God And Earthly Power
Full Product Description
The interpretation of the Old Testament focuses on Deuteronomy and the narrative in which it is set, because these are especially fruitful for political thinking. The thesis is argued for both exegetically and in relation actual use of the Old Testament in the history of political thought. An important argument of the book is that divine power, mediated through Torah, results in human freedom and a mandate for political responsibility. It is even the best guarantee of these. In this connection it is argued that in the biblical understanding of god there is not a link between monotheism and totalitarianism.
