Summary
Back cover: The book explores the literary and ideological development of God's threats to destroy the people of Israel. The idea that God could harm Israel exists in the biblical texts alongside the belief that this people is chosen and has a unique bond with God. The book employs a diachronic method to explore the ways in which the tradition was formed and developed, tracing the authors' exegetical purposes and ploys, and the historical realities of their time
