The Gift of the Land and the Fate of the Canaanites in Jewish Thought

Description

This volume of essays presents a compelling and comprehensive analysis of the intriguing issue of the gift of the land of Israel and the fate of the Canaanites as presented in diverse biblical sources. Jewish thought has long grappled with the moral and theological implications and challenges of this issue. Innovative interpretive strategies and philosophical reflections were offered, modified, and sometimes rejected over the centuries. Leading contemporary scholars
follow these threads of interpretation offered by Jewish thinkers from antiquity to modern times.
