Early Israelite religion arose within the ancient Semitic world, spoke and wrote in Semitic, and initially accepted the common Semitic belief that there was a pantheon of deities. 26 Gen 6:1-4 appears to be a crucial remnant of that early belief.

This is a very important collection of 33 essays by 33 different scholars. It's divided into two halves, the first on material evidence for Israelite religion and revolving largely around monarchical times, and the second on literary criticism from early times down to the postexilic period. Most of the essays are very good, even ones that are not so long as others. I can still hand out some accolade. Tigay wins for most compelling argument; Oden for the best survey of his topic; Lohfink for the most upfront, no-nonsense presentation; Talmon for most eloquent; and Naveh for most difficult. (in the tradition of Cross himself) For most insightful I came up with a tie between Jacobsen and Collins. By contrast, if there was ever gook that was gobbledy in this anthology, Janzen and Goshen-Gottenstien must be marked. I've decided to take the time to list all the contributions to help pique potential buyers'/readers' interest:

Ancient Israelite Religion brings the reader into extraordinary contact with a wide perspective on the subject and affords awareness of the work of contemporary world renown scholars in the field. It is a valuable resource. I have bought two copies, one for my personal use and one to share and am considering ordering a third. I am thankful to have found it. It is an inspiration from cover to cover.

This is a book for historians and scholars, there is no doubt about it. For this review, I re-read David Freeman's essay "Who Is Like Thee Among The Gods? The Religion of Early Israel" and found it just as relevant as when I first read this book. (My copy has a bank-receipt in it dated 1990, used as a bookmark.) There is nothing like watching a true historian tear into his or her sources and select the ones most likely to be reliable, explaining why as they do so, then use these few passages to elucidate the entire text from which they were taken. I love close textual analysis and critical examination of source material, and this amazing book is filled with both. It is a dense, rich volume, with 33 essays from leading scholars of their time, alas, now over 25 years ago. An earlier reviewer listed the contents, so there is no need to repeat his labor. Instead, I will be content to say that the level of criticism and analysis presented here is worthy of the book being examined, a book so important to the history of humanity that its name means simply "The Book".
This is NOT a book for the casual reader, not for those who believe Moses wrote the Pentateuch. (Or that God did.) Instead, it is for those who want to understand the origins and development of the OT, and are willing to dig into these exceptional essays, setting aside their own preconceptions.
