Product Description

In this work Bernard Levinson demonstrates the radical break with the past and the way in which the author or composers of Deuteronomy not only transformed religion and society in ancient Israel but also radically revised its literary history. He also provides an extended study of three key passages in the legal corpus: the requirement for the centralization of worship, the law transforming the old Passover into a pilgrimage festival, and the unit replacing traditional village justice with a professionalized judiciary. He demonstrates the impact of civilization upon the legal corpus, while providing a theorectical analysis of religious change and cultural renewal in ancient Israel. This book is hardbound, has 205 pages, and is published by Oxford.
