ABOUT THIS BOOK

A valuable resource with productive avenues for inquiry


In this collection of essays dealing with the prophetic material in the Hebrew Bible, scholars explore the motifs, effects, and role of forced migration on prophetic literature. Contributors focus on the study of geographical displacement, social identity ethics, trauma studies, theological diversification, hermeneutical strategies in relation to the memory, and the effects of various exilic conditions in order to open new avenues of study into the history of Israelite religion and early Judaism.


Features:


  • An introductory essay that presents a history of scholarship and an overview of the collection

  • Ten essays examining the rhetoric of exile in the prophets

  • Current, thorough approaches to the issues and problems related to historical and cultural features of exile in biblical literature
