Item Description...
Zion, city of our God gathers studies by an international team of scholars that help portray the full significance of Jerusalem in the First Temple period of the Old Testament. John M. Monson explores Jerusalem's temple of Solomon in its original ancient Near Eastern context. Richard S. Hess looks at one of the most important events in the Bible's record of pre-exilic Jerusalem - Sennacherib's attack on the city. Martin J. Selman and Gary N. Knoppers outline the theological significance of Jerusalem in the books of Chronicles, providing as well a summary statement on the key role of the city in the entire Old Testament. Thomas Renz examines the Zion tradition as it underwent its greatest challenge, the fall of Jerusalem. Philip E. Satterthwaite and Knut M. Heim describe Jerusalem's place in the poetry of the Hebrew Bible, giving special attention, respectively, to the Songs of Ascents and Lamentations. Lastly, Rebecca Doyle discusses what Ugaritic, Old Testament, and other texts tell us about the cult of Molek and the worship of this god in Jerusalem.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Focused on Jerusalem - almost.  Nov 28, 2006
This collection of essays by nine scholars seeks its focus on the city of Jerusalem during the Old Testament period and makes for interesting reading. The book is less about Zion than one might think as each author presents a fairly focused study relating to Zion. So, for example, the article on Zion in the prophets is a study on Ezekiel, where Zion is never even mentioned, rather than prophets that do mention Zion (Isaiah & Jeremiah). The entries are interesting and helpful, some more than others. Satterthwaite's "Zion in the Songs of Ascents," adds to one's understanding of a that small collection of the Psalter more than the city of Jerusalem while the article on Lamentations is less about the context and role of Jerusalem and more about the construction of the book. In short, the book provides helpful information on a few sections of Scripture that relate to Zion rather than Zion itself but it makes for an enjoyable read.
