Contents:
1. Preliminary Remarks -- 2. Introduction -- 3. Sketch of the Social History of Israel -- 4. Deity in the Circle of Family and Clan -- 5. Deities of the Village (Small-Town) Community -- 6.

Summary: Internationally renowned scholar Erhard Gerstenberger here offers a radical departure from traditional treatments. Rather than a systematic approach to theological topics in the Old Testament, Gerstenberger discusses its various theological voices rooted in different social settings within ancient Israel: the family and clan, the village, the tribal group, and the kingdom. Further, he discusses the variety of Israel's views concerning the divine--polytheism, syncretism, and monotheism. Gerstenberger concludes with his reflections on how contemporary theology is informed by the biblical witness and how it must be contextual and ecumenical in order to be authentic.
