Disloyalty and Destruction

Full Product Description

This book is a heuristic reading strategy for a modern reader to engage with YHWH's threats against Israel in "Deuteronomy". First, the biblical text is considered through close reading to discern the logic of YHWH's threats: what motivates the threats, what form the threats take, and what effect the threats expect to produce. This goal is accomplished in three steps. First, the biblical text is considered through close reading to discern the logic of YHWH's threats: what motivates the threats, what form the threats take, and what effect the threats expect to produce. Second, a modern analogy is sought that most helpfully matches the structure and logic observed in the biblical text. A number of common modern analogies for the divine-human relationship (e.g., parent-child, master-slave, husband-wife) are deemed unhelpful because they cannot support the features of the biblical pattern. However, the threats of the modern state against those who threaten it are found to bear significant resemblance. Finally, this analogy is developed for each of several significant passages of "Deuteronomy".Over the last 30 years this pioneering series has established an [illegible] reputation for cutting-edge international scholarship in Biblical Studies [illegible] attracted leading authors and editors in the field. The series takes many and creative approaches to its subjects, including innovative work from and theological perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and [illegible] developments in cultural studies and reception history.
