About-

In this ground-breaking book, distinguished consultant clinical neurophysiologist Michael Glasby turns to the Bible to ask whether the practices of the Levitical priesthood might in any way have shared features of what we now commonly call ‘public healthcare’, contributing to the well-being of individuals and society.

Is it the case that the priesthood understood some rudimentary elements of healthcare, or is this commonly held view merely the result of modern opinion formed (perhaps inappropriately) through an accumulation of later redaction and exegesis?
