The Material Culture of the Bible

Full Product Description

Scholarly discussions of biblical interpretation often ignore the fact that language and literature form an integral part of a people's culture, that interpretation therefore implies the total cultural system of the relevant literature, and that biblical interpretation consequently implies inter-cultural communication. This book explores the theoretical and practical implications of this observation from a cultural anthropological perspective, looks at recent anthropological studies of ancient Israelite society, supplies practical examples of a cultural interpretation of ancient Hebrew narratives, and discusses the impact of the notions 'cultural relativity' and 'inter-cultural communication' for biblical interpretation.

The Material Culture of the Bible by Ferdinand E. Deist was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in June 2000. The ISBN for The Material Culture of the Bible is 9781841270982.
