Abstract:

Theodicy-defending God in the face of historical catastrophe and evil-is a central concern in the Hebrew Bible. Joel S. Burnett shows that the theme of divine absence was important in ancient near eastern reflection on the mystery of the divine and that it served both as a way of asking about the justice of God and of affirming God's justice in ancient Israel. Where is God? explores themes of divine presence and absence in creation and wisdom thought, in ritual, in prophetic threat, in narrative, and in apocalypse throughout the Hebrew Bible.
