Imperialism and Biblical Prophecy: 750-500 BCE

Front Cover
Routledge, Jan 11, 2013 - History - 144 pages
Imperialism and Biblical Prophecy is a radically new interpretation of prophetic poetry. Using more than thirty new translations from the Hebrew Bible, it shows that this poetry is inseparable from imperialism, that each of the three major waves of biblical prophecy which have survived in the Old Testament occurred in response to simultaneous waves of imperialist conquest.
