Holy War in Ancient Israel






Publisher:  Eerdmans Publishing Company, William B.
Summary: From the earliest days of Israel's existence as a people, holy war was a sacred institution, undertaken as a cultic act of a religious community. The concept of holy war, an intriguing and sometimes disturbing theme in the Old Testament, is given its most articulate expression in this classic study by the distinguished German scholar Gerhard von Rad. For Israel, the most important feature of holy war was the demand f...or faith in Yahweh's saving acts. However, von Rad argues, it was not Yahweh alone who acted; rather, because they envisioned Yahweh fighting on their behalf the Israelites themselves were inspired - and obliged - to fight even harder. In this regard, the actual events differed vastly from the picture given by the biblical narratives, which downplay and often exclude the human factor and stress the exclusive warlike action of Yahweh, thus equating holy war with absolute miracle.

Von Rad, Gerhard is the author of Holy War in Ancient Israel, published under ISBN 9780802805287 and 0802805280. Two hundred four Holy War in Ancient Israel textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, fifty five used from the cheapest price of $17.30, or buy new starting at $15.66.
