Reviews

This is an important book, not only as a contribution to the study of Jewish origins . . . but more, for the author's approach to the Hebrew Bible as canon. . . . Blenkinsopp has applied the insights of sociological studies, particularly those of Max Weber and Otto PlΓΆger, to the study of canon. In showing that canon functions at the very center of one of the most basic conflicts in a religious community, and in fact functions to preserve tension rather than to settle the conflict, Blenkinsopp has made an important contribution to the study of canon.--Journal of Biblical Literature
