Law, Power and Justice In Ancient IsraelIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
The author’s aim is to describe law as it was understood and practised in ‘Ancient Israel,’ but making a distinction between that law and the law as described in the Old Testament texts. He describes his method of reconstructing Israelite law as ‘triangulation.’ By using ancient texts, evidence from neighbouring cultures and history recoverable from the findings of archaeology, triangulation may be achieved. The reader will have to judge whether this approach works, and whether law among the Israelites emerges with any certainty from the application of these principles. Nevertheless, it all makes for a most stimulating read in what must be for many, unfamiliar territory.
