Item Description...
Overview
In this volume in the Library of Ancient Israel, the author investigates three forms of biblical Israel's intellectual and religious leadership; the sage, the priest, and the prophet. He looks at the development and character of these roles and how they functioned in their particular time and place. This investigation will lead to a keener understanding of the literature of the Old Testament and the society in which it evolved. It will also shed light on how certain religious traditions originated and how they have developed.

Publishers Description

In this first volume of the Library of Ancient Israel series, Joseph Blenkinsopp investigates three forms of biblical Israel's intellectual and religious leadership: the sage, the priest, and the prophet. The people who occupied these roles were directly responsible for what appears in the Old Testament text. Blenkinsopp looks at the development of these roles and how they functioned in their particular time and place. This investigation will lead to a keener understanding of the literature of the Old Testament and the society in which it evolved.

Volumes in the Library of Ancient Israel draw on multiple disciplines--such as archaeology, anthropology, sociology, linguistics, and literary criticism--to illuminate the everyday realities and social subtleties these ancient cultures experienced. This series employs sophisticated methods resulting in original contributions that depict the reality of the people behind the Hebrew Bible and interprets these insights for a wide variety of readers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Do NOT waste your time on this turgid resource  Aug 13, 2009
In this book, Joseph Blenkinsopp, Professor Emeritus in the Theology Department at the University of Notre Dame, attempts to examine the intellectual leadership in Israel as exercised by three groups of people - sages, priests and prophets. Each group is given its own section, and the available information is looked at from various sources.

Now, where do I start with this book? I must say that I found it to be completely useless. The book was written for an academic audience, and it shows an obscurantism, an impenetrability to the non-academic reader, that I found breathtaking. The author repeatedly makes statements such as "we assume..." (p.119) and "most scholars would agree..." (p.166). Who are "we" and who are these scholars? It gives the books a feeling of being presented ex cathedra.

No, I picked up this book, hoping to understand the roles of, and the interaction between the various intellectual leaders of Ancient Israel, and I finished the book knowing no more about the subject than when I started. If you are a casual, non-academic reader, interested in Ancient Israel, then I would highly recommend that you do NOT waste your time on this turgid resource.
