unmatched in the combination of innovative research, probing inquiry, eloquent clarity, popular reach, ethical engagement, and breadth of global importance marking a lifetime of achievement. This is the distinction embodied in this welcome selection of his work."
--Robert B. Coote, Old Testament emeritus, San Francisco Theological Seminary
