Only in the past two decades have Old Testament scholars begun to acquaint themselves with recent major developments in social anthrolpology.  At the same time, social anthropologists have shown and interest in the Old Testament as a subject for anthropological investigation, and a dialogue has begun to develop between anthropologists and Old Testament specialists.

This book introduces the student to the subject and provides the complete material needed for a course on anthropology and the Old Testament.  In his introduction, Bernhard Lang sketches the main areas and methods of investigation and the developments that have occurred over the past twenty years.  The essays included are all major contributions on key subjects: Isrealite kinship, slavery, the sin of Cain, the dietary laws of Leviticus, the social conditions in the Hebrew village, sacrifice, and prophecy.   All demonstrate that the application of scientific ,ethods to the study of the Old Testament world has greatly contributed to our understanding of its religion, as well as its social and cultural setting.
