Review:

'The Immoral Bible is academic - though totally accessible... There is much in this book to set everyone thinking.' --goodbookstall.org.uk

'Davies takes all the strategies seriously and his survey will be of as much value to the general reader as to the specialist.' --The Catholic Herald, 11th Feb 2011

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This title discusses the ethically problematic passages of the Hebrew Bible and the way scholars have addressed aspects of the bible generally regarded as offensive and unacceptable. In this work, Eryl W. Davies sums up a career's worth of in-depth reflection on the thorny issue of biblical ethics examining the bible's, at times problematic, stance upon slavery, polygamy and perhaps its most troublesome aspect, the sanctioning of violence and warfare. This is most pertinent in respect to Joshua 6-11 a text which lauds the 'holy war' of the Israelites, annihilating the native inhabitants of Canaan, and a text which has been used to legitimise the actions of white colonists in North America, the Boers in South Africa and right-wing Zionists in modern Israel. Davies begins with an introductory chapter assessing all these aspects, he then provides five chapters, each devoted to a particular strategy aimed at mitigating the embarrassment caused by the presence of such problematic texts within the canon. In order to focus discussion each strategy is linked by to Joshua 6-11.There is a final chapter that draws the threads of the arguments together and suggests the most promising areas for the future development of the discipline.
