Endorsements & Reviews-

Professor Nelson Glueck's pioneer study of hesed and its meaning in the Bible has long been a basic source for biblical scholarship and theology. When the work first appeared as a published doctoral dissertation in 1927, titled Das Wort hesed im altentestamentlichen Sprachgerrauche als menschliche und gottliche gemeinschaftgemasse Verhaltunsweise, it was a methodological landmark study of the history of the ideas of the Bible.

The importance of Nelson Glueck's monograph on hesed is, perhaps, best demonstrated in the use of his research in almost every important study involving the term since 1927, and in the relatively limited contribution made to Glueck's interpretation of the word.
