Book review

This volume is interested in what the Old Testament and  beyond (Dead Sea Scrolls and Targum) has to say about ethical behaviour through its characters, through its varying portrayals of God  and humanity in mutual dialogue and through its authors.  It covers a wide range of genres of Old Testament material such as law, prophecy and wisdom.  It takes key themes such as friendship and the holy war tradition and it considers key texts.  It considers authorial intention in the portrayal of ethical stances.  It also links up with wider ethical issues such as the environment and human engagement with the 'dark side' of God.

It is a multi-authored volume, but the unifying theme was made clear at the start and contributors have worked to that remit.  This has resulted in a wide-ranging and fascinating insight into a neglected area, but one that is starting to receive increased attention in the biblical area.
