Summary
The land was one of the most vibrant symbols for the people of ancient Israel. In the land--gift, temptation and task--was found the physical source of Israel's fertility and life, and a place for the gathering of the hopes of the covenant people. In this careful treatment, the author follows the development of his theme through the major blocks of Israel's traditions. The book provides a point of entrance to the theology of the Old Testament and to aspects of the New Testament--even as it illuminates crucial issues of our day
