Aggression and Oppression in the Ancient World
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Shinkoskey makes a serious case for the Bible as a fundamentally political manifesto for freedom and well-being in the face of violent threats and imperial aggressions. The intent of the text is to provide institutional protection against exploitative power. Shinkoskey's claim is against the common reduction of the Bible to an innocuous preoccupation with religion. His argument requires a wholesale reconsideration and suggests an urgency in our current milieu of aggressive power and limitless violence that remains largely unchecked."
