MEDIA REVIEWS
Gnuse is clearly a sensitive and informed scholar who is aware of the complexity of this issue. * The Journal Of Religion *
The perspectives are clear, documentation is pertinent, the format provides an easy read, and the heart of the book is provocative and relevant to current archaeological and other comparative data. * Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
We must applaud Gnuse for his efforts. His treatments and summaries of various opinions are judicious and helpful. * Ashland Theological Journal *
A penetrating critical review of the recent debates over the notion of saving history as the characteristic feature of the worldview of ancient Israel....well summarized, and contains ample references to the most critical literature. * Ashland Theological Journal *
Gnuse's book will expand the horizon for other biblical theologians, who are currently possessed of a limited appreciation of the scholarship regarding the theological unities and parallels obtaining between Israel and the rest of the ancient Near East. Throughout it is clearly written, logically organized, and void of the polemical and confrontational style that the topic naturally suggests. * Journal Of Near Eastern Studies *
Gnuse's monograph is most helpful in its review of both the history of the model and the current debate about its adequacy. The author's summaries of the scholarly critiques and arguments are clear and concise. * Interpretation *
