Endorsements & Reviews-

“A forerunner of the social scientific study of the Hebrew Bible, this second volume of Norman Gottwald’s collected works represents his ongoing commitment in bringing together his formidable scholarly insights into the biblical text and its ancient Israelite context with his deeply passionate concerns about the alarming social, political, economic, and religious issues that we continue to face in today’s polarized global world.”

—Gale A. Yee, Nancy W. King Professor of Biblical Studies, Episcopal Divinity School



“It is impossible to overstate the importance of Norman Gottwald for Old Testament study and for theological reflection more generally. By insisting on social scientific perspectives, Gottwald has decisively altered the contours of study in our discipline. In this volume, Gottwald’s singular scholarship is given a valuable summation, plus the tracing of contemporary implications of his work. A bonus is his masterful review of other significant volumes in the field. This summation of Gottwald’s contribution will serve as a reminder of his important work, and a generative opening for continuing work, both historical and contemporary.”

—Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary



“Norman Gottwald is justly famous for his ‘big books,’ for they have literally rewritten the agenda of his chosen field. Readers who know him only through these larger works, however, have a treat in store in this volume and its two companions. Only in this collection of his many shorter essays—some previously published, some published here for the first time—can one glimpse the true catholicity and depth of Gottwald’s learning, interests, and commitments.”

—Marvin L. Chaney, Nathaniel Gray Professor Emeritus of Hebrew Exegesis and Old Testament, San Francisco Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union
