Item Description...
Overview
Considering the extent of social injustice in the world today, how can Christians combine their efforts with those of other concerned people to solve this problem? Social Justice in the Hebrew Bible offers an answer to this question by examining how Israel used the social justice thought of other Near Eastern peoples to face its own justice crises. It uses as its framework the Hebrew Bible's statements about this issue in its law codes, prophetic books, psalms, narrative works, and wisdom literature. Malchow demonstrates that Israel did not originate the concept of social justice. Rather, it drew its resources for overcoming it from Near Eastern thought on the subject. By combining its own ideas of social justice with those of its neighbors, Israel's people fought injustice with what was "new" and what was "old." Israel's three methods of acceptance, adaptation, and transformation remain relevant to the changing conditions of life today. They are useful in our integrations of non-Christian thought with our own and continue to shape Israel's justice tradition. Social injustice is an immense and world-wide problem. Social Justice in the Hebrew Bible stresses that in order for Christians to be ethically responsible and true to their tradition, they must join forces with other concerned people in the struggle against it.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Comprehensive without being exhaustive  Oct 27, 2001
I guess I liked this book because it confirms a suspicion I've been harboring during most of my thirty years of enthusiastic Bible reading--that the authors of the Hebrew Bible weren't as original as the Christian (and I suspect Jewish) community would like to believe. Although this book may for some readers dim the halo on the Sacred Text, Malchow is not on a debunking crusade. He simply points out how much of what is found in the Bible is remarkably similar to what can be found in many different kinds of texts (legal, liturgical, sapiential) common to the Ancient Near East. Nor does he waste much ink trying to prove direct dependencies. In fact, wasting ink and killing trees is the last thing you could accuse him of doing. At 88 pages (counting the introduction and bibliography), this is a lean volume that gets right to the point. It has helpful chapters on "Law Codes", "The Prophetic Books," "The Psalms," "Late Narrative Works," and "The Wisdom Literature." If Malchow's statement that much of the biblical literature was written by a privileged elite (including many of the prophets) is true, it is both astonishing and gratifying that these people so often spoke out against their own class and on behalf of the poor and marginalized. This is a book I plan to hold on to and read again and again.
 
Good little introduction to a huge topic  Sep 25, 2000
The book amazingly summurizes how the Israelites understood Justice. He goes trhough the major texts of the Hebrew Bible and analyzes the context in which they were writte. He constantly keep an eye on the Near Eastern texts which are, more or less, older than some sections of the bible.

The book, however, has 78 pages of text, and, even though it was published in 1996, all the works cited go all the way to 1991. It feels as though something is lacking, but overall it's a good little introduction to a huge topic
