Revisions of the Night: Politics and Promises in the Patriarchal Dreams of Genesis

Full Product Description

An intriguing and subtle study of five Genesis dreams: Abimelech's (20.1-18), Jacob's (28.10-22; 31.10-13), Laban's (31.24) and Abraham's (15.1-21). Like many of their ancient Near Eastern counterparts, all occur at times of uncertainty, concern status, and emphasize divine involvement in human affairs. At a deeper level, they also address doubts arising from God's promise of land, descendants and a unique role for Israel among the nations. Their particular treatment of relations between Israelites and non-Israelites and of Israel's absence from the land points to the Babylonian Exile as the background against which the patriarchal dream texts achieved their present form. Revisions of the Night shows how dreams combine the highly personal with the ardently political in an inspired response to national crisis.
