Yahweh--the patriarch : ancient images of God and feminist theology by Erhard S Gerstenberger( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Israel's conceptions of God changed, argues Gerstenberger, over the millennium witnessed in Hebrew Scriptures. Contrary to widespread opinion, the author shows that historical and biblical evidence points to an active early participation of women in cultic life, especially in the domestic realm when, in the sixth century, the status of women underwent a change. Social upheaval, political and economic stress, and the growing influence of priestly circles converged to redefine God in male terms. This book explores the religious role of women in these different periods and social organizations. How did women lose a strong position in Israelite house cult, as attested in Scriptures and through archaeological findings? Why did Yahweh, who once had a consort, Asherah, turn into a lone and militantly male deity? --From publisher's description

Theologies in the Old Testament by Erhard S Gerstenberger( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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{u2014}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
Leviticus : a commentary by Erhard S Gerstenberger( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leviticus offers many challenges for interpretation, including the laws contained within the book, as well as questions of the book's origins and compilation. This new commentary by Old Testament scholar Erhard Gerstenberger provides a sure guide through the text of Leviticus and these questions. Gerstenberger understands that Leviticus is the product of an Israel reconstituted as a community of faith during the Persian period. The commentary provides suggestions regarding daily life questions on how one worships the one universal God within the local communities of congregation and family. In this interpretation, the book of Leviticus offers clear words of instruction to those throughout the world who would live faithfully for Israel's God

Leviticus; a commentary by Martin Noth( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in German and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book of Leviticus particularly reveals something of the living variety and historical development of the whole system of worship in ancient Israel, a cultic worship which was a central element in her life. The present commentary attempts by means of the text to make clear the actual life and the historical changes in the cultus of ancient Israel. - Preface
Israel in the Persian period : the fifth and fourth centuries B.C.E. by Erhard S Gerstenberger( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and German and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the Persians are seldom mentioned explicitly in the Hebrew Bible, the Persian period (539-331 B.C.E.) gave new shape to ancient Israel, as the biblical text evolved and the foundations of the Judeo-Christian tradition were laid. Therefore, contrary to earlier views, Persian politics, culture, and religion were the setting within which the nascent Jewish community lived and took shape. Against the backdrop of the history and intellectual world of Persia, Gerstenberger describes this exciting 200-year period in the history of Israel, which saw both the creation of biblical literature (historical, prophetic, and poetic writings, especially the Psalms) and important theological developments (e.g., the shape and characteristics of the Jewish community, monotheism, and new means of shaping one's world)
