To Kill and Take Possession: Law, Morality, and Society in Biblical Stories

Daniel Friedmann

Publisher: Hendrickson

The stories in the Bible present some of the most memorable approaches to justice ever described. Legal scholar Daniel Friedmann explores the legal, moral, and political aspects of well-known and dramatic biblical tales. Friedmann’s analyses include reference to ancient law codes, mythology, literature, the history of law, as well complex contemporary issues, ranging from marriage and maternity disputes to religious and national identity. A bestseller in Israel, now translated into English, To Kill and Take Possession reveals how ancient attitudes have had continuing relevance throughout history and up to the present.
