Endorsements & Reviews-

“In an extraordinarily long and pioneering career, Norman Gottwald has consistently kept biblical analysis and the search for social justice in close dialogue, often of a more radical kind. In this third volume of Social Justice and the Hebrew Bible, we find Gottwald engaging in detailed exegesis, the deployment of sophisticated social-science analysis, and the ever-present need to identify how and why biblical texts are liberating. This work is a must-read for anyone who holds to such ideals.”

—Roland Boer, author of The Sacred Economy of Ancient Israel
