Exile and Restoration - a Study of Hebrew Thought of the Sixth Century Bc
London, SCM Press. 1968, First Edition. (ISBN: 0334004098). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with dustjacket which has a small repaired closed tear to lower front. xv + 286 pages. The period of exile and restoration is a crucial one for the understanding of the development of Old Testament thought. The collapse of the state, the destruction of the Temple, the break-up of the community, all necessitated a re-thinking of the religious tradition. This book sets out to examine some of the aspects of the rich thought of the period. The problems involved are many: the course of events is not always clear, and the literature of the time presents difficulties. Much of this study is therefore devoted to a thorough scrutiny of what material we have: Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Haggai, Zechariah, the Deuteronomic History and the Priestly Work. NOT EX LIB R3. Fine/Very Good.
