'Richard Hiers' " Justice and Compassion in Biblical Law" offers an extraordinarily thorough analysis of Old Testament legal texts, organized around the categories of civil law, criminal law, and social welfarelegislation. Employing a methodology that analyzes biblical legal textsaccording to their likely development over time, Hiers assesses these texts inlight of western/American categories of legal thought. In so doing, he showsthat these oft-neglected materials not only have considerable moral depth andcontemporary relevance,

'Richard Hiers' " Justice and Compassion in Biblical Law" offers an extraordinarily thorough analysis of Old Testament legal texts, organized around the categories of civil law, criminal law, and social welfare legislation. Employing a methodology that analyzes biblical legal texts according to their likely development over time, Hiers assesses these texts in light of western/American categories of legal thought. In so doing, he shows that these oft-neglected materials not only have considerable moral depth and contemporary relevance, but that they also played a role in shaping American public life from our earliest days as a people. Writing with great scholarly self-discipline and staying tightly focused on his task, Hiers' research ends up leading him to offer stinging challenges to our political, academic, and popular cultures, which are losing the transcendent and other-regarding moral vision that undergirds any sustainable human community. This excellent book makes an indispensable contribution to both biblical scholarship and contemporary social ethics.' - David P. Gushee, Mercer University, Atlanta, GA, USA. --Sanford Lakoff
