Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Reflections on the Silence of God: A Discussion with Marjo Korpel and Johannes de Moor contains the table of contents. Korpel and De Moor construe the culture of Ancient Israel in which the Hebrew Bible emerged as a part of the more general Ancient Near Eastern culture. They do not adhere to the 'cheese-cover' approach. According to this traditional view Ancient Israel was not part of, but rather apart from the Ancient Near Eastern culture. This approach is eloquently voiced by Heiko Miskotte, who construed the Hebrew Bible as 'an anti-pagan testimony'. Contemporary Biblical studies make clear that the Hebrew Bible can only be understood within the framework of the Ancient Near Eastern culture.

Keywords: Ancient Israel; Hebrew Bible; Johannes de Moor; Marjo Korpel
