Product Description

What part does the land of Canaan play in the biblical conception of “Israel”? To what extent does the religion promoted by the Hebrew Bible require that Israel live its communal life in the national homeland? And how does life in the land compare in importance with other elements presented as belonging to Israel’s ultimate destiny, such as, for example, adherence to the law? To what extent must the people of Israel take hold of and settle in the “entire land of Canaan” for them to fulfill their destiny? Might the land be shared with other peoples, or must non-Israelites be expelled and subjugated, or at least kept at a safe and isolated distance?

David Frankel asks these questions and others of the Hebrew Bible as a whole and of the biblical texts individually. He shows that all of these questions were addressed by various biblical authors and that diverse and even opposing answers were given to them. Frankel’s intriguing textual reconstructions and understanding of the social and historical contexts from which the texts come, help propel his analysis and the conclusions that he reaches. Many new and previously unrecognized biblical concepts and traditions that have significant theological implications for the contemporary religious and political situation in the State of Israel are identified and analyzed throughout this work.
