Item Description...
Have we any right to speak of the religion of ancient Israel? Are there connections between the religion of the patriarchs, that of the tribes who remained in Canaan and that of the Israelites who took part in the exodus and who experienced the period of wandering in the wilderness? To such questions Vriezen provides answers, based on textual, literary and archaeological evidence. Through church and synagogue the Old Testament has influenced Western Christendom, but it is also separated from us by a great gulf - of time, space, culture, thinking and belief. Vriezen provides a guide to the ancient near east and to Semitic civilisation and religion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Little Known Jewel  May 26, 2004
Many years ago, in a "rag store" nowhere in Tennessee, I found a whole back wall of book shelves. There were no decent source of theological books for a hundred miles and no good ones for 250. I was so desperate to read anything worthwhile in this Christian town.

One day I saw Theodore Vriezen's _The Religion of Ancient Israel_. I had done much independent study with numerous little books on ancient near eastern religion, and had also become a staunch monotheist. This book summed up and excelled at all the scraps of information I had collected. It was a godsend.

Since then I have many such introductions from the past 100 years including those of the "giants" both Jewish and Christian. When I want something I can feel safe with that truly describes the uniqueness of Israel's Yahwistic religion, I still reach for this old and beloved friend. I think this is the best intro out there especially for the student who does not know whether they are liberal or conservative theologically, or that they are supposed to be. The author is Christian but I do not see the typical bias as a Jew. It is my suggested first step. It also is a very positive book and explains Yahwism positively as well.

I am referring to the 1967 edition of this book in my comments. I was drawn to the book again today while writing my own book, and I wondered if it were still available. I have not seen it in the past, but today it came up here at this site in a 2002 edition which I have not seen.

Chapters are titled "Israel's Religion Against the Background of the Religions of the Ancient East"; Religious Life at about the Year 1000 (BCE)" "The Prehistory" "Yahweh" "The Victory of Yahwism" "New Forms of Life, State and Religion" "The Great Prophets" "Reformation and Downfall" "Regeneration and Recovery" "Centralization and Disintegration". It does contain some black & white gratuitous photo pages but I hope the new edition expands and improves the photos.

I give the book 5 stars because it does what it claims fairly, and I have been so pleased with it over the years and am so glad to see it back in circulation.
