Item Description...
Scholarly discussions of biblical interpretation often ignore the fact that language and literature form an integral part of a people's culture, that interpretation therefore implies the total cultural system of the relevant literature, and that biblical interpretation consequently implies inter-cultural communication. This book explores the theoretical and practical implications of this observation from a cultural anthropological perspective, looks at recent anthropological studies of ancient Israelite society, supplies practical examples of a cultural interpretation of ancient Hebrew narratives, and discusses the impact of the notions 'cultural relativity' and 'inter-cultural communication' for biblical interpretation.>

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Cultural interpretation of ancient Hebrew narratives  Mar 11, 2001
Ferdinand Deist's The Material Culture Of The Bible offers a scholarly discussion and exploration of the theoretical and practical implications that language and literature have to offer a sound cultural anthropological perspective of ancient Israelite society. The reader is furnished with practical examples of cultural interpretation of ancient Hebrew narratives, as well as informative assessments of the impact "cultural relativity" and "inter-cultural communications" has upon biblical interpretation. The Material Culture Of The Bible is an academically sound, superbly presented, highly informative contribution to biblical and anthropological studies.
