The Land Is Mine: Six Biblical Land Ideologies

Synopsis

Norman C. Habel identifies six discrete ideologies in the Hebrew Bible regarding land: royal, agrarian, theocratic, prophetic, ancestral household, and immigrant.

"The upshot of the book is to show in powerful ways both (a) that the Bible should not be read innocently, and that the God practiced in the several ideologies is a player in Israel's propertied life, and (b) that those old 'ideological-theological' positions continue to be poignantly pertinent in the world of contemporary interpretation."

--Walter Brueggemann
