The Memoirs of God: History, Memory, and the Experience of the Divine in Ancient Israel

Front Cover
Fortress Press, 2004 - History - 187 pages
This insightful work examines the variety of ways that collective memory, oral tradition, history, and history writing intersect. Integral to all this are the ways in which ancient Israel was shaped by the monarchy, the Babylonian exile, and the dispersions of Judeans and the ways in which Israel conceptualized and interacted with the divine—Yahweh as well as other deities.
