Reading Hosea in Achaemenid Yehud (Journal For The Study Of The Old Testament Supplement Series)

James M. Trotter, Andrew Mein, Claudia V. Camp

Hardback 2001-11-01

Publisher Description

An examination of the final form of Hosea within the socio-historical context of Persian period Judah, using both historical-critical and reader-oriented perspectives. This work examines the final form of Hosea within the socio-historical context of Persian period Judah, making use of insights from historical-critical and reader-oriented perspectives. The amalgamation of these two seemingly divergent approaches creates a framework within which the setting and interpretive practices of both the modern critic and the ancient reader(s) can be taken seriously. The resulting examination proposes a reading of Hosea shaped, as far as possibly, by the reading conventions and socio-religious concerns of Persian period Judahites.
