Descrizione articolo


The Invention of Monotheist Ethics, Volume I presents a comprehensive analysis of the Biblical Book of Samuel. Usually taken to be a socio-political history of ancient Israel during a turbulent century of change, The Invention of Monotheist Ethics contends that beneath this surface level the true focus of Samuel is a profound appraisal of power, its seductive appeal and its drastic limitations. Thus Samuel emerges as a radical critique of our power-based world, and the way we, its inhabitants, order our lives. Taken together with the contention that the Book of Samuel was written by a woman, the Biblical book emerges as a woman's critique of a man's world. This assessment concludes by proposing an alternative to the world we know: a world based on care and concern. Relying on recent sociological studies, this work explores the ramifications of an ethic based on care rather than justice.

About the Author:

Hillel I. Millgram currently resides in Jerusalem. He was born in the United States, was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and served in pulpits in the U.S. and Canada. He now combines research and writing with teaching graduate courses on the Bible. His last book, Three Biblical Heroines and the Case for Female Authorship, has been highly acclaimed. The Invention of Monotheist Ethics continues his explorations into the origins and deeper meaning of Biblical narrative.
